A Basketball Academy With a Difference

Running basketball camps is that not uncommon for the league's players--five Nets are conducting them this summer. But one with a perennial All-Star as camp counsellor is. For years, Vince Carter has run a basketball academy in Daytona Beach, hosting a few hundred kids at his old high school.

Marcus Williams, meanwhile, opens his camp Monday in Bridgewater.
