If the lockout begins at 12:01 a.m. Friday, Nets players won't be able to work out at PNY Center in East Rutherford. No pick-up games observed by team officials, no weight training with Rich Dalatri, no health tips from Tim Walsh. All officially verboten till a new CBA is agreed to...and that could be a long, long time.
But Al Iannazzone thinks the Nets players may already have an alternative scoped out, the Peak Performance Project in Santa Barbara, CA. Two weeks ago, all the (healthy) Nets under contract --Deron Williams, Brook Lopez, Travis Outlaw, Jordan Farmar, Anthony Morrow, Johan Petro and Damion James-- spent three days working out together at P3. This week, immediately after their press conference, MarShon Brooks and Jordan Williams flew cross country to do the same and meet with Avery Johnson to discuss what they should be doing over the next days, weeks or months.
"They train. They test them, [strengthen] different parts of the muscles" said Billy King of P3, a favorite haunt of D-Will when he was with the Jazz. "Give them a plan. Map it out for them for the summer. It’s more weight and training."
