Why where you hold training camp matters

As posted previously here, selecting a site for training camp is a key decision. This year, for example, the Celtics are training in Newport, R.I. Boston coach Doc Rivers explains why:

"I wanted somewhere with just enough distance to make it inconvenient to drive back and forth from home. When you are in the same place all year, it gets old, stale. Whenever you can get away, it's good. And it's good for team building, and I don't think you ever can have enough of that."
