Jermaine talking with USA Today about his offseason training so far in Vegas. Talks about the level of competition in Vegas right now is the best available this side of Beijing. Also throws some compliments Andrea's way.
I hope Bargnani's listening and paying attention to Jermaine, so that he actually learns something this summer.

The level of competition, which O'Neal says is "by far" the best this side of Beijing, can't be duplicated in a team's practice facility. And although the games won't show up in the next day's standings, don't tell the players they don't count.
"There's a lot of talking and it's competitive," O'Neal says. "If you lose, you're off the court."
