Thomsen: Blazers C Marcus Camby Is Still Kicking

Ian Thomsen of SI.com writes that Portland Trail Blazers center Marcus Camby is still kicking as he approaches 38-years-old thanks to an attitude adjustment and the extended layoff created by the lockout. ------------------------------ Not so long ago, he admitted, he would have complained about averaging his current 3.1 shots per game. "A whole lot," he said with a laugh. "Especially when you're young, and you come in with all the hoopla as the college player of the year, and you know you want to focus on scoring and starring and things that really don't matter as you get older. Now I'm really all about winning. I want to win a championship. I never won one; I got to the Finals that one time. My stats aren't there, but I'm a starter, and I know I have a voice on team." ... And as he watches McMillan, Camby thinks about becoming a coach someday. "I would definitely have no shootarounds," he said with a hoarse laugh. ------------------------------ -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
