Based on the pictures and social media updates on day one of the men's national team training camp, I'm having some first day of school flashbacks, but with taller, much taller people. As a reminder, John Wall and Bradley Beal are two of 19 players competing in Las Vegas for 12 roster spots as Team USA prepares for next month's World Cup of Basketball in Spain.
First up, Wall and Beal letting everyone know they arrived safely

Working on penmanship
Class picture (It appears Wall and Kyrie Irving didn't get the "no smiles" memo.)
Going over the syllabus
Wall also ate a meal at the cool kids table with guys named Boogie and Chandler.
There's also plenty of attention focused on the big kid on campus, i.e., Kevin Durant, one of three players in camp who also played on the 2012 Olympic gold medal winning team. For those Wizards fans who want to see Durant sinking a jumper while wearing red, white and blue gear including shoes, enjoy.
