LeBron James, Chris Paul teach and motivate future NBA stars at a 2008 camp (VIDEO)

May 19, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

This video was recently released by the folks that run the website for LeBron James, and it gives us a glimpse into the types of motivational words and teachings that young NBA prospects received from James and Chris Paul five years ago.

The highlights come from a 2008 summer camp that took place before the Beijing Olympics, and Stephen Curry and James Harden were two of the future star players seen in the video who were in attendance.

    Good stuff.

    Not exactly a big LeBron or CP3 fan (his flop against Demarcus Cousins this season was indefensible), but I respect guys who take the time to pass on their knowledge to the next generation. It leads to better basketball being played, which is more enjoyable to watch.
