A professional basketball player's official camp offers young fans quite a bit. They get quality instruction in a sport they love (or that their parents think they should love), spend some time with likeminded peers, and get to meet at least one of their heroes.

By all reasonable standards, Washington Wizards center Marcin Gortat made his arrival at his basketball camp in Poland a little more memorable, if only because it'll give campers nightmares for years.
