I have a couple of nice, camel hair, sports coats I'd like to wear without looking like the Hulk. Any advice?

Take them to a tailor. If you remove the shoulder pads and replace them with thinner pads, the shoulder angle has to be increased to match the thinner pads or they'll look weirdly square, without anything to fill them. And once you change the shoulder angle, the sleeve head has to be reshaped to fit the new improved armhole.

Or find a similarly 80s shoulder-padded sportcoat in a thrift store and try out the above suggestions for yourself. If it turns out well, you could move on to one of your nice ones. If it's horrible and difficult, off to the tailor you can go.
