Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT).

Anthony Morrow is going to wear a Drazen Petrovic Nets throwback jersey during the All-Star Three Point Contest next weekend in Orlando. Petrovic was a legendary player and the last Net in the three point contest. He was killed in a car accident at age 28. That is an incredibly cool idea.

Mark Cuban on the Nets moving to Brooklyn: “’I hope the stadium works, I hope they do a great job and I hope the team sucks.”

Allen Iverson has gotten a contract offer — from an indoor soccer team.

Fernando Valenzuela is one of the few people on the planet who could probably relate Jeremy Lin, and he talks about it.

J.R. Smith wants to take advantage of his “clean slate” in New York to rebuild his image.

Tracy McGrady is not happy with how he is being used in Atlanta. Yes, that is the Hawks biggest problem by far.

Raymond Felton isn’t happy with how he’s being used in Portland. My advice, shoot better than 36.6 percent on the year and he might like how he gets used better.

In Houston, Samuel Dalembert got benched for missing shootaround on Sunday — Patrick Patterson started and Delembert played off the bench. And not all that well.

Defensive specialist and Thunder starting two guard Thabo Sefolosha will miss about another month with a tendon injury in his foot.

J.J. Hickson isn’t having a lot of fun in Sacramento and misses Cleveland. So, there is at least one person who misses Cleveland.

Nets guard Jordan Farmar will be out likely through the All-Star break with a groin injury.

Good one from Chris Sheridan at Sheridanhoops: “Hasheem Thabeet was a DNP with a sore lower back, which is what can happen when you sit on the bench for extended periods of time, like a month.”

Hit comedy “The Big Bang Theory” had its nerd characters try their hands at basketball last episode.

Danilo Gallinari is still limited to bike work and will still be early next month before he returns (which was the original time table).

Tony Parker is opening up a night club in San Antonio.

The Knicks had to waive Ronaldo Balkman to make room for J.R. Smith, the Nets might pick him up.

Cleveland did not give Ben Uzoh a second 10-day contract.

    Didn’t see this on there but a funny one for Timberwolves fans. A little hazing done by Brad Miller to Lee, Williams, and Rubio. Here is the picture

    Nice find justin haha that was funny stuff. Easily could have replaced PBT’s bullet point about the big bang theory considering it actually has to do with an NBA team

      Lol thanks I had a good laugh over it. Also found this on Rubio’s twitter account. I am sure that plane ride is much different this year as compared to the last 2 years under Rambis. Being in the hunt for the playoffs doesn’t hurt either.!/rickyrubio9/status/171464001862119425/photo/1

    Drazen Petrovic…wow, that name’s a blast from the past! I remember when I was young shooting trey bombs in the front yard against my neighbors saying his name before every shot! I also used to give Danny Ainge and John Paxon a shout out too, lol…ahhh memories.
