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) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points.

• There is a report that Ricky Rubio has signed a shoe deal with adidas, which if true would be a coup for the shoe company. It would give Adidas a real international hoop presence to go with Derrick Rose (and to a lesser degree Dwight Howard). This report is coming out of the site tubasket.com in Spain and with no details as to length or money, so I’m a bit skeptical, but it would not be a shock. (Hat tip to minnesporta.com for the link.)

• The Thunder’s in arena PA announcer has been arrested for lewd acts with children, which if true are just vile. Needless to say he is not working the playoffs anymore.

Kris Humphries is a Douchebag. (NSFW language but this cracked me up, loved that he did this.)

• How bad does Mike Woodson apparently want the Knicks coaching job? He is switching agents to one owner James Dolan likes.

John Wall wants to be the guy to change things around in Washington. I’ll paraphrase Gandhi here: John, be the change you want to see in the Wizards.

• Or, John Wall can talk to his twitter buddy Arron Rogers about what it takes to win.

Deron Williams is hanging out in Istanbul (where he played during the lockout) with Nets brass and owner Mikhail Prokhorov and watching the EuroLeague final four.

• Pacers coach Frank Vogel talking playoffs.

• Along those lines, the Pacers players don’t see themselves as underdogs.

• Photographic proof of the Hawks Ivan Johnson flipping off some Celtics fans. The fine will be coming soon.

Danilo Gallinari tells an Italian blogger that the Lakers get all the calls? He has to go overseas to say that? He should just go to our comment section on any Lakers story.

• Golden State has settled a couple of sexual harassment lawsuits filed against the franchise.

Baron Davis had his knee surgery Thursday.

• The Mayor of Columbus, Ohio, is making a pitch to the NBA to bring a team to his city. Must be an election year.
