Here is our regular 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 like Guy Fieri loves bacon and bad hair.

• Who are the best three-point shooters never to win the All-Star Weekend Three-Point shootout? I think Reggie Miller wins that contest, but there are some good names on the All Ball list.

• Video of James Harden making it rain at a strip club. And no,I’m not posting that video.

Rudy Gay, John Wall and a great list of players who need to step up this season (including a few who already got paid on potential).

• Mark Cuban says he hopes the eight newcomers to the Mavericks roster will stick with the team for a long time. Which is the right thing to say, but he will kick them all to the curb this summer for a shot at someone like Chris Paul. (As he should.)

Ray Allen is already down in Miami working on his shot.

• A couple of high-end children’s sporting good shops in Manhattan are going to have 3-D Carmelo Anthonys to help guide people around the store and answer questions. No, I am not making that up.

• How the divorce of the Maloof sister — you know, the one on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills — impacts the Kings. Which is not really that much save just more embarrassment for a family that has had plenty of it.

Dwight Howard‘s rehab has reached the point he has stepped on to a court. Expect the Lakers to bring him along slowly, it’s about June not November.

• You can trade in your guns for Memphis Grizzlies tickets. No, you do not get the weapons back if they lose.

• A fantastic, even handed look at what it has taken to get this far with the Seattle plan for a new arena from friend of this blog Kevin Pelton.

• Timberwolves big man Nikola Pekovic has los lost almost 10 pounds this summer and thinks that will help him stay more healthy next season.

Chris Bosh scooping ice cream for charity. There’s a good joke in there but I just can’t find it. At least he wasn’t hanging at clubs with James Harden.

• Erik Spoelstra says a lot of nice things about the potential of Mickell Gladness. America shrugs.

• The Heat are bringing in Garrett Temple as training camp fodder.

• The Thunder are apparently bringing in Andy Rautins as camp fodder.

• The Knicks are bringing in swingman Mychel Thompson, center Henry Sims and guard Oscar Bellfield as camp fodder.

• Former Celtics first rounder J.R. Giddens has signed with Centrale del Latte Brescia in the Italian league.

• Otis Smith (you last remember him as the Magic GM until he was canned) is going into the Florida Association of Basketball Coaches Court of Legends.

• The mother of Pacer and former Tar Heal Tyler Hansbrough may be part of a fundraising scandal at the university.

• It’s not NBA but I find it interesting: The widespread cheating scandal at Harvard has reached into the basketball team.

• Zach Lowe, one of the very best NBA bloggers out there, is leaving SI. This would make me really sad if I was not going to be able to read his stuff at Grantland soon.

• As a final bonus, here is Scottie Pippen talking Phil Jackson, Derrick Rose, superteams and more.
