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.

• The incomparable Lang Whitaker put together his YOLO All-Star team for GQ. You can be sue Nate Robinson made this squad.

Dwight Howard says that his back is still bad enough that sitting down in a chair can cause his legs to go numb. No, he didn’t push to get back to quickly from offseason surgery, what would make you say that?

Michael Beasley admits he made mistakes when he was pulled over for speeding, driving on a suspended license and other car violations, but that the situation got blown out of proportion. This really wouldn’t be a big deal if there wasn’t a history here.

• The Spurs are heading out on their annual rodeo trip

• A fantastic breakdown of how Antawn Jamison slips the high screen and how that impacts the offense.

• In case you didn’t notice, the Birdman Chris Andersen is playing pretty well in Miami.

• Here is a Taj Gibson Q&A.

• Here is a great story about playground legend James Board in the Washington Post.
