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 kids love pizza.

• Knicks coach Mike Woodson was wearing a T-shirt with his face on it. That may be the best coach shirt ever.

• Here is your Greg Oden update, from long-time NBA writer Shaun Powell: Agent Mike Conley says Greg Oden will not decide on his next team until July. Cavs, Heat and Celtics in running.

• I’d still bet on the Cavaliers winning that. Oden is in Ohio right now plus they can offer more money than those other teams.

• If you watch one player interview today, it should be Kenneth Fariedthe Nugget forward who has two momstalking homosexuality in sports with friend of this site Kevin Arnovitz at ESPN.

A great look at Daryl Morey in Houston by my man Zach Lowe at Grantland, where everybody was frustrated with Morey but now the Rockets look good — they are playoff bound, they have James Harden, they just nabbed Thomas Robinson and they have enough cap space to offer a max deal to someone this summer. I’m looking at you, Dwight Howard.

• My guess is that the Rockets will not sign anyone this summer, they will carry over that cap space and look at the 2014 and 2015 classes. But as the Rockets win they will get attention from free agents. When LaMarcus Aldridge was asked what he told potential free agents to get them to Portland, his response was “We have cap space.” Guys will play where the money is.

• Former WNBA star Chamique Holdsclaw has been indicted in a shooting incident with her girlfriend.

• If you want an early look at how the NCAA Tournament brackets will break out, here is the current CollegeBasketballTalk thinking.

• I’m not sure he stays this summer, but Al Jefferson has a soft spot for Utah: “Utah’s been the best thing that ever happened to my career. This team has been the best thing that ever happened to me.”

• For masochistic Magic fans, J.J. Redick reflects back on the whole “Dwightmare” situation.

• Michael Jordan purchased a new $2.8 million home in North Carolina. I bet it’s nicer than mine.

• Finally, Sixers coach Doug Collins says his team being young is no excuse for playing like…. fertilizer.

    Ever since I watched that Faried video with his Moms, I’ve loved him even more. This guy needs to be lavished praise. He can do a lot for pro sports in general. In the next 10 years there might even be an openly gay NFL/NBA player which Faried should probably deserve a little credit for. Just awesome.

    Also, Doug Collins is the man, Not a Sixers fan, but how can you not appreciate how he overachieves?

    two moms and no dad, there has to be a dad some where out there.

    Faried is a monster, guy is not big, not fast but plays with a lot of heart.

    Finally watched that interview with Faried and his moms; sorry, but I’m not impressed. There wasn’t a single intelligible argument for gay marriage in that interview. Now I’m all for it; I think a person should be able to marry an electric shaver if they want but you’re not convincing me of anything in that interview. Faried doesn’t seem like a particularly bright lad.
