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.

Blake Griffin is a new proud father of Ford Wilson Cameron-Griffin, who was born Aug. 1. Congrats to Griffin and we hope the child is healthy and happy. Of course, what is going to get people’s attention is who he had the baby with, as reported by TMZ:

Former USC basketball star Brynn Cameron has an eye for athletic sperm. You may recall she had a baby with NFL QB Matt Leinart. Well guess whose baby she just had …

What we can really hope for is a healthy, happy childhood for Ford. Nothing else really matters.

• Since we’re being sensational, here is Gilbert Arenas and Nick Young getting their pictures taken with a topless mermaid.

There is no timetable for Lou Williams and his return to the Hawks following a torn ACL.

• As expected, the Trail Blazers have waived Terrel Harris (who they got as part of the Robin Lopez trade). He could catch on with another team but if he does he will have to serve a five-game drug suspension to start the season.

• While earlier studies suggested there was no such thing as a shooter with a hot hand, a study using the high-tech tracking cameras going into stadiums now says there may be something to it after all.

• An update on the Jared Sullinger domestic abuse case.

• James Posey has been added as a coach to the Cavaliers D-League team.

•  Villanova associate head coach Billy Lange is joining Brett Brown and the staff of the Philadelphia 76ers. Brown has said he wants a couple of coaches on this team of young players focused simply on player development, Lange is part of that.

• Ike Diogu has a got an invite to the Knicks training camp.

• Patrick O’Bryant earned an invite to the Bobcats training camp.

• Larry Drew II got an invite to the Heat training camp.

• Darnell Jackson got an invite to attend the Pacers’ training camp.

• Heat draft pick James Ennis won the Australian league preseason MVP award. That and $4 buys you a latte at Starbucks.

    Looks like Brynn hit the Power Ball after winning a scratcher.

    I guess Kate Upton wasn’t good enough for him

    The latest trend in birth announcements is right after the parents names, there’s a list of the names of every dude the mom screwed before she screwed the dad. Very tasteful.

      Well it’s not like it was just a fling. They had a child together and were dating. She’s also pretty well known here in LA. Her brother plays for the Cleveland Browns and is having a good year.

    Ford Wilson Cameron-Griffin sounds like a cat dealership.

    • rickyspanish - Sep 23, 2013 at 9:34 PM

      I’m a dum dum, I meant car dealership.

    Does Blake lose his Kia deal for naming his kid Ford?

  7. 00maltliquor - Sep 24, 2013 at 12:21 AM

    This chick just won the baby daddy lotto! Already getting 15k a month from Matt Lienart, imagine what she’ll get from max deal Blake Griffin! Her mother must be beaming right now!

    OMG they were seen together for his birthday right? found more pics and a bio on Brynn here

  9. pfic15 - Sep 24, 2013 at 7:08 AM

    I’m a guy so I get it, but why do these dudes mess with these women? BG seems like a cool dude so hopefully theydo it the right way and stay together so the kid has a normal household.

  10. pfic15 - Sep 24, 2013 at 7:11 AM

    Well. Never mind… Read the article ..not together…..more child support on the way…this girl ain’t even cute either.

    • kb2408 - Sep 24, 2013 at 8:15 AM

      I beg to differ, my friend, I think she’s fine!

      • 1972wasalongtimeago - Sep 24, 2013 at 11:23 AM

        Love to see the type of talent pfic15 commands

    Way to go Blake! Perpetuating the “baby daddy” stereotype one child at a time. I really hope that baby doesn’t look like him! 😦

    Sounds like Brynn is making a career out of getting knocked up by guys who have no intention of marrying her. Idiot.

    • imakcds - Sep 25, 2013 at 4:26 PM

      more like cold and calculating.
      those men have lots of money, and being an athlete herself, the offspring should also be athletic.
      someone got to take care of granny when punani is used up.

    blake griffin’s face screams, ‘why wasn’t it oprah i knocked up’

    • money2long - Sep 24, 2013 at 7:54 PM
