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 more than Seth MacFarlane likes doing cutaways in Family Guy…

LeBron James helped design a $50,000 luxury watch. Because he can. The watch has his signature  printed in blue on the sapphire in the back of the watch. I’m not making that up.

• By the way, you can get officially licensed LeBron James or Kobe Bryant tattoos. Why you would is beyond me, but you can.

• Here is a great story about Mark Jackson and some of the Warriors going to the famed San Quentin prison to play ball against the inmates.

Pau Gasol says again he’d like to stay with the Lakers. It’s possible, but I wouldn’t bet on it.

• New coach Brad Stevens says his plan with the Celtics is to defend well and run. When you find a coach that doesn’t say his teams will defend and play up tempo, let me know.

Jason Collins has not been picked up by an NBA team, Marc Stein at ESPN took a look at why (it’s mostly basketball reasons) and his chances of landing a spot when the season starts.

• Greg Oden went through his first NBA practice in four years this week. Here is the 529,486 story about how the Heat are going to take it slow with his recovery.

• Here is O.J. Mayo talking about how the 11th grade version of him decided to challenge Michael Jordan at Jordan’s camp.

• The trend of stashing away draft picks is growing.

Kevin Durant is selling his Oklahoma City house and moving closer to downtown. His old home was not NBA state of the art as it lacked a shark tank (Kobe Bryant and Gilbert Arenas each had one).

• Add Rudy Gay to the long list of guys who said they added 20 pounds of muscle over the summer.

• The Hawks have no timetable for Lou Williams to recover from knee issues, and they are not going to rush him.

• Dallas rookie Shane Larkin is not participating in training camp and has no timetable to do so following ankle surgery this summer.

• At Hawks media day, new coach Mike Budenholzer dodged questions about the DUI he got over the summer.

• In a fantastic bit of news, The Basketball Jones team from SCORE has changed teams — they are now called The Starters and will have a regular show on NBA TV. Their podcast is must listen.

    Piguet sells a Michael Schumacher watch that can go for $100,000 depending. And an Ahnold watch for 47k. Outrageous and disgusting. I’m morally outraged. I’ll get over it though.
