A weekly wrap of the things you should know in basketball.

* Sports Illustrated’s Zach Lowe takes issue with the notion that Andrew Bogut is ‘injury-prone’.

* J.R. Smith’s sister gets into ANOTHER brawl in China. You must be proud Mr. and Mrs. Smith. By the way, Smitty dropped 60 in a recent game.

* ‘Whats Doin’ golden boy Dirk Nowitzki is at it again, this time showing off his impressive commentary skills.

* Nate Drexler from Magic Basketball wants to detonate the entire Orlando Magic team. I don’t blame him.

* TrueHoop’s Henry Abbott explores how Greg Popovich is ahead of the curve in terms of managing his players.
