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

* Dwight Howard took out a full page ad in an Orlando paper to thank the city and it’s fans - “Words cannot express the love that I have for Orlando” was his best line. This guy has no idea. I’d imagine that “Rack off” was probably the general sentiment from Orlando fans in response to it.

* Jeremy Lin and David Lee go shrimp fishing in Taiwan…..in a skanky indoor pool.

* Check out this footage of the NBA’s 1972 one-on-one tournament. It will probably never happen but that would be an awesome addition to All-Star weekend, instead of the assortment of other garbage that we’re subjected to (ex. rookie/sophomore game, skills challenge etc.).

* Deron Williams takes on a couple of kids at a local court in Brooklyn.

* Grantland with a fascinating mini documentary featuring Royce White on draft day.

* Rajon Rondo autographs a baby.

* Houston Rockets’ coach Kevin McHale has some interesting things to say about his team and basketball today. Here’s part 1 and 2.

* Amar’e Stoudemire reveals the Knicks new jerseys. (UPDATE: Here’s some more pics)

* Iman Shumpert attends an 80s party.

* Hoopspeak puts the legacy of Allen Iverson under the microscope.

* Kevin Durant ballin’ and dunking in Hong Kong. Question: why can’t these guys come here?

* Tony Parker drills a halfcourt shot and wins some kid a watch.
