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

* Michael Kidd-Gilchrist with a massive dunk over Greg Monroe.

* Ball Don’t Lie’s Kelly Dwyer absolutely nails the Thomas Robinson trade. The title of his piece tells the story: “The Sacramento Kings, weirdly, send Thomas Robinson to the Houston Rockets.”

* DeAndre Jordan with a very, very bad free throw. Just so you know, he gets paid $11 million per year to play basketball.

* I’m not a fan of All-Star Weekend, but those warm-up jackets showcasing the players’ career accomplishments were mad.

* Grab a beer, find a comfy spot and have a read of this terrific ESPN article on Michael Jordan. It’s a priceless insight into the mind of the 50 year old legend and what makes him tick today. An epic piece but you won’t regret taking the time.

* So, apparently leather sweatpants are in. For some people, anyway.

* A classic Q&A with Sir Charles.

* Kobe Bryant abuses Jamal Crawford.

* An excellent feature by Pounding the Rock on Patty Mills and his charitable endeavors.

* Iso Joe with another game winner.

* A couple of ‘Harlem Shakes’ for ya – Kansas University and German club Bamberg. I’m still waiting for someone to put together a Robert Sacre Harlem Shake vid.

* Michael Jordan speaks to Ahmad Rashad in this mini doco.
