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

* This may be one of the strangest things you will ever see on a basketball court. A coach in France tries to strip the ball away from an opposing player in the dying seconds of a tied game. And after receiving a tech, he actually protests his innocence. That’s a new one.

* Patty Mills’ towel moves show up in a San Antonio newspaper.

* This is hilarious. A Phoenix Suns fan is caught on camera nodding off during a game. I don’t blame him.

* Warriors beat man Marcus Thompson II from the Contra Costa Times says Andrew Bogut is living up to the hype.

I was gobsmacked by this line though: “But Bogut has been every bit the difference-maker the Warriors hoped for when they gave up their franchise player for him.”

Okaay.

* I highlight all his good stuff so it’s only fair I cover the other side – here’s Bogut going for a monster statue of liberty dunk only to be denied by the great man, Timmy D.

* Some amazing footage of Wilt Chamberlain.

* Robert Sacre has a Snoop Dogg tattoo on his torso.

* The NBA is getting lax on the flopping rule.

* A couple of big throw downs from Michael Beasley and Paul George.

* I’ve been bangin’ on about this for a while – the absurdity of the NBA regular season schedule – and now Henry Abbott from TrueHoop weighs in on the issue with this terrific piece.

* Two game-winning tips by Marc Gasol and Anthony Davis.

* Marc Gasol plays crazy defense with his shoe.

* A fan picks his nose and then winks to the camera.

* In case you missed it here’s footage of the fan in Cleveland – wearing a “We Miss You, LeBron” t-shirt – running onto the court during the Cavs vs. Heat game.
