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

* Steph Curry’s one-legged three pointer. Wow!

* Two wicked dunks – Iman Shumpert and Kevin Durant.

* Gregg Popovich and sideline interviews are the best (1 and 2).

* Joe Ingles arrives for the Euroleague Final Four.

* LeBron James put on a passing clinic in Game 2 against the Bulls.

* SB Nation - ‘Derrick Rose and the Bulls’ history of letting players break themselves’. Spot on.

* Spike Lee videobombs Reggie Miller.

* David Stern tries the slick back.

* Z-Bo celebrates his ejection in Game 6 of the Clippers series. Love it!

* Steph Curry signed a four-year, $44 million extension with the Warriors last offseason. Whoops.

* Game winners – Kevin Durant and Manu Ginobili.

* A superbly written piece on the soulless Brooklyn Nets.

* In my Playoff Diary entry earlier in the week I said that big men still play a critical role in deciding the outcome of playoff basketball, and Grantland’s Zach Lowe agrees. One of his best lines: “A big guy who can actually play both ends of the floor at a B-plus level is the most valuable non-superstar commodity in the league.”
