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

* D-Wade and LeBron chillin’ at the beach.

* Nerlens Noel, the Kentucky ‘big man’ projected to be the first pick in the draft, weighed in at only 206 lbs at the draft combine in Chicago. (For comparison, Deron Williams weighs 209 lbs). Err, that’s a problem.

* I’m not exactly sure what year this is (possibly 2008/09) but some fascinating footage has emerged showing LeBron James and Chris Paul preaching to a group of top college players, two of those being Steph Curry and James Harden.

* Shaq and Birdman are besties.

* Alonzo Mourning: “I’m gonna tell you what Scottie [Pippen] said. Scottie said that LeBron would kick MJ’s ass.” Wow!

* Check out Jarrett Jack’s emotional post game interview after their Game 6 loss to San Antonio.

* Roy Hibbert’s epic block on Carmelo Anthony.

* Where players get drafted can mean the difference between success or failure.

* LeBron’s game-winner against the Pacers in Game 1.

* A great insight into what it’s like to work for an NBA team. Answer – not great.

* Quincy Pondexter throws one down.

* Dwyane Wade grants a high schooler’s prom wish. Good choice, D-Wade.

* The outlook for the Chicago Bulls.
