Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points.

• Kendrick Perkins is convinced that the only place Kevin Garnett will play next season is Boston.

• A judge has thrown out Cuttino Mobley’s lawsuit claiming the New York Knicks forced him to retire after they discovered a life-threatening heart condition.

• Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol co-own a thoroughbred race horse that came in second by a nose over the weekend.

A fantastic interview with Christian Laettner, including about his Dream Team experience.

• Likely top-3 pick Michael Kidd-Gilchrist tweaked his back during his workout for the Bobcats Monday, but it is not considered serious enough to cause him to miss future workouts for other teams.

• UConn center and draft enigma Andre Drummond said he has dropped 22 pounds since the end of his college years as he prepped for the NBA Draft. You can take that one of two ways: Either he is serious about the draft and getting himself together, or you can ask why wasn’t he motivated in college and what happens when he gets a good payday?

• Perry Jones III says he is a more confident and ready player now than he was at Baylor.

• Austin Rivers talks about preparing for the NBA Draft, and says he’s confident not cocky.

• Sacramento’s Tyreke Evans thinks he should have the ball in his hands more. Stunning, I know.

• Celtics guard Avery Bradley is soon to have his second shoulder surgery. He should be ready to go when the season starts.

• The Celtics have reached kind of a hybrid agreement to have the Maine Red Claws as their affiliate. By the way, Maine Red Claws is easily my favorite D-League team name.

• Czech guard Tomas Satoransky — who impressed our own Brett Pollakoff at adidas EuroCamp — will remain in the 2012 NBA Draft.

• Disgraced NBA referee Tim Donaghy won his lawsuit against the publisher of his book.
