A look around the league and the web that covers it. It's also important to note that the rotation order and starting nods aren't always listed in order of importance. That's for you, dear reader, to figure out.
C: SB Nation. Blake Griffin(notes) is the NBA's most watchable player. I grok.
PF: Silver Screen and Roll. OK, now you get upset, Phil Jackson?
SF: Salt City Hoops. Andrei Kirilenko(notes) is an albatross, and I miss 2004.
SG: HoopsAnalyst. A fun look at Ray Allen(notes) and his place amongst ... immortals!
PG: Off the Dribble. Mark Deeks (Sham from ShamSports.com) on Mike Conley's(notes) not-so-bad deal.
6th: New York Times. Harvey Araton on the high school play of Mike D'Antoni Jr.
7th: FanHouse. Egypt-born Alaa Abdelnaby is quite happy with the recent news out of Cairo.
8th: Pro Basketball Talk. Could Zach Randolph(notes) really be a member of the Magic next month?
9th: TBJ. Holly MacKenzie with a smart and nuanced take on the abject mess that is Sacramento.
10th: AP. Jon Krawczynski is bored at Wolves games, and we love the results: "The Wolves announced a crowd of 11,227, but far fewer were actually in attendance. In the second quarter, seven fans were counted sitting in sections 218-224 of the upper level. Those sections wrap the back of the building from one corner to the other behind one basket."
