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: Yahoo! Sports: Because we're a blog, we can call it a "Bolshevik bombshell." The Nets have pulled out of the race to grab Carmelo Anthony(notes), at owner Mikhail Prokorov's request.
PF: HoopsAnalyst. The always intriguing HoopsAnalyst transaction report.
SF: TBJ. Sebasitian Pruiti's must-read savvy/shabby breakdowns.
SG: Cavs the Blog. Really, really bad news about how awful the Cavs are. I agree, on Starting Blocks TV.
PG: Off the Dribble. Mark Deeks, from ShamSports.com, expertly details the level of parity in the NBA.
6th: Off the Dribble. More good ish from the Gray Lady, this time on Derrick Rose's(notes) improve defense.
7th: Nerd Numbers. Blake Griffin(notes) is the biz, fo'show, but don't forget about Landry Fields(notes).
8th: Playboy. A technically SFW (but perhaps not the best idea) interview with Lamar Odom(notes).
9th: SB Nation. A very cool look at home court advantage from Jon Bois.
10th: USA Today. Alonzo Mourning(notes) is helping to mentor the leading scorer in women's college basketball. Not because she's a dominant center or defensive firebrand, but because she also suffers from Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosi, as Alonzo does.
