The 10-man rotation, starring Brandon Roy's return



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: Off the Dribble. Getting, rightfully, very worried about Brandon Roy's(notes) return to Portland.
PF: Hang Time Blog. Listen to myself, Lang Whitaker, and Sekou Smith read the tea leaves.
SF: Silver Screen and Roll. He's not the best Laker, but Pau Gasol(notes) is the most important Laker.
SG: Rufus on Fire. Sadly, more people attend Bobcats games than watch them locally.
PG: TBJ. Blake Griffin(notes) found something!
6th: Piston Powered. Fun read about a fan attending her first Pistons game.
7th: ESPN Dallas. Longtime Mavs color man Bob Ortegal is parting ways with Dallas. Unfortunate.
8th: SB Nation. Great piece by Tom Ziller (who else?) on Donnie Walsh's not-so-knockout time in NYC.
9th: Salt City Hoops. Carlos Boozer(notes) is back in Salt Lake City, tonight.
10th: Hoopspeak. John Wooden, and the Culture of Ought.
