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: Chicago Mag. This oral history behind Chicago's first NBA championship is as fantastic as you'd guess.
PF: Beyond the Arc. Chris Herrington's top 10 moments of the Memphis Grizzlies' season.
SF: Off the Dribble. John Amaechi with his take on Kobe Bryant's recent misstep.
SG: USA Today. I'd be interested to see if Laker fans plan on lobbing f-bombs at Kobe Bryant as they did at me on Wednesday and Thursday, now that they know he agrees with me.
PG: WarriorsWorld. Golden State fans welcome their new soon-to-be GM.
6th: Newsday. Will Jared Jeffries guard Rajon Rondo this weekend?
7th: Arizona Republic. Steve Nash, as always, is Phoenix's last hope. Great column.
8th: SBN. Great piece on the ridiculousness of Stern hiring Clay Bennett to oversee team movement.
9th: Negative Dunkalectics. Comparing the Mavericks to Hot Cross because of course.
10th: The Onion. Derrick Rose "may also be the league's most improved player indicating that he has potential mediocrity he could fall back into."
