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: Butterfly (For Mothers Who Want To Spread Their Wings). Via SB Skeets, you could be sitting where Dave Chappelle is in this picture. Trying to figure out what Joumana Kidd does for a living.
PF: Columbian. Following his suspension, Andre Miller(notes) calls the NBA "soft." I call him "fuzzy."
SF: SB Nation. Yes, John Kuester, Kevin Martin(notes) draws tons of fouls. Has for years.
SG: The Basketball Jones. Trey Kerby's complete Scott Brooks Sign Language Dictionary.
PG: SLAM. Kyle Stack's enlightening interview with Walt "Clyde" Frazier.
6th: Liberty Ballers. Spencer Hawes(notes) is helping turn Philly's fortunes around.
7th: New York Times. The NBAPA have made their latest concessions. Ken Berger breaks it down.
8th: CBSSports.com. Matt Moore's interesting Game Changer feature, on Dirk Nowitzki(notes).
9th: The Hoop Doctors. This picture is nearly as cool as the shoes Dwyane Wade(notes) is wearing.
10th: ESPN Insider. This is behind the pay wall, and you guys don't like that, but I don't care. Tom Haberstroh's break down of all that has gone right with Shaquille O'Neal(notes) and the Celtics this season (as opposed to what went wrong in Cleveland last year) is a must-read.
