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. Mike Prada was as good with this column as Dirk Nowitzki has been during this postseason. And this post on Dirk from Hardwood Hype was just as good.
PF: CNN. Etan Thomas uses personal experience to calmly take issue with Donald Trump's recent bunk.
SF: Alone in the Green Room. The top dunkers of 2010-11. Super fun.
SG: CelticsBlog. Just a reminder that Boston has done this before. It's done everything before.
PG: Peachtree Hoops. Where has Al Horford gone?
6th: Buzzfeed. Extreme H-O-R-S-E, brah. (Via SB Trey Kerby.)
7th: Skeptical Sports Analysis. The case for Dennis Rodman.
9th: Green Street. Danny Ainge on the state of the C's.
10th: Silver Screen and Roll. C.A. Clark wasn't kidding me when he told me there was great stuff at his site Friday. First up is a look at how luck has helped shepherd in some of the wins behind some Laker championships. Second is a look at the unsavory ways Kobe Bryant has ended some of his non-championship seasons.
