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: Rob Delaney's Tumblr. The comedian explains March Madness for those of us that don't usually follow.
PF: SB Nation. Tom Ziller absolutely destroys the pathetic Portland Trail Blazers.
SF: Orange County Register. The Timberwolves, who need a point guard, apparently didn't need one bad enough to trade for Derek Fisher.
SG: The Classical. Michael Katz's mighty fine NBA Notebook. Funny stuff, cats and kittens.
PG: Off the Dribble. Kobe Bryant's near-MVP stats.
6th: GQ. Nick Collison is so full of nicknames.
7th: TrueHoop. A smart breakdown from Kevin Arnovitz of the East's most influential lineups.
8th: LA Daily News. Nick Young gave up some potential cash in order to go home to Los Angeles.
9th: Ted's Take. The Wizards owner seems pretty happy about trading Young and JaVale McGee.
10th: Newark Star-Ledger. Dave D'Alessandro: "This is still the only league that makes its biggest news when absolutely nothing happens, which is a recurring hype-over-substance lesson that most of us never seem to tire from or even anticipate." The column gets even better from there.
