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: Pro Basketball Talk. For whatever reason (read: SEETHING JEALOUSY!) Carmelo Anthony hasn't been playing well with Jeremy Lin since his return from injury.
PF: TBJ. I've been replaced as the oldest guy in his early 30s, ever, by Utah's Earl Watson. Harrumph.
SF: ESPN. Henry Abbott's expertly penned explanation about why NBA teams should stop pretending everyone is Michael Jordan.
SG: Rose Don't Dance. A lovely Tumblr dedicated to Derrick Rose looking askance.
PG: Sports Radio Interviews. George Karl believes his Nuggets can win, as constructed, if they're healthy.
6th: Chicago Tribune. Rip Hamilton and C.J. Watson could be out for a while, which means Chicago will win 19 straight.
7th: Sklarbro Country. Actor Ben Schwartz opens up on all things Knicks-y in this podcast.
8th: BBallBreakdown. Do all the numbers point to another San Antonio Spurs title run?
9th: Hardwood Paroxysm. Clint Peterson with a pretty cool intro to advanced statistics.
10th: Indy Cornrows. Larry Bird on Peyton Manning: "Peyton Manning is the best professional athlete to ever play in Indianapolis, truly a one-of-a-kind player, maybe a once-in-a-lifetime player."
