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. Joakim Noah says the Heat are "Hollywood as hell, but they're a very good team." Love you, Joakim, but you mispronounced "great."
PF: TBJ. Jason Terry can't forget 2006. Neither can we, bub. Neither can we.
SF: At the Hive. Hey, remember when the Hornets upset the Lakers to start the playoffs 42 years ago?
SG: Red 94. Why the Rockets' dismissal of Rick Adelman was the needed move.
PG: SB Nation Chicago. Why the pull up jumper is not Derrick Rose's version of "his shot."
6th: Negative Dunkalectics. A good, nuanced piece on television coverage of the NBA.
7th: Hoopinion. It's a week old, but a fine review of Hawks GM Rick Sund.
8th: The Painted Area. Breaking down Mike Brown's hiring in Los Angeles.
9th: NBA Playbook. What the Bulls should have run, late.
10th: The Point Forward. Hopefully the last word on the LeBron/Jordan mess from Scottie Pippen.
