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: Denver Stiffs. Jeffrey Morton with a fantastic look at how spectacularly then-Denver Nuggets coach/GM Bernie Bickerstaff screwed up his last year with the Nuggies, and how well former Nuggets point guard (and current Golden State opposing coach) Mark Jackson fared in hitting Antonio McDyess for lob after lob, and LaPhonso Ellis for the spot-up three-pointer.
PF: The Classical. A look at the upcoming ‘In the Paint Boston’ basketball-themed art exhibit, which is set to open April 26 in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
SF: Peachtree Hoops. On Larry Drew’s pointless and Larry Brown-esque benching of Al Horford in Game 1 of the Hawks’ first round series against Indiana.
SG: The Washington Post. It’s been out for a few days, but Kent Babb’s sad and fascinating portrayal of Allen Iverson’s post-NBA life is a must-read.
PG: Wall St. Journal. Chris Herring details how Jason Kidd’s quick hands are dealing with the onset of age.

6th: The Point Forward. Ben Golliver tries to figure out why the hell NBA teams want everyone in their arena to wear the same-colored t-shirt.
7th: Grantland. The staff takes on the incredibly entertaining first two days of the NBA’s postseason.
8th: The Point Forward. The Houston Rockets’ new playoff goal? Don’t get swept by the Oklahoma City Thunder.
9th: SB Nation. When even the severely lacking ABC/ESPN halftime crew know what ails the Lakers, then you know something has become terribly obvious.
10th: Roundball Mining Company. New to the game when it comes to Denver Nuggets rookie shooting guard Evan Fournier? This is your one-stop shop to catch up. Great work from Joel Rush, here.
