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: Basketball Prospectus. A fantastic NCAA primer for NBA fans like me who don't have a clue as to what's about to start on Thursday. Kevin Pelton always has a clue. More clues than most, read this post.
PF: NBA.com. Some damning post-trade numbers for the New York Knicks.
SF: PistonPowered. Gathering several Pistons scribes discuss Rodney Stuckey's future.
SG: Red 94. If the Rockets have any postseason chance, they're going to have to knock off big teams.
PG: Off the Dribble. Nate McMillan, and his ridiculously versatile Portland Trail Blazers.
6th: Chicago Tribune. Former Bulls assistant Johnny Bach loves these new Chicago Dobermans.
7th: Silver Screen and Roll. The super-important, all-around great Andrew Bynum.
8th: CSNNE. Delonte West will never be at peak form in 2010-11.
9th: GrantHill.com. Hill's unedited response to Jalen Rose. Still no curse words. Dammit.
10th: The Basketball Jones. Samardo Samuels has more than just a very cool name.
