Rick Reilly is all like "whaaaaat?" (Getty Images)
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: TBJ. Apparently Rick Reilly found a satirical column about LeBron James, written by some cat named J.E. Skeets, on his Internet machine. Apparently he decided that the column was real, and not a joke. Apparently, he was wrong. This all happened, apparently, because we haven't read Rick Reilly in a very, very long time. Sorry, Rick. It's not like you read us.
PF: The Classical. Tom Scharpling takes on the NBA's shudder-inducing future. I give, Tom. I give.
SF: SB Nation. Tom Ziller expertly nails this Neil Olshey disconnect.
SG: Grantland. The great Jonathan Abrams has yet another must-read feature, big shocker, on Stephen Jackson.
PG: RealGM. Jonathan Tjarks on the odd symmetry of the San Antonio Spurs' dynasty.
6th: TrueHoop. Every NBA coach, go read Henry Abbott. And run a damned play, would ya?
7th: Celtics Hub. Paul Pierce sure is taking a lot of shots these days.
8th: The Point Forward. Zach Lowe on the ascending Oklahoma City Thunder. Typically great.
9th: SB Nation. Andrew Sharp on the ascending Oklahoma City Thunder. Typically great. Stop it, guys.
10th: Hoops Analyst. Ed Weiland (a guy you should listen to, perhaps) on the pass-first point guards in this year's draft.
