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: Charlotte Observer. An interesting Q&A with Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael "Mike" Jordan.
PF: The Point Forward. Rob Mahoney details Anthony Davis' impressive NBA debut.
SF: New York Times. Typical must-read stuff from Howard Beck on new Knick defectors/Nets fans.
SG: NY Mag. Will Leitch on the "Anti-D'Antoni," Knicks coach Mike Woodson.
PG: Magic Basketball. The always-mindful Noam Schiller takes on the Orlando Magic.

9th: National Post. Eric Koreen talks to Bryan Colangelo about that whole DeMar DeRozan thing.
10th: Sports Radio Interviews. Daryl Morey is understandably giddy about the great James Harden:
"I was stunned. If he could do that every night then we will be fine but that's expecting a lot. Just like a lot of these things, we do our best to forecast these things but obviously he was way better than we could've thought. Just one game, we have to keep it up, but he looks like the guy we want to build around like we thought."
