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: Old Spice Saves the World. Not sure if this Dikembe Mutombo video game is the best thing in the world or the third-best thing in the world, but it is a thing in the world that Dikembe Mutombo is trying to save. If you are at work, music will play when you click the link, heads-up.
PF: SB Nation. A year later, the 2011 NBA lockout stands as an economy-draining waste of time.
SF: NBA.com. The Charlotte Bobcats could match and surpass their 2011-12 win totals this weekend.
SG: The Brooklyn Game. The Nets experiment, after 10 games. Fine read. Hurry back Joe Johnson.
PG: Everything and Nothing. 'George Karl Has Never Been a Good Coach.' OK.
6th: TrueHoop. Kevin Arnovitz on the Los Angeles Clippers' cheery mood.
7th: SB Nation. Paul Flannery with a great look on the glacially-improving Indiana Pacers.
8th: Heat Index. Tom Haberstroh's fantastic feature on the beyond-admirable Udonis Haslem.
9th: Pro Basketball Talk. Kendrick Perkins wants to guard Rajon Rondo. Rajon wants that, too.
10th: The Basketball Jones. Kobe Bryant is calling the side-parted Steve Nash "Gatsby," which I definitely waaaay better than "Disick." Yes, I had to look that last name up.
