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: Hardwood Paroxysm. Curtis Harris on the ups and downs of Walt Bellamy's career.
PF: Ted's Take. The Washington Wizards are apparently OK with The Wave. Of course they are.
SF: The Basketball Jones. Swell guy, that Chris Kaman. Available for trade, coincidentally.
SG: CBS Sports. Blake Griffin gets popped by Dominic McGuire, but stays on to finish the round.
PG: Sports Media Watch. Your 2012 NBA playoffs schedule. Yes.
6th: The Classical. "The Importance of Being Ricky."
7th: Gametime at the Garden of Good and Evil. Why the Knicks need "strategery."
8th: ESPN. Lakers coaches would like the Lakers player to stop talking about the bad job they're doing.
9th: Hoopsanalyst. The always-must read "Transactions" column.
10th: NBA.com. Steve Aschburner: "Now it's all on hold -- the highlights, maybe the excitement, possibly the winning. NBA fans in Minnesota had to wait 2 1/2 years for Ricky Rubio. Waiting six to nine months is going to feel even longer, though, because now they know what they've got." Sigh.
