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: SLAM. Adam Figman takes a look at the lost career of Darius Miles, who had every reason to succeed in the NBA, and just about as many reasons to fail.
PF: HoopsAnalyst. Looking like a fine and dandy set of small forwards are going to be available in the 2014 NBA draft.
SF: The Diss. Jacob Greenberg discusses the revolving state of “great men” and how the league’s followers appreciates them.
SG: Hardwood Paroxysm. On Boris Diaw, jumping from a player cut by the worst team in NBA history to a potential free agent payday this summer.
PG: Wall St. Journal. The state of the NBA’s shooting guard position is so bad in the modern era that we didn’t even bother to place this link at the “SG” slot.
6th: New York Times. You might have already read this, but if not please do delve into a firsthand account of the machinations Shelly Sterling’s lawyers had to work through in order to come to a Clippers agreement with Steve Ballmer.
7th: Grantland. Lance Stephenson’s upcoming free agency courtship is complicated, but he’s not without options.
8th: Sports Illustrated. On the NBA’s ongoing approach in dealing with Donald Sterling and his weasel lawyers.
9th: Sports Illustrated. Discussing Gregg Popovich’s ongoing sideline interview performances, which we’re still not sure if we should like or not.
10th: SB Nation. Ricky O’Donnell talks up the resurgence of Rashard Lewis, yet another Miami Heat role player making a difference in the winter of his career.
