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: ESPN. Chris Ramsay discusses the career and private life of the late Dr. Jack Ramsay. It’s OK to give this a second read.
PF: Mavs Moneyball. Tim Cato with an at-times giddy look at the moments leading up to Vince Carter’s Game 3 game-winner against the San Antonio Spurs.
SF: Eight Points, Nine Seconds. Tim Donahue breaks down the Indiana Pacers, as they chase down ghosts from all parts of 2013 and early 2014.
SG: Truth About It. Why the Washington Wizards won’t screw this up.
PG: Blog-a-Bull. Why the Washington Wizards may not have any choice but to not screw things up, dig, as the Chicago Bulls appear to be outclassed.
6th: Grantland. Brian Phillips will help you understand why many of us love the city of Memphis so damn much.
7th: Culture Map Houston. Is Jeremy Lin being unfairly maligned for making the same mistakes that Patrick Beverley made down the stretch of Game 4? If you visit some message boards, sure.
8th: Grantland. We’re know you’re probably sick of Donald Sterling coverage at this point, but … it’s Charles Pierce. And this is good.
9th: Hardwood Paroxysm. Ian Levy argues that letting Lance Stephenson up his usage rate by about a trillion percent is Indiana’s way back to the toppermost of the poppermost. At the very least, it would be fun to watch.
10th: TrueHoop. Longtime go-to sports law reporter Lester Munson, late of the ‘Sportswriters on TV,’ points out that it might be easier than we’d assumed for the Clippers to remove Donald Sterling as team owner.
