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: The Daily Beast. Chris Bosh talks up cool ties, sweet treats, and hot summer nights.
PF: SBNation. I’m what you’d call a “clueless gamer,” but these new NBA 2K15 screenshots look pretty solid.
SF: SLAM Magazine. Adam Figman on the growth of Anthony Davis, who seems primed for (yet another) breakout year.
SG: Time Warner Cable News. The Toronto Raptors are in talks to buy a Premier Basketball League team and turn it into their D-League outfit.
PG: Denver Post. At the 2013 trade deadline, the Indiana Pacers reportedly offered Roy Hibbert to Denver for JaVale McGee, and apparently the Nuggets turned the offer down.
6th: Grantland. Beckley Mason got to shoot three-pointers with Stephen Curry, write a great feature about it, and get a free duffel bag and deodorant at the same time!
7th: Basketball Insiders. On Chandler Parsons, terrible timing, LeBron James’ looming presence, and the Houston Rockets’ plan moving forward. Because we can never get enough.
8th: Sports Illustrated. Detlef Schrempf admits that he’s “not on the same scale” as Amy Poehler, but then again nobody really is, and we still love Detlef.
9th: Heat Hoops. A fascinating (for NBA nerds like us, and you are one if you’re reading this in August) look at the Los Angeles Clippers’ salary cap “apron,” including some news about contract guarantees and injuries that you may have been unaware of.
10th: Sports Illustrated. Rob Mahoney isn’t attempting to be harsh, not in the slightest, but you won’t come away from this feature on the Brooklyn Nets thinking all that optimistically about the team’s future.
