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: MTO, via Lang. Rumor: R&B singer Keyshia Cole and Cavs guard Daniel Gibson(notes) are officially a couple.
PF: The Dagger. Kentucky coach John Calipari is giving away some free LeBron James(notes) MVP swag.
SF: Screen Junkies. How did "Above The Rim" make this "10 Worst Basketball Scenes in Movies" list?
SG: Ridiculous Upside. Ridiculous Scott revisits RU's NBA D-League hybrid affiliation plan.
PG: SRI. Barkley: "I like Ron Artest(notes), but I think he’s a couple sandwiches short of a happy meal."
6th: Yahoo! Video. The "Inside the NBA" crew creates an "Amazing Moment" for poor Kenny Smith.
7th: Couch. Had no idea Bobby Simmons(notes) finished the season with the NBA's fifth-best three-point %.
8th: KnickerBlogger. A LeBron championship is unlikely to affect his free agency destination.
9th: Basketball-Reference.com Blog. Is Scottie Pippen headed to the Hall of Fame next year?
10th: PaulPierce.net. Excellent news: "After months of searching, two near perfect donor matches for six year-old leukemia patient Jasmina Anema have been found." Props to Chris Wilcox(notes), Tyson Chandler(notes), Pierce and many others for bringing this search to light.
