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: eBay Motors, via The Dream Shake. Tracy McGrady is selling his baby blue Mercedes for just $150k.
PF: NBA FanHouse. Amare Stoudemire begins the now customary "vote for me" All-Star campaign.
SF: MJS, via Dime/TH. Are the Bucks seriously considering retiring Glenn Robinson's No. 13 jersey?
SG: Thunder Rumblings. Scott Brooks regularly uses text messages to encourage his players to bring it.
PG: ClipperBlog.com. Baron Davis is in one awful shooting slump right now.
6th: TalkHoops.net. Why doesn't Duncan get any love from the fans? Is it because of the wizard tattoo?
7th: Deadspin. Celtics sign Usain Bolt; Kendrick Perkins celebrates with body wash and a mini-towel.
8th: ACBTV. Check out the assist from Spanish sensation Ricky Rubio at the 1:20 mark. (Thx, Andreas.)
9th: The 700 Level. Enrico is giving away two pairs of Elton Brand's signature Converse kicks. Go!
10th: Forum Blue and Gold. Kurt: "The problems with the Lakers right now are best solved internally, not externally. To put it simply, this is a championship roster, a deep roster loaded with talent at every position. The problem is not the makeup of the team. The problem with this team is mental — they are not playing hard every night, not playing smart for four quarters."
