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: Ball in Europe. In his first game against his ol' club, Rubio dished out 10 dimes in 21 minutes of action.
PF: Denver Stiffs. Whether or not the Nuggets compete for an NBA championship depends on Carmelo.
SF: Celtics Town. Don't be surprised if Rasheed Wallace's(notes) field goal percentage is exceptionally low.
SG: Interbasket. Are Danny Ainge, Larry Bird and Pat Riley making their NBA teams xenophobic?
PG: ESPN. From uniforms to undergarments — it's all covered in Lukas' new Uni Watch NBA preview.
6th: NBA FanHouse. Most likely to drop 50 at Madison Square Garden: Anthony Morrow(notes), err, LeBron.
7th: Basketbawful. The state of the NBA Coach of the Year award is an absolute joke.
8th: Hoops Addict. 'Sheed: "I've sort of taken the kind of role that Robert Horry(notes) had in San Antonio ..."
9th: CelticsBlog. The Celtics and Cavaliers can help restore the NBA's rivalries.
10th: SCiC. Andre Miller(notes), Mike Redd and eight other players who could be moved by the trade deadline.
