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: NYT, via Nets Daily. Brook Lopez(notes) thinks the Nets' reversible jersey idea is "a very cool promotion."
PF: Sports Radio Interviews. Shaq says there's no friction between him and Steve Nash(notes).
SF: Hardwood Paroxysm. Two reasons that explain why Michael Jordan had the perfect career trajectory.
SG: Barkley's Mouth. Aldridge over Durantula on the "All-Under 25" team? Come again?
PG: The Human Highlight Blog. Rehashing the dark era in Atlanta Hawks' uniforms.
6th: The Baseline. "On the surface, Stephen Jackson's(notes) trade demand makes sense for both sides."
7th: Raptors Republic. Seven "plays" the Raptors should run.
8th: Seriously Though. This NBA rookie Polaroid set would make a really cool screensaver.
9th: Lakers Blog. Pau Gasol's(notes) injured finger gets a thumbs up.
10th: ESPN. Um, call me crazy, but I really don't see Amar'e Stoudemire(notes) ending up in Orlando.
