The 10-man rotation, starring the 2011 NBA Finals

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 New York Times. Jonathan Abrams on the fine work the endlessly tailored Erik Spoelstra has done this year. And here's a great Howard Beck piece on Mark Cuban.
PF: NBA Playbook. Sebastian Pruiti on the Heat's pick-and-roll defense. On the other end? Dallas' zone.
SF: HoopsAnalyst. Harlan Schreiber's NBA Finals preview.
SG: TrueHoop. Kevin Arnovitz details his move down to Miami to cover the Heat.
PG: The Two Man Game. Rob Mahoney's "Waiting For the World to End."
6th: The Basketball Jones. Skeets and Tas' Finals preview that I just realized I used the same picture from.
7th: SB Nation. Tom Ziller is pretty sure the NBA will get better ratings this year than they did in 2006.
8th: SB Nation. Andrew Sharp with 100 tongue-in-cheek reasons to hate the Heat.
9th: Off the Dribble. Zach Lowe on Dirk and LeBron's respective legacies.
10th: Eye on Basketball. Benjamin Golliver breaks Tuesday night's all-important Game 1 down.
