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: Team Coco. "The armless panda will attempt an alley-oop. Which will fail."
PF: Eight Points, Nine Seconds. What Hall of Fame voters can do with their ballots ...
SF: Sports Radio Interviews. Phil Jackson on fighting the "mood" that makes you want to quit.
SG: Hardwood Hype. Is Chris Paul's(notes) hubris killing the Hornets?
PG: The Painted Area. Talking Tim Donaghy with Jimmy Battista. You guys know this is going on, right?
6th: TrueHoop. The Celtics are after Anthony Parker(notes), which is fine. The Bulls are too, which is not.
7th: SLAM. Kevin Johnson has long been full of perspective. And hops.
8th: NBA coaches, coaching through the age of Foghat and pooka shells.
9th: National Post. Bruce Arthur's very good take on the NBA's chances in Vancouver.
10th: Basketball Prospectus. Here's hoping the Jazz discover how to rebound over the All-Star break.

We'll be here throughout the break, postin' away at BDL. So stay tuned, and stay smooth.
