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.

SF: The Basketball Jones. On Scott Brooks' fancy handles.
SG: Indy Cornrows. Tom Lewis details the Pacers' dodgy upcoming schedule.
PG: SLC Dunk. Happy 50th birthday, John Stockton.
6th: ESPN. Derek Fisher is getting paid a whole lot of money to play in Oklahoma City.
7th: WEEI. 'Greg Steimsma march to NBA legitimacy.'
8th: Forum Blue and Gold. Lakers, still full of fail at the bottom.
9th: Sports Illustrated. Sam Amick details Jimmer Fredette's slow NBA start.
10th: Truth About It. The toughest opponent for Wizards rookie is, you guessed it, Frank Stallone Carlos Boozer.
