The 10-man rotation, starring Tex Winter

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: Chicago Tribune. Not only will Tex Winter be able to attend his Hall of Fame ceremony later this summer, but Jerry Krause and Phil Jackson will be in attendance.
PF: Deadspin. Luke O'Brien's must-read on Dirk Nowitzki.
SF: ShamSports. Few people, if any, know the Chicago Bulls better than Mark Deeks.
SG: The Point Forward. The Celtics have a big hole in the middle.
PG: SB Nation. LeBron James fell and fell hard in the Finals, but overall his playoff work was darn good.
6th: The Good Point. 'Celebrating the 1988-99 Dallas Mavericks.'
7th: The Painted Area. The bit on Dwane Casey midway through this column is fantastic.
8th: Dime. NBA prospect Xavier Silas on looking sharp.
9th: Heat Index. Kevin Arnovitz on some very intriguing Miami Heat what-if's.
10th: SB Nation. Jon Bois with a typically-hilarious take on the pickup basketball season to-be.
