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: Sactown Royalty. There are rumblings out west that local billionaire Ron Burkle has thrown his hat into the ring in an attempt to buy the Sacramento Kings. There are two issues that pop up, if this is true. For one, Burkle wants to keep the team in Sacramento, the city that has lovingly poured over the Kings for two decades. That's good. Secondly, the Maloof brothers enjoy the status of owning an NBA franchise, they really need a money-maker moving forward in order to manage their debts from elsewhere, and they don't want to sell and leave the NBA behind. As always, Sactown Royalty (with major assistance from the great Sam Amick) will have all the news you need.
PF: Memphis Commercial Appeal. Zach Randolph is about to sign a contract extension with the Grizz.
SF: TBJ. A cute rap about Dahntay Jones giving his shoes to a kid at Donatos, which is a fine pizza chain.
SG: NBA Playbook. Sebastian Pruiti is killing it with his playoff previews.
PG: Negative Dunkalectics. Comparing the Portland Trail Blazers to a band called the Weakerthans.
6th: Basketball Prospectus. Kevin Pelton's always-fantastic award selections.
7th: Canis Hoopus. The Timberwolves are legendarily bad.
8th: SB Nation. Nice work from Mike Prada on the role of the point guard in today's NBA.
9th: Forum Blue and Gold. A sound wishlist for the NBA playoffs.
10th: Art Garcia's Twitter. Manu Ginobili is listed as doubtful for the first game of Sunday's Grizzlies/Spurs series. Oh, boy.
