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: SI.com. SI puts together a cool gallery of NBA players returning to work on media day.
PF: TBJ. Trey Kerby culls some of his favorites from the smile-and-click sessions.
SF: YouTube. The last quarter of Game 7 of the 2008 EC Semis, with LBJ and Pierce, just 'cause.
SG: NBA.com. StatsCube is back! John Schuhmann breaks down some recent free-agent moves.
PG: Silver Screen and Roll. "Lamar Odom is a one-man Shakespearean tragedy."
6th: The Point Forward. Look out, kids, the Pacers are improving.
7th: SB Nation. David Stern, lookin' out for the worst owner ever. Great.
8th: BBallBreakdown. Fantastic video documentation of the Michael Jordan vs. Kobe Bryant debate.
9th: Hardwood Paroxysm. Beckley Mason on David Stern, the discerning owner.
10th: Sports Radio Interviews. Steve Kerr: It's such a crock that [Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert] would even [complain about the Chris Paul trade]. That guy is a billionaire, they have been way over the cap while they had LeBron, way over the tax. He's still upset that he lost LeBron and he needs to get over it. LeBron gave that franchise the best seven years they have ever had. He was a free agent and he decided to leave. Nobody likes the way LeBron left, even he apologized for it the other night on TV but the fact is there is a thing called free agency and if a superstar player wants to leave when they are agents, they can leave. That's their right."
