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: YouTube. Via the indispensable Ananth Pandian, here's Michael Jordan's old late-night show on Chicago's WLS, Channel Seven.
PF: Hardwood Paroxysm. Curtis Harris' must-read take on the Kings' potential sweetheart/civics-destroying deal with Virginia Beach.
SF: SLAM. Bits and pieces of Tzvi Twersky's SLAM Mag cover story on Dwyane Wade.
SG: Daily Thunder. Jeremy Lamb has been sent to the D-League, Royce Young has the reaction.
PG: NBA.com. John Schuhmann with, not a cliché, the pretenders and contenders in the NBA.
6th: Forum Blue & Gold. Breaking down the Los Angeles Lakers' crowded, talented, frontcourt.
7th: Grantland. Zach Lowe's typically must-read discussion about Golden State's vastly improved D.
8th: SB Boston. Gethin Coolbaugh discusses Rajon Rondo's maturity issues in the wake of his suspension.
9th: The Basketball Jones. Beards, huntin', Rick Adelman and fried foods — Brad Miller is our animal spirit.
10th: Puck Daddy. Longtime Los Angeles Kings and Los Angeles Clippers public address announcer David Courtney has passed away at age 54. For a look at some of his work with the Clippers, read D.J. Foster's feature on Courtney from 2011. It was very cool to note that he got to call a Stanley Cup champion last June, and we appreciate his part in making the Clippers so entertaining for those of us that started our time with NBA's League Pass during the Q-Rich and Darius Miles-heavy 2000-01 season. Rest in peace, David.
