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: Pop Chart Lab, via Deadspin. Here, for those aesthetically minded folks out there, is a giant poster featuring a wide variety of cool basketball jerseys from the last 93 years that you can buy, own, hang and use to impress your friends.

PF: Sports on Earth and numberFire. Detailing David West's importance to the Indiana Pacers, in words and numbers.

SF: Slate and The New York Times. With the NBA's annual pre-draft combine behind us, the draft lottery coming Tuesday night and the draft itself just over a month away, Josh Levin sings the praises of wingspan measurements while Scott Cacciola explains why hand size matters.

SG: Detroit Bad Boys, twice. On how Stan Van Gundy taking the reins of the Detroit Pistons could signal "a change not only in the attitude of the coaching community toward Detroit, but ultimately, players and agents as well," and five helpful charts detailing the biggest problems Van Gundy must address now that he's the man in charge.

PG: ProBasketballTalk. LaMarcus Aldridge said earlier this season that he'd like to sign a contract extension to stay with the Portland Trail Blazers for the foreseeable future. Dan Feldman offers many, many millions of reasons why it would make more sense for Aldridge to wait until next summer to do that.

6th: Blazersedge. Dane Carbaugh on what a difference a year has made for both himself and these Blazers.

7th: The Hook and TrueHoop TV. A good read and a good listen/watch on what the Mark Jackson/Steve Kerr/Joe Lacob/Golden State Warriors situation indicates about the hiring disparity between white coaches and coaches of color.

8th: The Brooklyn Game. Devin Kharpertian bids farewell to the zombified 2013-14 Brooklyn Nets.

9th: Hardwood Paroxysm and Bleacher Report. On Joe Johnson and Deron Williams, one of whom has managed to become both overpaid and underrated, while the other now seems to just be overpaid.

10th: Bullets Forever. Mike Prada advises Washington Wizards fans not to move past this season too quickly, and to spend a bit more time savoring what they just witnessed, because it could all come tumbling down again: "In 15 years, you might be watching a horrible team embarrass itself on its home court, with the crowd booing them off the stage […] and you'll wish you spent more time appreciating all of [this]."
