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: The 700 Level. Andrew Unterberger on a 76ers team that we'll all miss.
PF: The Point Forward. Good stuff on Trevor Ariza(notes). Also a nice Blazers/Mavs preview.
SF: CBSSports.com. Is Pat Riley going to win the Executive of the Year award? Jealous?
SG: The Dream Shake. Tom Martin takes on a one-note Houston columnist.
PG: Hardwood Paroxysm. Rob Mahoney leaves no stone unturned defending Russell Westbrook(notes).
6th: ESPN. Rick Reilly with a must-read (you heard me) piece on Chris Paul(notes).
7th: Indy Cornrows. Larry Bird is going to stick around. What do Pacer owners do now?
8th: The Painted Area. Typically perfect Haubsian observations.
9th: TrueHoop. "What do you think about at the line?" My personal answer? "How terrible I am at this."
10th. NBA Playbook. Why the dearly departed Nuggets couldn't get open for a game-tying trey Wednesday night.
