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: Dwight's Twitpic, via NBA Off-Season 2009. Dwight was sure having fun with his iPhone yesterday ...
PF: NBA FanHouse. Phil Jackson will donate proceeds of his "X" hat to American Indian College Fund.
SF: The Wages Of Wins Journal. Pondering potential first round point guards.
SG: The 700 Level. Andre Iguodala(notes) is being sued by "hip hop model" Clayanna Warthen for child support.
PG: That NBA Lottery Pick. One thing you can say about Westphal, guy played a mean game of HORSE.
6th: The Scores Report. What is the NBA Draft class of 2006 worth?
7th: Deadspin. Tim Legler likes to party and apparently sponsors some sort of team with his namesake.
8th: Friedell's Blog. Wade isn't sure how many points he'd spot President Obama if they played 1-on-1.
9th: SRI. Ron Artest(notes) talks about his buddies smoking blunts while golfing, steroids and Twitter.
10th: Silver Screen & Roll. C.A. Clark: "The Lakers don’t care what you think. They don’t care if you love them or hate them. They don’t care if you think their effort was commendable or shameful. All they care about, all they've ever cared about, is the pot (ball?) of gold at the end of the rainbow."
