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: Basketball-Reference.com Blog. Nobody in the history of basketball has been a unanimous MVP pick.
PF: Suns TV. NBA All-Stars and celebrities debate who is the real Superman: Shaq or Dwight Howard.
SF: Court Surfing. Holly MacKenzie draws up her 2010 Slam Dunk dream participants.
SG: InsideHoops. An interview with one of the league's top superstars, Sean Marks of the Hornets.
PG: SLAM. Is Durant the anti-Battier? Can +/- expose great players' flaws or do our eyes deceive us?
6th: SMW. The NBA continues to make its case as one of sports' stronger television attractions.
7th: Blazer's Edge. Kevin Pelton busts out an "Age Adjusted Defensive Efficiency" stat. Try and keep up.
8th: C's Hub. KG is Hercules, a divinely forged specimen without physical comparison among mortals.
9th: On The Wolves. Wolves owner Glen Taylor trims '09-10 season-ticket prices, offers 'No-Risk' pledge.
10th: Hardwood Paroxysm. Matt Moore: "[Wade] won't clear 50 wins. But he's brought this team from the ashes, answered his critics, has them in line for the playoffs, some quality wins, and his numbers are off the charts. Points, rebounds, assists, steals, and even blocks. He’s done more with less, and he’s doing it by setting crowds on fire and leading a young team. I’m starting to believe Dwyane Wade may really be the 2008-2009 MVP."
