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: elevee.com, via D.C. Sports Bog. Butler, Korver and Odom; coming to a catwalk near you soon.
PF: Arsenalist. Should Raptor fans be worrying about Jason Kapono's defense? (A: Not if it looks like this.)
SF: Hornets 24/7. Ryan: "The Jamaal Magloire that plays today isn't effective because he doesn't care."
SG: CelticsBlog. NBA fall (TV) preview, with the C's as Heroes, NYK as Gossip Girl, and the Pistons as LOST.
PG: Blog a Bull. Interesting poll: Should Derrick Rose be the Bulls opening night starter?
6th: The Mothering Hut. Brand new 1976 ABA Slam Dunk contest t-shirt from the good folks at 'Nutzz.
7th: NetsDaily. Why this is news still, I have no idea, but Vince will consider Europe at the end of the year.
8th: Ridiculous Upside. Make a pot of coffee, pick-up the phone and meet the ABA.
9th: FirstCuts. Goodbye Reebok; Baron Davis will wear Li Ning shoes next season.
10th: Wolves News, via Empty The Bench. Al Jefferson: "[I'm] trying to be a well-rounded player. I know I can go out and get 20 and 10, but this year I want to be more of a leader — a better leader. Plus, I want to be a better defensive player, and that’s been a main focus this (offseason). I know I can score and rebound, but now we have some help with scoring in Mike Miller and rebounding with Kevin Love, so this year I want to lead this team and try to get to the playoffs."
