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: Dime. Oh, yeah, that? That's just my miniature Red Bull refrigerator. No big deal. It gives me wings.
PF: SI.com, via NBA 09. After seeing this pic, I instantly clicked on the "tips from SI photographers" link.
SF: Sactown Royalty. Good read: ClipperSteve's analysis of Paul Westphal's coaching history.
SG: Hornets247. "CP3 deserved the 1st team All-NBA Award. CP3 also deserved more than 5th in the MVP voting — and both should have come at the expense of Kobe Bryant(notes)."
PG: Empty The Bench. Today's million-dollar question: Is it time to "blow up" the Dallas Mavericks?
6th: Hoops Addict. Ever wish you could go back in time and change the past? The Clippers sure do.
7th: Not A Blogger. What LeBron James(notes) means to the city of Cleveland.
8th: On The DL. Ernie Johnson on his relationship with Turner, with Barkley, with God and so much more.
9th: The Scores Report. A look at which NBA teams will have cap space this summer.
10th: Y! Sports. Sad news: "Wayman Tisdale, a three-time All-American at Oklahoma who played 12 seasons in the NBA, died after a two-year battle with cancer. He was 44."
