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: Interbasket. A list of the NBA's Top 30 international scorers. That's right; foreign born, baby.
PF: Dallas Basketball. Six videos of raw-and-real behind-the-scenes Maverick Media Day footage.
SF: WFNY. I had no idea the Cavs made Shaq a cheat sheet to help remember his offensive duties.
SG: State Farm. LeBron drains half-court shot, and then, as promised, buys hundreds of kids new shoes.
PG: SMW. Deals with cable and satellite providers has pushed NBA TV's distribution to 45 million homes.
6th: Empty The Bench. The NBA's Most Depressing Players of 2009 list is mildly depressing.
7th: Salt City Hoops. Mad Dog Mark Madsen(notes) has joined the D-League Utah Flash.
8th: SLAM. It's not official yet, but it looks like the Hawks have some new alternate unis on the way.
9th: SI.com. What players, teams and coaches will shape the season ahead? Mark Montieth knows.
10th: From Deep. The NBA's failed foray into Vancouver can be, at the very least, partially attributed to the lack of star power coming through the draft at that time.
