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: Atlanta Journal-Con. Break out the short-shorts! Mark Price has joined the Hawks as a shooting consultant.
PF: Pickaxe and Roll. Should Denver fans even want the Nuggets to make the 2009 NBA Playoffs?
SF: KSB. If you had to construct your ideal 12-man team of current NBA players, would you pick Greg Oden?
SG: The Hoop Doctors, via Ballhype. Six NBA hairstyles that defined a player's image.
PG: TrueHoop. Henry Abbott spends an entire day with NBA referees and his notebook. Great stuff.
6th: Dallas Basketball. "The Art Of The Extension" ... and how the Mavericks must get it right with Jason Kidd.
7th: SbB. Photos of Jessica Alba and Jenny Craig Baron Davis frolicking on a beach in Cabo last weekend.
8th: FirstCuts. Michael Beasley has landed a deal with adidas, and I couldn't care less.
9th: Le Basketbawl. "Marbury is owed $21.9 million. He should be paid $21.9 million, it's just that simple."
10th: RandBall. Kevin Love or O.J. Mayo, Mr. Klosterman? "This is actually pretty close. I think Love has the potential to be better, but only if he’s the third option on a very good team (and that will never happen in Minnesota). Mayo is more complex. He’ll either be awesome or useless. There is something strange about his attitude; he seems detached in a way I cannot define. He might end up being a version of Vernon Maxwell who passes well, or a [redacted] sociopath."
