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: SB Nation. Contrary to popular slant, is the Oklahoma City Thunder's time running out?
PF: Gentlemen's Quarterly: Shoals sez, 'Let These NBA Finals Speak For Themselves.'
SF: NBA Playbook. Mario Chalmers is going to be very important, 'ere. Perhaps not "most important," though.
SG: Off the Dribble. We might be about to be reminded how brilliant Chris Bosh is.
PG: FOX 59. Eric Gordon is looking like the prettiest girl at the ball, starting on July 1st.

6th: Forum Blue and Gold. Discussing Andrew Bynum and the three-pronged post attack.
7th: New York Times. Fantastic look at where the Heat and Thunder tend to hit their shots.
8th: NBA.com. John Schuhmann stats on the Finals are the best stats.
9th: Negative Dunkalectics. Taking on LeBron James' legacy, in a way you'll want to read.
10th: CHARGED.fm. We are always charged to hear our man Dan Devine learn us about hoops.
