Hi everyone! Apparently there's been some confusion of late, which is easy to understand — as the "10-man rotation" has been a part of the Ball Don't Lie package in consistent rotation since December of 2007. It's OK. Some of you in the comment sections, based on your grammar and reading comprehension, clearly weren't born then.

This is a "link dump." You've seen things like this on "web sites" for "years and years." It's a way to point out some of the better work done by our friends and favorites from around the "world wide web," giving you a link and brief description that hopefully entices you to click on the "uniform resource locater" (highlighted in blue) in order to further enjoy the free content all the participants below have provided.

It's not an article. It's not a column. It's something to help you enjoy your day further. Kindly regard, the 10-man rotation:

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: Celtics Blog. Recounting, on 12-12-12, all the Boston Celtics to have worn the number 12.
PF: The Classical. Discussing the oddities behind "Basketball, The Musical."
SF: Orange County Register. Kevin Ding on the Lakers "bottoming out." And they have bottomed out … right?
SG: The Basketball Jones. Raymond Felton and what is probably the worst NBA miss of the season thus far.
PG: Eight Points, Nine Seconds. A space-clearing maneuver Frank Vogel is in love with might be getting in the way of the Indiana Pacers' success.

6th: SB Nation. Tom Ziller hilariously recounts the 20 best moments of the Los Angeles Lakers' awful season.
7th: Grantland. Posted without reading, because we trust his work that much, here's Jonathan Abrams' feature on Chauncey Billups.
8th: USA Today. Mike Bibby has worked out for the Memphis Grizzlies, which could be the only thing that could ruin the Memphis Grizzlies.
9th: ESPN. Discussing the various Hall of Fame candidacies of Vince Carter, Tracy McGrady, and Allen Iverson.
10th: The Point Forward. Rob Mahoney hands out some alternative NBA awards, as we hit the quarter-mark (ish) of the season.
