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: A Wolf Among Wolves. Ricky Rubio and Alexey Shved can co-exist in the Minnesota backcourt because the Allman Brothers Band, duh.
PF: The Classical. Robert Attenweiler discusses the already-fascinating and not always great Dion Waiters.
SF: The Point Forward. Why the Bulls offense is humming without Derrick Rose, even if the shots aren't falling.
SG: New York Times. Writers who know quite a bit about pro basketball talk up the surging New York Knicks.
PG: Forum Blue & Gold. Discussing Kobe Bryant's not insignificant issues with defense.

6th: Boston Globe. On Dwight Howard, possibly miscast and maybe not long for Los Angeles.
7th: SB Nation. Seth Rosenthal with his must-read weekly power rankings.
8th: The Point Forward. Rob Mahoney with a great look around the NBA, leading off with the improved Golden State Warriors.
9th: Grantland. Speaking of which, Zach Lowe interviews Stephen Curry about Golden State's turnaround.
10th: The Point Forward. Kevin Garnett is not credited with a rebound for the first time since the Clinton Administration, is prickly about it.
