Default Players that peaked one season then went back to being normal the next?

Andrew Bynum averaged 19/12/2 in 2011-2012, made the all-star team and was considered the top center in the league. His knees couldn't hold up and he played a grand total of 26 games the following 2 seasons.

Many players do this in their contract seasons and end up getting overpaid over the next few seasons.

This. It's amazing what a player can do when they are hungry for that new contract.

Turkoglu after his big Toronto contract. He didn't go to back to normal, he went to scrub.

Sometimes with rookies they have that first good year then the next year teams adapt to them and they never improve. Yo, but remember that one year Devin Harris blew up and put up like 25 a night? I think he went to the allstar game then played like shit the rest of the season lol.
