Default Up and comimg star with the most to prove this year?

Who do you think it is?
For me it has to be john wall

So many comparisons were made about him being a better derrick rose and so far i havent seen it!

I think he lacks work ethic but hey i could be wrong.


What about u guys?

I agree with you about John Wall. I think it's plausible to say the Wizards may move in a different direction if he fails to improve this year. I also think Anthony Davis needs to have a above average year. Lotta hype surrounding this kid. Don't think it was a good move from him to play on the Olympic team this year.

I think it was great for his development, playing against some of the worlds greatest players, and being around NBA players etc..

Up and coming star is Kyrie. He's a prisoner of is own success last season.

Howevery, Dwight's got the most to prove. He's in LA with the media and the great centers of the past to live up to, proven winners around him making it pretty much championship or bust for him. This season will show if Dwight crumbles under the pressure or rises above it. It will show what kind of player dude is.

Eric Gordon just needs to stay healthy and he'll prove a lot.

Tyreke Evans for me personally, being such a 6'6 PG and after becoming the 4th player in NBA history to average at least 20-5-5 in a rookie year i always had high expectations.... this will be the deciding year for him to prove whether he is anywhere close to as good as those other 3 guys were or at least better than what he was his rookie year.... that he simply aint anymore than simply a 20-5-5 player and that season was his best season of his career statistically (well, he decreased in numbers since then)...

Roy Hibbert. he was an allstar last year and now looks to be the man in Indy now they know Granger cant be the one to lead them. His play dropped off in the Heat series when he was the one who had a big matchup advantage against the centerless Heat. So he has to be the one who has the most to prove.

One could argue for Bynum as well.

...ah, this guy again...

Can you please also troll away an excuse to how 16 extra more regular season games for everybody would turned the tides for Lebron/Miami last playoffs or anybody else (where all played full/regular playoff games and where Miami didnt even have homecourt advantage against 2-3 teams and where Bosh/Wade were injured/playing injured)? Miami/Lebron do not get into the playoffs or something?

82 >>> 66 simple common sense

Many things can happen in those 16 games.. LeBron can suffer a career ending injury.. Bosh can be eaten by a Lion in the zoo.. Wade can suffer a SDS for listening to Bieber for too long.. Who knows? All these are possibilities..

I think there is a lot of pressure on Tyreke Evans. Someone mentioned the victim of his own success line, and this definitely applies to 'Reke, especially after his somewhat disappointing last couple of seasons. Really hope he can stay healthy first and foremost. It's supposed to be 'his' team, and there was no doubt about that in his rookie year.

Honestly though? I'm not excited about the prospect of Aaron Brooks and Tyreke in the backcourt together. Hope they can work well together, if Brooks is a willing passer.
