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.

Tyreke is very mindboggling to me, its ridicilous how he has been only going DOWN in almost every facit of the game since his rookie year... I dont know what it is, he was somewhat injured sometimes but its not like he had ACL or something... no but work ethic / mindset / will / goals could be something to do with it...

Melo will have the most pressure from the media and public eye this season, NY will be on his ass.

Lin, after getting that huge contract, has to prove 20 games are no fluke.

And Lastly, Bynum, has to show that he can be the man of his own team.

Bynum.

He wanted to be the man, now he is the man. I want to see how he can handle it.

I agree about Wall as well.

Jeff Green. He could be the difference maker in Boston this year. He looked pretty good yesterday.

Wade needs to prove to all these doubters that he's not done.

Agreed. And I hope he does, as he always does (see 2009)

John Wall - He now has decent enough talent around him to make the Wizards not a complete joke, but he has to work on his jumper. He needs to cut down on the TO's, but considering how much he passes, it's alrite.
Kyrie Irving - Can he live up to this ridiculous hype train going on? Will he redeem the city of Cleveland post-LeBron
Andrew Bynum - Can he lead a team or lead the league in threes?

This is a very underrated injury imo. You can play through the pain, but after about 10 minutes of running it feels like someone is sticking a knife in your foot. Maybe the reason it doesn't get respect as a legitimate injury is because not everyone gets it, where as with an ankle sprain most people have had one and know what it's like to have one.

Michael Bealsey

OJ Mayo
..................Marvin Williams.

High expectations for these guys coming into the league, underachieving thus far. All getting a change in environment and/or opportunities to prove themselves coming season. We will see.

Tyreke Evans went from Rookie of the Year Franchise Centerpiece to being at times rumored to be on his way out of town. This year Tyreke has to prove that he can flourish while playing Demarcus Cousins, and that he is worthy of getting paid a huge second contract.
