Hoops Rumors Community Shootaround 9/6/15

Earlier today, we learned Jared Sullinger, David Lee and James Young are the players on the Celtics who have the most riding on this season, according to A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com.

All three make a lot of sense because Sullinger will be a restricted free agent if he does not get an extension, Lee is on a new team after losing his starting job last season with the Warriors and Young is a entering an important season in terms of his growth.

Those players are not alone in the league. From Wesley Matthews to Reggie Jackson, there are so many other players with something to prove this season because of large contracts, pending free agency, age and many other factors.

Thus, our topic of the day: Who are some players with the most to prove this season and why?

Please share your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below. We look forward to what you have to say.

    How about Roy Hibbert? It’s a contract year for him. Last time out, he signed a near-max deal. He probably would have gotten the max two years ago, when he looked like perhaps the best defensive center in the game. He has a chance to recoup a lot of his lost value with the Lakers this year.

    Rajon Rondo, for obvious reasons. I think JaVale McGee as well, as if he doesn’t pan out he could become another lost case like Michael Beasley. Deron Williams has a lot to prove but I don’t think there’s much pressure on him no b one seems to care. Jarrett Jack wants to prove himself a starter and I think he could pull it off. And finally, Kobe. I know it sounds funny but with age and injuries combined with his ego, he’s gonna have to show he can contribute at least a bit of what his con r act is worth. Same wit d wade.

      I thought about Kobe, too. I think in his mind, at least, he has everything to prove. I don’t think he wants to go out as mere a shadow of the player he once was. He wants to show he can still get it done.
