Here are 5 players who have a lot to prove this campaign.

Russell Westbrook came to the Lakers as a reinforcement and will have to be the team's main playmaker

The Lakers made a big bet on Russell Westbrook, who will not only become the third Big Three piece of the team, but will have to assume the responsibility of being the main builder of the game.

Zach LaVine will have to take a quality leap as the leader of some Bulls that added pieces to reinforce the squad

For years, LaVine commanded a bulls without great figures on his roster, but after the effort made by management, he now has two stars by his side and much more to prove as the leader of the team.

James Harden will have to take more responsibility in the absence of Kyrie Irving during the season

The absence of Kyrie Irving throughout the season will impact the Nets game, and one of the main ones in charge of supplying the responsibility will be “La Barba”, who is Kevin Durant’s main offensive support.

After all the novel around its continuity, Ben Simmons will continue in the Philadelphia 76ers for the start of the season

Simmons starred in one of the novels of the offseason when requesting his exit from the 76ers, however, the team not finding an ideal offer, the 25-year-old will continue in the franchise. He will have to reconcile himself with his game and take the leap in quality that they so much expect from him.

Kyle Lowry will have to take a very active role in building the Miami Heat's game this season.

Lowry was one of the luxury reinforcements that the Heat added with the aim of fighting as candidates in the Eastern Conference. In his role as a veteran point guard, he will have the duty to take his team to another level, after a campaign in which they evidenced game-building problems.
