That being said, the important thing is bouncing back. Based off this list, plenty of players have a lot of work to do in that regard.
Maybe it was because of a cluttered schedule due to a lockout, but the NBA seemed to have a rather high rate of devastating injuries last year. Throw in the fact that there were seemingly so many disgruntled players in the league, and you have a story-filled season.
While not every player who had a bad 2011-12 campaign is due to bounce back, many notable stars are bound to have impact years in order to erase past woes.
Take a look, and feel free to tell me your own thoughts.
