5 NBA Franchise Players Who Desperately Need Fresh Starts

The past two years or so have been, let's say, interesting for franchise players in the NBA. Since the start of the summer of 2010, the league has seen no fewer than 13 of its biggest stars—LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Amar'e Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony, Deron Williams, Chris Paul, Joe Johnson, Dwight Howard, Andrew Bynum, Andre Iguodala, Steve Nash and (to a lesser extent) Monta Ellis and Andrew Bogut—change addresses in one way or another.

That trend only figures to continue in the weeks, months and years to come, as the new collective bargaining agreement takes full effect and player movement ramps up to new levels as a result. Teams around the league will be even more eager to shed salary as they look to avoid dipping into the more punitive luxury tax.

The fact that there are so many stars who seem to be wearing out their welcomes in their respective cities only figures to add to the shuffling and reshuffling of the NBA's deck of franchise-caliber faces.

Surely, these five guys could use do-overs of one kind or another.
