While each season can speak volumes about the future direction of a franchise, no particular season exemplifies it more for the Jazz than the 2012-13 season.
Utah has an insane amount of money coming off the books next year (approximately the gross domestic product of Vanuatu, give or take a few dollars), and this year alone will determine whether Utah will decide to let everyone walk and essentially blow up the current iteration of the team or bring back everyone possible.
While everyone from the franchise player to an end-of-the-bench guy can have a tangible effect on the entire team based on his play, certain players have much more of an impact on a team's direction than others.
Primarily, the players who have the highest ceilings and lowest floors are much more likely to swing a season for better or worse than an unspectacular but solid veteran player who has etched in stone who he is as an NBA player.
Utah fans, keep a watchful eye over the next six players, as their success or failure will have the largest impact on Utah's season.
