It's a new season, and there are many teams eager and ready to start anew. Most of these teams are putting their faith in certain players to improve upon their previous seasons.
Not all of these players are in the beginning of their careers, however.
Some teams are asking for veterans to improve after undergoing disappointing seasons in 2011-12.
Improvement from players can sometimes mean the difference between a playoff berth and a missed opportunity for fringe teams, while good teams can become great teams with just a small refinement.
This season will be no different.
