NBA Players with Most to Prove Down Season's Final Stretch
USA TODAY Sports
Andre Drummond has proven himself to others. Now he needs to prove to himself he can make free throws.

With just a week left in the regular season, every team's motivation is different.

The Miami Heat have been resting their stars for the playoffs, yet they still managed to secure home-court advantage throughout the playoffs. The Los Angeles Lakers are in a dog fight for their playoff lives, a battle Kobe Bryant, who scored a season-high 47 points while playing 48 minutes last night, is determined to win.

Teams like the Orlando Magic and Detroit Pistons, on the contrary, have little to play for. But some players on even bad teams still have something to prove before their seasons end.
