NBA Predictions: 10 Players Ready for a Breakout Season in 2010-11

When it comes to sports, fans most idolize those who have already proven themselves as perennial All-Stars and future Hall of Famers. They contain the talent and expertise that is needed to play the game and play it well at the same time.

Some other players not so much.

Other players either need to deal with constant injuries that never let them get off the ground, can't make the transition from the college to the professional level, or just plain don't have the talent to compete at the same level as those who have already proven themselves as elite players.

It's not to say that they aren't good enough to be in the NBA, but a number of players fail to live up to the expectations that they are expected to play at.

However, a number of these players that have not yet performed up to expectations could soon be due for a breakout season that could come as soon as next year. These particular players however are young talents that are now set to make the transition from average to near-elite.

Whether they have been given the opportunity for more minutes, recovering from injuries, or are in a new situation suited to their style play, these 10 players are due for a breakout season and All-Star caliber seasons from here on out. They've obviously been listening to plenty of Jim Morrison as well to get themselves into the right state of mind.
