Which Player on a New Team Has the Most Pressure This NBA Season? — Sports Survey of the Day
The NBA season kicks off in just under a week, on October 30, and going into this season, some familiar faces are in different uniforms. Who’s feeling the most pressure?
Almost certainly the biggest move was Dwight Howard going to the Los Angeles Lakers. That franchise will look for him, along with Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol, to bring them another championship.
Steve Nash and Jason Terry also switched teams. Nash joined Howard in L.A., which increases his shot at his first NBA title. Terry joined fellow veterans Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett on the Boston Celtics, where he will be a solid replacement for Ray Allen. Allen joined the rival Miami Heat this off-season, and you know the fans in Boston aren’t happy about that.
Other notable players on new teams are Andrew Bynum and Jeremy Lin. Bynum went from the Lakers to the Philadelphia 76ers as part of the Howard deal, while Lin signed a monster contract with the Houston Rockets.
