As the NBA returns, a few will have a shot to cement their legacy or job status

The NBA is back, ladies and gentlemen! After months of old highlights and knowing the outcome of every game to happen, we will finally get the opportunity to watch games in real-time. With the league hoping to resume play July 31, these names below are on the hot seat in regards to their overall legacy.

NBA candidates with something to prove: Devin Booker

Devin Booker has been the model of consistency for the Phoenix Suns. Since he has been in the league, he has had minimal opportunities to even sniff the playoffs. The basketball gods have finally smiled upon him and are giving Booker the chance to lead the Suns into the playoffs.

This could have max contract implications and showcase his abilities to be more than just a great scorer in the NBA. If he leads the Suns to the playoffs, he could take that next step into NBA superstardom.
