One of the conditions, it seems, of being a breakout player is to be a young guy who finally gets that "lightbulb" to go on -- and play like he should play. Play like a professional. Work like a professional. And prepare like a professional. It's usually never a rookie. We have a bunch of 2nd year and 3rd year players on the team though: our C4 guys (Derrick Favors, Gordon Hayward, Enes Kanter, and Alec Burks), and Jeremy Evans could be candidates for a break out year. DeMarre Carroll is Mr. Hustle and takes nothing for granted either. We also brought in a few veterans who are still trying to find their place in this league -- former lotto picks Marvin Williams and Randy Foye.
