With #ProjectionSeason, the futuristic cousin of #RankingSeason here at the end of the 2023 NBA offseason, there is no shortage of NBA analysts doing their best to prognosticate what the order of the league in the season to come is going to look like when all is said and done.

To such an end, the folks behind the “And One Hoops” podcast tried their hand at identifying the player on each NBA team who has the most riding on him this season. In the case of the Boston Celtics in 2023-24, that player is All-NBA forward Jayson Tatum.

Breaking down each team’s representative in terms of the pressure these players face due to contract negotiations, team success or personal performance in detail to try to predict some of the finer-grained contours of the season ahead.

Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what they had to say about the St. Louis native’s campaign to come — as well as a player from each of the other 29 teams in the league.
