It is said that NBA players often get bored during the season, because it is just so LONG. It's rare to see any NBA player stay locked in for a full 82 games. There are unpublished injuries, long travel schedules, crazy personal lives, and just the overwhelming potential for monotony in six straight months of playing an NBA level game every other day. Old players have to save themselves for the playoffs because physically they just can't sprint the whole season anymore. Young players sometimes try to sprint the season and end up hitting a wall around January. Players on good teams coast until the playoffs. Players on bad teams check out by the All-Star break, unless they have something to prove to earn their job for the next season (either on their team or on another). A good coach can get a bad team to play hard every night, but they rarely win much so those teams just become known as "scrappy," and we don't pay much attention.
