The NBA's 10 Laziest Players

The concept of the lazy NBA player is a pretty absurd one. One would think that since they are making millions of dollars to play basketball and are the best players on the planet that every member of the league would put in a consistent, disciplined effort night-in and night-out.

While that is true for most players in the association, it is certainly not true for all. For every Kenneth Faried or Tyson Chandler who makes his living on putting in a superhuman effort despite a limited skill set, there is an Andray Blatche who seems incapable of staying fit for a whole season, let alone living up to his potential.

Laziness can come in a myriad of forms in the NBA. It can be everything from struggling to stay in shape during the regular season to failing to develop as a player to even something as simple as settling for difficult shots instead of being aggressive offensively.

Obviously, the 10 players listed here are top-notch athletes if looked at in a global sense, but when compared to their peers in the league, they collectively earn the title of laziest players in the NBA.
