Default Any NBA player that just goes thru the motions.....

Who do you think are some NBA players that sort of go through the motions and are skilled enough to compete in the NBA, but don't really like playing basketball or playing in the NBA, but hey it pays a lot.

I was watching Joe Johnson play and that is what I thought of, some dude that is good enough to play but does not really love the game like Kobe, KG, Magic, etc.

For some people basketball is just a job and that fine with me, theres plenty of athletes who were given abilities who just don't really care about getting better or going hard, if someones willing to pay you, you got to take it, it beats a 5-9 job any day of the week and on top of that you get insane pay.

You don't make it to the NBA if you don't love the game. There's so much time that goes into it and all. With that said, some guys lose that flame over the years, or are good enough to just go through the motions each game. T-Mac, later years, comes to mind.. the game just came so easy to him. He was fluid as hell and could make great plays, but often just pulled up for the jumper or passed to a teammate. Even playing like that he had a great impact on a game. But it definitely looked like he was just going through the motions.

Rasheed Wallace also comes to mind. I remember reading an intverview in which he said that boxing was his favorite sport to watch and that he played basketball as a job, because he was good at it. You don't come out of retirement if you don't love/miss the game, but he wasn't all crazy about it like some other stars were.
