Because trying hard just puts you in playoff cannon fodder, 1st round purgatory for a decade.
I'm all for guys going hard on the court - but I'm absolutely against pulling a Washington and abandoning a rebuild halfway through just to sign guys like Okafor and Ariza to get the honor of being swept by Miami.
Washington just did a horrid job of developing their young talent. McGee, Blatche, and Young are all quality youth but considered headcases due to poor coaching/management during the early stages of their careers
