Unless you're going to do something about it, stop using "lack of energy" as an excuse.


I'm so sick of this mysterious variable that seems to not only be the reason the Bulls lose, but that every team loses.  In a sport where everything is quantifiable via a meticulously logged wealth of statistical data, the elephant in the room is always "a lack of energy.'  When a team loses - especially when the Bulls lose - 99% of the time it's because there was a "lack of energy."

Well here's my beef.  Nobody ever calls the coach out on this!  It's like their "get out of jail free" card.  Lost in a blowout?  It was a "lack of energy."  Lost in a close game?  "Lack of energy early on."  As soon as the excuse is given reporters and fans nod their head.  "Yeah, it did kind of seem like that.  Okay, you're right." 

And yet something like 30-40 games a year are explained away through this ridiculous excuse!

If energy affects the NBA arena that much, then why the hell isn't someone doing something about it???  Why aren't they studying when it happens, why it happens, what leads to it, why it leads to it?  Because it doesn't only happen on the end of a back to back.  It happens with 5 days off (as it did against Orlando). If someone could solve this seemingly mystical "random" problem, they'd probably be able to win 10-15 more games a year. 

Can we finally figure this damn thing out?  Cause I'm tired of coaches being able to use it as an excuse!
