Players are often admired for running around at 100% for 80 mins, pointing and shouting a lot. You need that and it's going to keep your team competitive but generally it's not going to win you many games when it gets to the pointy end of the season when everyone is going 100%.
Players have different playing styles, skill sets and abilities and lambasting one very excellent player for not being more like another very excellent player is a bit of a pointless exercise imo. Maybe Latrell would be better if he went 100% all of the time but he probably wouldn't. Trying to turn a player into someone else rarely works.
