Don't do things that take energy away from the team

Over on Hoops World, Travis Heath has a good quote from DEN coach George Karl:

"Don't do things that take energy away from the team. I call them de-energizers. Sometimes the way you say good morning in the morning can be a de-energizer. If you're going to play in June, you can't de-energize yourself. Mopiness, or being late, just little things of not remembering that we're practicing at 10:00 instead of 11:00, all those things take some energy from somebody. When you're the captain of the team and you're the best player on the team, it's best said that you should be serving us to energize us and not de-energize us."
