I don't know if its that or if some players just don't know how to use that type of data and infuse that into their game. One of the things I've learned in my experience is that people often ignore information - even if its highly relevant and valuable - if they don't understand it. Once you work with them to understand it and its value, most will jump at the chance to make themselves better at what they do.
That's where the coaches have to come in and make that type of data a part of their game plan - but if even they struggle to apply that data, then you run into an issue where a front office is data-infused whereas a coaching staff is not. There needs to be symmetry - at least with some of the coaches, if not all of them - in how data is compiled and utilized to best inform their players of what it takes to win.
