A player is lazy if they are not working to be an all-around player.
That includes getting stronger, better conditioned. ability to play in contact (play pickup games where fouls are never called), working at least an hour a day on ball handing by yourself, in shooting drills do not mainly shoot 3's but work on various depths and while open and with runners at you.
Diebs is a great example of a player who worked very hard to get better in areas beyond shooting, and at same time became a better 3-point shooter as his career progressed at OSU. Some of that improvement came by working on shooting 3's under pressure and not mostly 3 point shot attempts at casual speed.
Here is Dieb's College stats. Even as a Frosh he was putting up some numbers in FTM (43), Assists (45), Steals (26), etc.. .
