When he had Marion in the starting lineup they got some good results in spite of Bargnani. Jose has improved a great deal, particularly with respect to positioning and team defense. during the stretch where they won last season, it was largely due to improvements on the defensive end.
I have problems with Triano's approach. I think a fast-paced game hurts a team that has weak links defensively. And no matter what is taught - there are going to be weak links on this roster with regard to team defense. But to just make blanket statements about every aspect of his coaching tenure is a little brutal. And the canadian thing? Get off it already. Where do you see anyone in this thread giving a fuck about him being canadian?
