Also I don't think Triano is the reason this team is bad defensively. It has some to do with Calderon and Bargnani who are the two vets and leaders of the team. Other guys see them slack in defense so others will do the same. I know its not ideal to think this, but thats what happens. Anyone who plays sports will know this. If you get a guy like D12 who is always playing defense his ways will eventually rub off on teammates and encourage guys to play better defense. I can speak first hand about this because I've played alot of sports on alot of different levels.
Triano is A reason we're not good defensively imo. As for Triano being here for a while......if things don't change next season he's toast. Four season's, if we don't show some significant improvement on defense he SHOULD be gone for sure.

BTW, Iavaroni hasn't been here for a year. I know i keep saying it but i would see if there's any chance Lawrence Frank would come over as an assistant, then replace Jay once he's canned. lol
