Exactly. The main purpose of hiring a new coach is to bring a new philosophy to the club, have the players adjust to a new system, and to develop stronger fundamentals. Triano is a nice guy, but he's not a great NBA head coach. The players continue to make the same mistakes each and every game, and many of these mistakes are correctable.
