my sentiment as well - triano is a really good technician and had a decent record with the young guys, but he really lacks in motivational skills.

he did ok with the talent he had, but I don't think anybody think he overachieved or anything like that.

that being said, I think Colangelo will discover soon that a coach with a pedigree will be hard to entice to come here and we'll have to take a back seat to all the other teams looking for coaches. Until Indiana and GSW make their choices, nobody (with options) will come here imo.

I also hope that this is not a signal that colangelo wants to win now, he'd better understand that we need at least one more high quality draft pick before we can start thinking winning.
