BC is covering his missed gambles. It happens, it's how it works. I like him still.

Colangelo has his own issues, but Triano was definately one of them. He definately did seem like a push over in all his interviews. You can see it in his interviews that he never felt like he's in control. Even the classic quote "What the fuck you gonna do" screams push over. He's the coach, the leader, figure something out.

I think sometimes coaches need to scream and rave at these kids. You've got a bunch of <25 yr old millionaires in white vegas. How else are you gonna get these kid's attention?
