all signs point to Triano being a really nice guy, probably awesome friend, and just all-around awesome dude to hang out with a drink a brew with.
but this is a coaching position... the best coaches arent your friend... they are your coach - someone to fear, someone who teaches, someone who can bring the pain if you mess up.
Triano doesnt look like he has a mean bone in his body... he doesnt seem like he can really and truly get mad at a player and hold his players accountable.
while he'll probably be an amazing head office guy, he isnt NBA coach material. he's too much of a nice guy.
