Carlesimo on Bargnani/Triano

They discuss an innovative thought, occasionally allowing the guards to crash the boards and the bigs to race down the court. Carlesimo enters the room, and they relay the idea to him.

"That's what I wanted to do with [Andrea] Bargnani last year, but [former Raptors coach Jay] Triano wouldn't let me," Carlesimo says. "He said it was demeaning. At least our smalls had a chance of getting the rebound."


But what does it really tell us?

Well for one, Triano either didnít necessarily value everything Carlesimo suggested, or he was really, really careful about what he said to Andrea Bargnani. Which brings us to the next point: Either Triano was too soft and scared of offending players, or Bargnani is quite emotionally unstable and may be offended by a simple suggestion.

Bargnani also recognized our guards didn't want to rebound!

Bargs need to be coddled...even team strategy has to be that it doesn't make bargs look like absolute shit on rebounding (not that he is)
