5) Jack introducing the concept of training camp and etc Jay saying prep started summer instead of september like most teams because of last year and new coaching staff ... Guys in for informal workouts and look great ... Going to implement things next Monday

6) Jack asking about spending time with assitant coaches outside of basketball ... Triano says its all about basketball and trying to know each other and know what the roles going to be ... use last year as learning tool and how to deal with differnet situations and all on same page ... basically the CS just chilled ...

7) Eric asking if they missed out this on last year (talking about training camp) ... Triano says no time to practice properley in the first 6 weeks after he took over ... and now he has the time to practice and drill it thsi year ...

8) Jack asking how long will it take for a new coaching staff and everybody to come on the same page? ... Triano says its the unknown and that theses guys got to know each other and develop chemistry. Biggiest issue beside defense will be chemistry and that will be the big thing for this year ... going to stay from iso's plays during practice and hold it off and do a lot of team activities and ball movement drill to help develop chemistry ... alot of team meetings this year as well

9) Good player want to be taught (eric)? Triano says its right and that what he learned dring vancouver broadcasting etc ... says Shareef wasnt challenged because coaches were afraid to come to his face because he makes money ... Says we have guys who want to be challenged and coach every day and one of Triano's philiosophy

10) Eric asking does that make your job easier with guys coming in open minded? Triano says its right and trying to change culture everywhre (practice and airplane and etc) ... Says the only 3 guys are Jose/Bargs/Bosh since they are the only ones who were with the past and the other players dont know what happened in the past and they will just see them as expectations rather then change where as JBB have to change from last year

11) Jack telling a story and asks what will they hang there hats on? What three things will be our bread and butter basically ... Triano says offense /defense and special teams jkingly ... Triano says that should be a general thing on certain focus ... Now 1st thing for the team will be Defense ... talks about best teams defensive FG% (laker, cavs, orlando, celtics, houston, denver) .. we have upgraded personal and upgrade with Marc Ivoroni because he was under Kevin Oneal who worked with Riley ... we aren't great individual defenders but Jose can get better team schemes, Wright was good and Hedo was good at schemes in Orlando and JJack as well ... Have offensive tools and have np scoring ...

12) Eric asking how to keep everybody happy how to move pieces? Triano says we are much deeper and loves the fact that he has problems with getting good players in the game unlike last year having to put bad guys and have difficulty putting guys on the benches on suit because veeryone will be challenged ... back up up challenge backup who challenge starters

13) Taking a break ...

14) Dammm 5 minute commercial break ... wtff

15) Traffic ... :-? :-? :-?

16) K after 8 minutes we are back with Triano ...

17) Triano tweet of the day: Volcano boy asks , Jay helped develop steve Nash's game and how does Jay respond? ... Triano, said he has the opportunity to coach and put him in an environment to lead our country , Steve came hurt from booed from Dallas but he was confident still ... He doesn't know if he "helped" him and Triano talks about portugal game ... Triano says that he need to get 25 pts from Steve before the game to qualify for the olympcs ... you could throw a challenge at Steve and that came from within ... Steve was a great player to start with , olympics gave him more confidence
.. talks about last game where he challenged Bosh to get 18 rebounds for 10 rbd/game ... thats what coaches have to do differnet times and different games you have to motivate those players ...

18) Jack asks about Tweeter? Triano says, NBA will come up with a policy and he doesnt participate ... Jack doesn't like it ... Triano says he like tweeting though he doesnt have an account but he sees he knows what players do and jkingly says if they play bad then he can say stop doing this xDD ... Eric says we just use it to promote yourself not tell everybody every moment of there lives ...

19) Eric asks how he would handle CV situation about tweeting? Triano says there is a fine line and he says they will have there own rules ... Triano says there are confidentiality issues but at the same time isn't that the point of interiews to get info out so wahts the big deal? Triano says, its a business and team togetherness things ...

20) Jack shifts to talk about Belinelli ... Jack salivating over Belinelli and asks how Trinao will fit him in? Triano says he is a scorer and a good passer and thats what he will do ... talks about how he was leading scorer for Italy, sees him in the 2nd unit with Wright/Evans/Rasho/JJack and he needs someone who can score ... compares him to Eddie House to put pts of the bench and keep defenses honest with hsi ability to shoot the 3 ...

21) Eric asking about Pro Scouting ... asks Triano if he scouts other teams bench and be like i can ge tsomething out of guy? Triano says yea, BC is open and he is open to BC and that if he gave BC he would listen and says CS sees more of other players because they do scouting themselves and you wonder why they arent playing and etc ... gets good feel for guys ... says BC is always ahead of us and has a lot of knowledge and is always working hard ... wheels are always turning and great environment to work in ...

22) Jack asking him about DD ... how do you bring him along with more exectation and etc? ... Triano says they discuss this everyday!!! want him playing with Bosh/Hedo/Barg because he can learn the system and intensity to play with ... don't lose game and he has qulaity 14 minutes and thats how he develop ... Says if other wing started, we might not risk going wtih DD and then he gets buried on the bench and you have the 9th pick not developing and gets him discouraged ... Says he desn't want to give it to him and DD has to prove it as well and that will him help him grow ...

23) Eric saying competition only at 1 spot as 4 other spot set? Triano says its true but bench challenging our startesr because there best defenders though crappy offensively and Triano says they have to find the best mix ...

24) Break and taking in calls after ...

25) Eric asks about Ref? ... sticky situation and etc, Triano says he got an email today that he can't discuss it at all ... Triano says he didnt get along with refs he wouldnt get along with replacement refs ... jking about players calling there own fouls ...

K now its the phone call section ... I'm going to skip dumb questions asked or well try to ...

1) Jose Calderon ... inability to create shot or penetrate, do you find JJack could challenge for the starting job? Triano says he hopes he does because Jose has to be better NBA player ... Jose controlling and lead the league in A/TO ... Jose adapted when he wanted Jose to chagne last year ... We will see 07/08 Jose more then seasona nd hopes its a great rivarily and hopes it happens ... Eric asks if JJack will play on ball and Jose off ball (usually Jose on ball and JJack off) ... Triano says he looked at princeton offense and there will be times they will use it this year

2) Andrea Bargnani how has his low post progressed?? Triano was it was an issue but he got better last year , people use to switch but hten once it changed, he posted up he punished teams ... He is better this year at it, better/stronger/quicker to the basket ... today in practice Reggie Evans was taking it to Bargnani and Triano says he hopes that will help Bargnani since Evnas is the beast down low ... Now asking about defense and rebounding (eric) ... Triano says it will be a focus but wants to get better at rebounding at the guard position ... Triano says he needs to teach guys to go learn to get the ball and says hopes Reggie Evans leads by an example and shows them ... Jack says Bosh has a nother notch under his belt and how do you him there? Triano says it comes from within and it has happened ... Bosh has really been engaged and has Bosh on his phone everyweek and so concerned about his performance ... Gained 15 lbs and didnt like being looked at the olympics so he hired a trainer ... Bosh very focus and contract year and he has to have a good year and if he has a strong year ... stats might go down but will have a bigger impact and who cares when you get more wins !!!

3) O WOW Delfino/AP/Kapono where is the 3pt shooting coming from? WOW kk this is dumb .... wow who MISSES THESE 3 guys ... wow damm ... 3pt shooting coming from Belinelli/Bargnani/Jose/Douby and etc .... Says we are going to rely on the 3 and have guys who will shoot it ...

K I think this is the end ...

Like what he's saying.

- Jack salavating over Belinelli... i always liked Jack, smart man.

- Derozan is now going to play 14MPG? Didn't he say a few weeks ago that it was going to be 16MPG?

- Reggie Evans getting into Bargnani.

- Improving the rebounding on the back end.

Best thing in there is Evans beating the shit out of Bargnani. Time to man up and fight back big Bargs. Get your nose dirty and get some rebounds.

Triano has been very straightforward since he got the job for real. I'm liking it. Love him saying that Jose has to be a better NBA player.

I don't know but every time I listen to Triano talk about the upcoming season, it kinda puts away the anxiety. The fact that he is stressing the importance of team D despite the fact that he knows, individually, the players aren't the greatest on D, is comforting. He sounds like he's REALLY on top of his game.

Yep - as long as he can translate what he has in mind to each guy individually, as well as to the team as a whole, it should be ok. And he should also have enough in the way of guys taking on leadership roles.

I always liked Sam for his honesty, but Jay seems to even go beyond that at this point, likely due to his added security, and that can really pay off for a group like this, if they all do respond as I would expect them to.

Leadership- that's one aspect I hope Hedo can bring to the team. Bosh and numero ocho, of course, will have to kick it up a notch in that department as they are the leaders and vets on the team. If they buy into the game plan, which they will, then everyone will or should follow suit.

I expect a certain amount out of guys like Jack and Evans as well. And Rasho might be more important in the locker room than he ends up being on the court.

I am sorry man but *edit* what the hell is the REAL difference between 14 and 16 MPG?

Perhaps you're not familiar with the rules here, but insulting other members will not be tolerated. - Acie

I don't know much about triano the coach, but his interviews are consistently some of the best I've heard/read (from bball coaches). He's always honest and manages to give real insight into the coaching process (and his thinking) that even veteran coaches are often afraid to do. And he seems a great guy too, there's a real down to earth feel about him.

When Triano took over as interim head coach he was horrible. But later in the season you could definitely see he wasn't going to tolerate any bullshit. Hopefully his experience with team USA will allow him to become even better.

14 -16 MPG - for most people that's about $4 per week, but I doubt that's what he meant!

Sorry - not meant as an insult, just humour.
