Anyone?

I like this guy. I hope he becomes successful as the Raptors head coach. Also having a Canadian coach in the NBA is priceless IMO.

I enjoy seeing a coach that is actually capable of taking questions from the media without acting like an ass.

He really seems like a players' coach.

It's boring.

I prefer someone with a sense of humour.

Lol... I'm not saying that he wasn't entertaining... he just rubbed me the wrong way because he was such an asshole to the reporters 90% of the time.... The guys were just doing their jobs. No need to be a prick. Part of being a head coach in the NBA is dealing with the media. You either handle it professionally or don't take the job.

This may end up like the Will Solomon bandwagon from earlier this year. I prefer to stay off of it.

I like Triano... for this season...

We aren't getting a new coach until the end of the season... and who knows... if Triano wins a playoff round... he may stay.

Reporters are assholes 100% of the time.

Anyway, as much as I like Triano as assistant coach, I don't think he is a head coach material. I don't care about players coach or Canadian coach, all I want is to have a coach who can push Raptors to the next level. I want a real coach, not an experimental coach.

If a dude like Sam Mitchell can make the COY, then anyone can do it. Go Triano!

give him some time.
every coach has to start somewhere.
i'm sure phil jackson and greg popovich were experimental coaches when they first started in the NBA.

sure they will, in the all star game in 2011 ...

mitchell had the most horrible interview I ever heard. There is not one single piece of usefull information (basketball related) I got from any of his interviews.
I don't know about triano, since I didn't hear him yet, but surely nobody can be worse than sam in that respect.

As for the "bandwagon", it's been 6 days since he was hired, I hardly think that's time enough for him to implement his system, so any comment on him (good or bad) is way too premature.
