Triano bans all smartphones & laptops

Quote:
Triano, who's making his training camp debut as head coach, has banned the use of smartphones and laptops during practice this season. A user can discreetly read an incoming message, but must leave the gym to respond. That includes reporters, who only are allowed to see a portion of practice as it is.

"I want my two hours on the floor with these players to be valued, and if you have something else to do, then don't come to our practice," Triano said. "I don't want it to be a distraction. I don't want them looking over their shoulder wondering, who could that guy possibly be talking to? I want them focused on what we're here for, I want them to feel valued and I want the people coming in to feel of value in being able to come in here.

As for the BlackBerry ban, the quick-drawing Colangelo said he'll adjust. He respects Triano's rule and the reasons behind it.

"I've got (my BlackBerry) here," he said, patting his pocket. "I guess the rule is I can check but if I need to respond, like anybody else I've got to get out.

"I'm OK with it. It's about respecting the game, it's respecting the players, respecting your teammates, respecting the coaching staff in this regard.

"It's a nice rule. If people are so busy that they need to be doing something else then do it somewhere where you can be more productive."
"
It's gotta pain BC to ditch the Crackberry.

Good stuff!

And let's be honest... BC will use the blackberry if he so chooses.... I wonder if he would?

I could see him not just to be a "on board" with the message.
I could also see him saying "fuck that I'm the GM" haha

I don't say he'd be using it in front of the rest of the team because it sets a bad example. And it isn't like a teacher doing something they're not supposed to in front of younger students, its like him doing something he isn't supposed to in front of fellow adults.

OMG! What if Danny Ferry calls to talk about a possible Marcus Banks and 1st round pick for Lebron and BC can't pick up the phone!

it's all a plot to protect bc's ass if they don't make the playoffs. he can blame the coaching staff for preventing him from making reliable medical connections to prevent injuries!

That proves he is the best coach in the NBA.

He should also start dark room team meditations like Phil Jackson.
