Default Triano going to improve?

As you know everyone here would like to see some improvements in our Toronto raptors, and with that it will take time.

However Jay Triano looks like a coach that BC has faith in and thinks he will develop, I know he may finished off with a .385% season in a span of 65 games.

But let's look at the stats of some coaches in their first year:

Coach Wins/Losses Pct.
Jay Triano 25/40 .385

Gregg Popovich 17/47 .266
Mike D'Antoni 14/36 .280
Mike Woodson 13/69 .159

My point is that coaches will develop overtime, no matter how shitty they may look first, so I think that we should have some faith in Triano and try him out in the 2009/2010 season.

You can't blame him for all the losses last season.
Injuries and just plain horrible team play,and no passion are the blame.

I vote no....surprised?

But if Colangelo makes the right moves this summer and improves the depth and Iavoroni makes the right impact, i can see an improvement. I'm just hoping a .500 record and a playoff birth. Expecting more then that unless vast moves are made is unrealistic, for now.

So ultimately i would had voted wait and see what he has to work with if the option was there.

triano brings that sort of fire that mitchell didn't. mitchell would shout at the refs. but, not nearly as much as triano and he also shouts at the players and if you look closely you can almost see the steam coming out of his ears. i think that one game when he was ejected bryan knewe this is my guy, my new coach. i mean there had to be some reason for mitchell's firing 8-9 record just not buying it.

Triano was definitely sluggish at the beginning but near the end you could see his passion and determination. I'm sure he'll do much better this season

I think Triano has some good qualities, but my goodness does he need to shore up the mental toughness of this team. I've lost count as to how many times the Raptors would blow 8-10 point leads after half-time with Triano at the helm.

I am a big believer that the players play a bigger role in the winning side of things, (there are of course exceptions like Sloan and Popovich who are able to make their teams competitive on a nightly basis regardless of the roster) and Triano's inexperience along with the lack of talent on the roster really made him look worse than he really is.

well first you have to consider if we can get the players we want back onto the team
but if that works out then i'm pretty sure triano will improve in terms of record because the players really underachieved last year

Fire isn't a word that comes to mind when i think of Jay Triano.
