    Yeah this coming from Smitch means very little. The guy has no credibility, at least in my book.

    HUP HOLLAND HUP!

    It's funny, I don't see this as throwing Triano under the bus... other than Carlisimo's sour grapes at not being listened to.

    Look closer at what he wanted to implement... Run Bargs out on a fast break on missed shots because he couldn't/didn't want to rebound, and Triano said no.

    So, Triano wanted to try and make Bargs rebound and people still hate on him for it :P

    lol, exactly. Triano was actually doing what fans wanted from a coach. He wanted Bargs to rebound.

    I remember reading Carlesimo's gripe just after he was fired.

    None of this is more than sour grapes and excuse making.

    I think that it is to a certain extent but it's also partially the truth. Though playing bargnani at sf didn't help matters. They really couldn't figure out what they wanted him to do and it just created no position or consistency for him on the floor. Plus, what do you focus on improving if you're playing sf,pf and c in the course of a season.

    you realy think smitch could get through to bargs if he was given the green light ? no coach is ever gonna make him change imo.

    also smitch is a ****ing idiot. we saw how his tough love routine worked with carter and alston.

    Except Jalen Rose is a complete moron. Sam Mitchell, Vince Carter and everybody else in the room who wasn't blind as a ****ing bat said that they were just playing around.

    its safe to say we tried everything with bargs... we all know at this point that in order for him to be a decent player he needs an elite C him who is a strong rebounder and defender. noah, howard, chandler etc.

    smitch is one to talk though. doesnt seem like much has changed with him either. he was a whiny little girl then, and he is a bitter whiny little girl now it seems.

    who knows. there is no doubt in my mind he'd be a better player today if Mitchell doesn't get canned in favor of Triano. i'm sure at the time Bargnani thought it was great though.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    Right...

    Except the player he supposedly fought with said that too. So that makes a ton of sense.
