    Default Triano Cuts Practice Short Because of Lack of Focus

    This doesn't bode well already. Should we chalk it up to players being a little rusty and trying to clean off the off-season cobwebs or lack of maturity with all these young guys?

    Courtesy of Paul Jones.

    Triano: we cut it short today to do some conditioning because guys minds were wandering
    Either way, Triano's sounds alot tougher this season already:

    Is there anything u did last year ur not gonna do this year? Triano; Yeah...not give guys training camp off

    Lack of organizational leadership & team structure.

    After hearing about Miami practice nothing but defense in both of their practice sessions yesterday & Boston going through a grueling 3 hour morning workout one can see that TO is headed straight to the Lottery abyss with Jay in charge via his svengali BC.

    Seems like the players may be tuning Jay's voice out from jump street...fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.

    Btw- TO doesn't even have enough training camp bodies as all NBA teams are carrying at least 20 players into training camp in order to help ensure that players don't get over-worked and that drills, sets can be run properly in case of camp injuries and the like.

    Jay aka MistaDoblina in full e-f-f-e-c-t!!!!

    Four added to roster

    The Lakers signed four players to fill out their training camp roster. They inked guards Trey Johnson and Anthony Roberson and centers Andrew Naymick and Russell Hicks, none of whom are expected to make the roster for the start of the regular season. Training camp starts Sunday morning. There are 18 names on the roster, although there are only 17 healthy bodies since Andrew Bynum is sidelined after having offseason knee surgery.
    Last time I counted 18 was less than 20 and 17 even less than 18.

    So I guess 17 must be less than 20.

    Just saying

    Hey, I'm not infallible.lol I will rephrase that and say almost all NBA teams have 20 players in training camp.

    I did a quick glance over all the NBA training camp rosters and thought that I counted at least 20 players- including injured players, on each roster. I thought DJMbenga was still on their roster- still would have only given LA 19 camp players.

    But I believe, if I'm not mistaken, that TO was the only team to cut their day 1 training camp short because of a "lack of focus" from players. Btw- Jack was the last player off of the court.

    seriously man, your antics are getting a bit too tiring.

    i think you really need to come up with some new gimmicks, i mean we all understand how youre trying to get everybody's attention around here through your raptors bashing and you just want to get the ire of everybody by being the odd man out, but getting a bit too pathetic now.....

    Unfortunately for most of us, this clown sirchilly continues to waste space as well as our time on ridiculous, nonsensical, moronic ramblings. What makes it worse is that this loser isn't even a supporter of our team. If only this idiot would just go away and waste another teams forum space and the time of its members but sadly that won't be the case. Perhaps this loser will get a job, a girlfriend or a productive hobby some day soon and stop wasting our time but I doubt this clown is capable of achieving any of those life affirming accomplishments.

    My opinions are just that- nothing more, nothing less. If you wish to believe all the BC PR spins and propaganda in relation to the Raptor's- so be it. Me, myself, I tend to see through BC's worded Bull Chit in relation to actual reality.

    Don't worry, be happy......

    Jump to conclusions, much?

    For the guy who supposedly tries to look at the Raptors objectively (your sig), your failure to do so is somewhat ironic.

    The Raptors cutting practice short because guys minds were apparently wondering means nothing more than just that, as far as we know. We could assume all sorts of things and make up reasons, but since we're not sitting around a beauty shop, there's no real point in that, is there? One person could read something positive into it and another person could read something negative into it, depending on your bias. An unbiased person would look at what they did in their first practice and hear that it was cut short and withhold judgment because there's simply not enough evidence.

    I'm going to predict that quite a number of posters here are going to jump to their own conclusions.

    My sig says I'm not a fan aka fanatic but a follower- nothing more nothing less. Plus this is a public Raptor's basketball forum and I will express my opinion whether folks agree with me or not -recognize game, or remain mentally lame- as long as I please.

    Fyi- Jay aka MistaDoblina cutting short the very 1st #!?*%#@!# practice is a sign of things to come- mark my words...........or not.lol

    You guys all took this as Triano being soft on them. The worst part of training camp for any professional team is probably "conditioning".

    I would definitely rather be doing a defensive positioning drill than some wind sprints

    good for jay at least hes trying i can deffinately see that he might of lost some of his voice in the locker room but hes right if he can get these kids to stay focused nd compete for 48 mins then hes done his job.

    what happend to JJ though, first day as then "leader" and practice gets cut short hope this isnt a trend for the season cause then were really screwed.

    Looks like all that bonding that JJ and the Young Gunz did leading up to camp has started to really pay off (sarcasm)...Yaa they really came in focused and ready, either that or they were still thinking about all the fun they had at paintball and shitty argo/leaf games. If JJ thinks he's gonna be the leader he needs to stop making stupid ignorant comments in public and get his "boys" in line and focused on getting to work and not reminiscing about all the fun they had bonding before camp...

    I could be wrong here, but after watching the vid of the interview I read it as Triano decided to end the teaching/drills and switch to running/conditioning...

    No, I think you're right on. Running laps, sprints, suicides etc is always a punishment. Who wants to run when you could be ballin?

    Exactly. Remember high school ball? You and your boys start joking around. Coach gets pissed, blows whistle and just yells 'baseline'. You know you screwed up. 'Conditioning' never meant just getting into shape- thats what game pace drills were for.

    When I was 13 or 14, the drill was layups until we get 10 in a row. We'd get to 8, blow it. 9, blow it. On and on. So much f'ing pressure. Coach losing his mind. Whistle goes. BASELINE. We do a bunch of suicides, then back to the layup drill. STILL couldn't get 10. More suicides. More layups. More suicides. Took 45 minutes to get 10 in a row. Worst practice ever.
