Jay Triano spoke to Steve Nash on the phone recently about what to do with his struggling young players — almost a college team competing in the NBA. Nash directed the talk away from basketball. He sums up his advice this way via email: “There is no true development without competitiveness and resilience. Without those, it’s just window dressing.” That is what Triano will focus on in teaching Booker, Marquese Chriss, Dragan Bender, Josh Jackson, and the rest: play hard, run back on defense, grasp the ground-level fundamentals of NBA help defense — or come out of the game. “It can’t be just skills,” Triano says, reconstructing his conversation with Nash. Some coaches, including Terry Stotts, Triano’s boss for four years in Portland, sometimes use cards outlining their playing rotation. Triano hasn’t gotten that far, and he’s not sure he will all season. One rule governs: compete or sit.

Phoenix rookie Josh Jackson got caught making a very strange gesture towards a heckling fan during the Suns’ 130-88 road loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday. Many people assumed he was making a trigger-pulling motion almost like he was shooting a gun. Jackson has cleared up the air however and clarified that he was not making a gun motion towards the fan. He was actually trying to flip them the bird, but he felt like he was being watched so he gave them a halfhearted version of it instead. He also doesn’t regret it, because if fans are going to heckle then they’re inviting a response.
