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.
