"(It's) running more with continuity more so than calling plays," Theus said of the triangle. "I just think that allowing these guys to be as athletic as they are, to learn to play together and to grow as a team, you have to give them the freedom to do that.

"The triangle … (and) all of the intricacies of that offense are very difficult to learn because there are 100 reads. It's about reads, and it's going to take some time to get good at. Those who run that type of system will tell you that once you get it, they just play. And that's what I'm trying to get, is to give them a chance to just play."

Let him. You need an extremely good coach and the right players to run the triangle. Not to mention that learning the triangle takes quite a long time and isn't something they will just pick up right away.

Interesting. No coach out there right now uses the Triangle. Well some coaches have it some Triangle sets running in their offensive system. Besides Phil, Bill Cartwright and Tim Floyd used the Triangle when they both had their Head Coaching job. Kings have good young talent. Now Phil doesn't have to worry about signing young players who have no Triangle experience. Lakers can recruit one of the Kings players when their contract is up haha.

Unfortunately for the triangle to work player intelligence is key.

Sacramento (especially as long as Brad Miller remains there sapping smarts from everyone within a 10 foot radius) might have some trouble mustering that.

Triangle, square, rhombus - no offense is going to keep them from a cozy little last place divisional finish and another batch of ping-pong balls in their future.

Enjoy!

They'll still suck. I don't know if they'll be able to execute it right away, but they're going to have to learn a lot and even if they do learn it, I don't think it'll be enough to get to the playoffs.

well 1st year with a complex offense, not having the correct type of players to fit that offense, and a coach that hasnt ran the offense before makes for an exciting season for the kings

Not going to make a difference if you can't execute it at the level you need to. I could go out and coach a junior high basketball team and say, "We run the triangle offense", and it could look more like the bermuda triangle than anything.

GL with that, but I think Theus should've stuck to that show "Hangtime" on TNBC.

the coach isn't even calling it the triangle, like he's embarrassed...i think he's calling it "strong"

Isn't it a boring and difficult thing to learn too? Are the players ready for this? :clap:
