We did not run 100% Triangle with Phil.

Tex always insisted that the triangle was simply a basic format, that you could go to any look out of it. The Lakers ran pick n roll from i

So i dont think the players will have trouble learning the offense. Nash has a super high basketball IQ, Kobe knows it, Pau knows it, MWP knows it, Dwight i think will have the most trouble learning it also that hes not 100% wont help.
Mike just wasnt the guy to get guys to respect him and buy into what hes teaching....also i just dont think hes a good enough coach to implement the princeton offense. If anyone can get the team to run the triangle its phil who will also tweak it to benefit nash's abilities aswell as dwights athleticism. no doubt.

I'm confident that phil would implement the tri slow enough with enough non-tri-, non-thinking offense to make for an appropriate learning curve.

I have confidence they could figure something out that will work.
Out of any coach that has been mentioned, i think hiring Phil has to be the best bet for getting Dwight & Nash that first ring, and I hope that's just what happens. I wouldn't mind Jeff Van Gundy or Macmillan either. D'antoni's coaching doesn't seem solid enough in certain ways and at key times, though as a former Suns fan back in the golden days of Stodamire and Nash I admit it certainly was fun to watch at times.
