Jay Triano, head coach of Canada's Senior Men's Basketball team, responds to your trickiest Ask JT question.

From Christoph in Montreal, Quebec:
What are the most important characteristics that a player wanting to play for you should possess?

Jay Triano:
I want players that put team above individual. Players that are willing to work hard. Players that are good people. I guess having some basketball skills would be important as well, but not more important than the first three things. If you have the first three things you will be successful for longer than your basketball career.

On the court I want people who can shoot, who can defend, who can pass. People with a positive attitude are fun to be around and make great teammates. You have to be willing to make sacrifices and fit into a team.
