Jay Triano: A Canadian Basketball Story

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Basketball may have been invented by a Canadian, but the game didn't take off in this country until more than a hundred years later, when the Raptors first took the court in 1995. Today, the NBA features a number of Canadian-born players, we have a strong national team, and the Raptors are heading to their first-ever NBA finals. Nam Kiwanuka talks to former Raptors coach Jay Triano about the rise of basketball in Canada, his tenure with the team, and his new memoir, "Open Book: Canadian Basketball and Me."
