Teaching by breaking down the game

Vince Carter on why some players have a hard time learning from Larry Brown, "arguably the game's greatest teacher":

"Sometimes it's tough for a lot of the guys, because you go through the stages of being taught; and then on this level, you kind of want to fine-tune. But he wants to break down the game -- that's the way he's been. And if you haven't been around him and don't know him well, you don't understand. That's why it can be tough."
