Larry Brown is one of the few guys who successfully coached both college and pro basketball: the Denver Nuggets, UCLA and the New York Knicks. For starters:
- He’s old-school: stubborn, passionate and tough on know-it-alls.
- He refuses to adjust to his players’ whims.
- He misses nothing on every possession, with a perfectionist’s eye for detail.
- Brown calls his style coaching, not criticism. When players do something wrong, he points out why and how they can do better. He reminds them to listen to his message, not his tone.
Most players seem to get it.
“We’d get tired of hearing it if he didn’t know what he was talking about,” says Knicks guard Jamal Crawford.
Despite a messy exit from the Charlotte (N.C.) Bobcats last year, Brown is the only coach to win both an NCAA and an NBA championship.
