full article in french
The article is too long, i've only translated some part.
Dressed in the colors of the French team, Larry Brown, coach of the Charlotte Bobcats, is present in Vichy to assess the play of "les Bleus", which trying to qualify for the Euro. And if the role of the former US NT coach could lead to confusion, LB is unanimously considered humble.
Yannick Bokolo is working on his FT. A man in a blue France team tee-shirt is just explaining patiently for the right release.
"I am a teacher first and foremost," explains Larry Brown.
Larry Brown was also Olympic champion ... in 1964 and remains the only coach to have both NCAA and NBA titles, a legend, "says Vincent Collet (french coach).
"The game is better here (in Europe) and I know i'll be criticized for saying that "
In February in Charlotte, Brown "wondered how we're working," says Patrick Beesley, director of the French team. On the tone of humor, Boris Diaw said "Just come." He said "why not, I'm interested".
"Tony (Parker), Boris, Ronny (Turiaf) are having long seasons but they do not want to rest this summer," notes Larry Brown, who is "admirative".
"Alexis (Ajinca) is becoming better by coming here," he adds. I recommend this experience to all players. Joakim (Noah) does things here that he never do in Chicago."
"Vincent is a great coach .." "We share the same passion," added the American who watch every training in the stands. "But he is the coach. My role will becomes clearer as time goes.
Except that Brown will leave for the United States Sunday and does not know when he will return. "My team is about to be sold, I have a family and the season is long."
