I'm not trying to brag, but I deal with that kind of thing all the time. I'm a smart guy, and sometimes I have to forcibly remind myself that not everyone is as quick to understand things as I am. It's just a reality of existing in a world where some people have lesser abilities.
You don't think there are great players who see the grind that coaches put themselves through & say "Eh, I really don't want to be doing that?"

One example that might come to mind is Ron Francis.(And I say "might" because I don't know the whole story with Francis).

His story sounded like a guy who didn't want the daily grind of coaching put on his plate.
