What is the difference between a fast break and a slow break in basketball?

A fast break in basketball is the ability of a player or team, once they have the rebound or a steal, to move swiftly down the court and score. This is generally done when, lets say Johkim Noah, gets a rebound and sees Derrick Rose open down court and no one is in front of him, he passes Rose the ball and Rose scores, that is an example of a fast break. A slow break, on the otherhand, is the exact oposite. It is a player or team, taking their time to get the ball down court and score.
