    What would the Jazz record be if Sloan was still HC?

    Same team, same schedule, etc. etc.


    -If you think the team would be worse off then respond in the thread with your reasons why.

    10 games better we would be 24-3 and 5 games better we would be 19-8.

    Between same and 5 games better

    I would say that there are only 3 games that Jazz lost that might be W's. Sacramento, Phoenix, Memphis.

    Now W's that might be loses had Sloan coached is harder. The Jazz offense sometimes goes stale, but is kept alive by the chucking of Mo, Marvin, Gordon and Foye. Foye and Mo arent shooting 7 threes each during a Sloan coached game so the jazz would score less, but Sloan's coaching might be enough to overcome the weak offense, thereby producing a more effiecent offense that does not rely on the 3pta. Without the 3pt shot I don't think the Jazz beat the spurs or LAL.
    Out of nowhere, the Utah Jazz are both frightening and fascinating and there is suddenly no limit to their potential. -SBNation 8 march, 2015. ***Please Mr. DOL, draft the Brazilian Wookie.***

    Sloan would have already slit his throat and been done with it! He's through fooling with these knot-head, uncoachable numbnuts!

    Sloan would have worse record as he would not use our 3 point shooters as much as Corbin does. He would not know what to to do with this team as there is not enough pick and roll capable players, not enough slashers and passing from the post is atrocious. Plus Sloan would reverse defensive philosophy back to forcing defenders to the middle instead of baseline which would result in more fouls and pts in the paint against us.

    Better question is- What would Sloan do with a guy like Favors?

    I think we would be about 5 (about = 4-6) games better.

    Some possible wins.

    I said 5 but I think that is a little more or a little less than reality in the hypothetical world.

    Even Sloan would have benched Jeffersuck like crazy for not making opposing players "earn" their points. Instead Jefferson gets away with thinking that he is too important to defend the basket.
    Cy is a Baker, he doesn't work fast food. Don't make that mistake, he doesn't like it.

    Sloan knew how to use true 3pt shooters when he had them (Hornacek). Wouldn't need the 3pt shot as much with a true vision on offense. Al would have been forced to play defense or ride the bench

    He would also start Favors which would make forcing players to the middle effective. Let's face it our defense is not better now that we are forcing the other way. In fact we are giving up more easy baskets than I ever saw under a Sloan coached team.
    Welcome aboard Snyder, Exum and Hood. Here is to hoping this season is more entertaining than the last 3.

    I think my hope was fulfilled. I watched 5X more Jazz basketball this year than any of the last 3.

    He had best 3 pts shooter in NBA Korver and still almost never run plays for him. Sloan was quoted numerous times that he does not like 3 pt shot as primary option and it should only happen as alternative when inside attack and layup is taken away by defense.

    Same. Or slightly better. The only thing I can see Sloan doing better is motivating more with his iron fist type of ruling. I dont see him doing much different with the youngs guys. In fact I could see him playing them less. Sloan wouldnt have let the bench go as ling as Corbin does. Sloan was very routine with when he made substitutions.

    Sloan would play AJ/Sap more minutes. We wouldn't shoot or guard the three.
