Corbin has coached the Jazz for 189 games. The Jazz are 88-101 in those games (including 1-12 this season).

1-12 is the worst start in UTAH Jazz history (in New Orleans they had a worse start of 1-16 in their inaugural season)

ESPN has a fun chart where teams can compare themselves to past NBA teams that finished with the worst records in NBA history.  Since the Jazz are off their awful start, fans can compare the Jazz with those teams.  This is how the Jazz compare through 13 games with the worst NBA teams in history and how they did through 13 games. You can check back each game to see how we compare.

If this trend continues the Jazz would finish 6-76.

Have your preseason predictions changed for the Jazz after the first 13 games?

When John Stockton was Richard Jefferson's age it was the 1995-1996 season. During the regular season there were only four games where Stockton played 41+ minutes. Three of the four games went into overtime.

John Stockton is a HOFer, the all-time leader in assists and steals, a two-time olympic gold medal winner and voted one of the 50 greatest players of all-time.

Currently Richard Jefferson is not #1 in any statistical category for the Jazz this season and is not a former all star.

In the 1994-1995 the Utah Jazz won 60 games and averaged 27.5 apg. So far in the 2013-2014 the Jazz have won one game and have averaged 18.4 apg. Here is a chart showing wins and assists per game from the 1994-1995 season until now.
