Okay, I'm digging deep into stats right now, but before the full post is done I'm going to need some help from all of you. There have been 25 different players come in an play shooting guard for the Utah Jazz since Jeff Hornacek has retired. Some of them were SGs through and through, some were combo guards, displaced point guards, or forwards pressed into action. Some stayed for a while, others left in a jiffy. Among this group of 25 we have some veterans, some mercenaries, some rookies, and some fringe players. It's a very diverse group. Even just looking at the expressed shooting guard phenotype, there were lots of variations between the inherent shooting guards and their respective genotypes.

Some where athletes, with no outside shot. Others were pure shooters who couldn't defend. A select few were big time scorers in college who could not pick up the NBA's team game. And even a few of them are still in the NBA now, and even with our team.

So please, if you can . . . rank the following players from "best" to "worst". You don't have to justify your point of view, or even clarify how you rank them or what you're ranking them by. Do your best, even if it's just the Top 10, or Bottom 5. I know 25 is a big number.

So . . . . in terms of performance in a Jazz uniform, rank them. (This is not career performance, college performance, potential, or improvement after leaving the Jazz)

The players are (in alphabetical order):

  • Alec Burks
  • Andre Owens
  • C.J. Miles
  • Calbert Cheaney
  • Derek Fisher
  • DeShawn Stevenson
  • Devin Brown
  • Gordan Giricek
  • Gordon Hayward
  • John Starks
  • Kevin Murphy
  • Kirk Snyder
  • Kyle Korver
  • Kyle Weaver
  • Matt Harpring
  • Morris Almond
  • Othyus Jeffers
  • Quincy Lewis
  • Raja Bell
  • Randy Foye
  • Ronnie Brewer
  • Ronnie Price
  • Sasha Pavlovic
  • Travis Leslie
  • and Wesley Matthews

Thanks guys and gals!
