Last year, the Utah Jazz experienced a season that they want to forget. Losing their coach, Jerry Sloan, and All-Star point guard Deron Williams somewhat unexpectedly really uprooted a team that has been stuck in their ways for many years.

Many different things could happen to this team. Their young players could fold under the pressure or flourish in the spotlight. Their new coach could struggle, or he could bring a fresh new look that is needed.
