My answers:

1. Collier - wrong. Thought Cochran, Conklin, Robinson, Drevo, etc. would give Collier the nod here. 

2. Collier - wrong.

3. Hoiberg - correct. Seems like the other three coaches were often near the bottom of the conference/country in assists per made field goals. 

4. Nee - correct. We had some big, athletic dudes in the late 80's and 90's. 

5. Sadler - wrong.

I actually got them all right though to me #4 was the hardest. #3 and #5 seemed the easiest but I look at those number a lot.

It was surprising to me that Miles wasn't dead last in assist to TO ratio because of his dribble drive offense but his teams didn't turn it over much either.

I was spending some time looking over past season STATS, and these were notable to me. 

 

I really didn't expect Doc's teams to be the most efficient 3-Point shooters.  My general feeling about his teams were heavy on the defense.

 

I was NOT surprised that Danny Nee's teams were good rebounders.  But to be clearly ahead of all other coaches, and to do so over a span of 14 seasons.... that impressed me.

 

I also didn't think we had been playing relatively clean lately (fewest fouls per minute) under Hoiberg.  Maybe it's WHEN the fouls have been happening that makes the last two seasons feel worse.

 

I also was unable to find a STAT where Collier's teams could hang their hats.  That kind of jives with my general feeling about Collier...  they just didn't EXCEL at anything.

 

 

Hope everyone enjoyed (or was surprised) at these!

This is a stat where Hoiberg coached teams have shined in the past.  This year was pretty good but not nearly as good as year 1. Not sure if our style led to giving up more FTs or if it was our players. Walker and Andre were pretty hacky.
