The shot he made with his back to the basket, without even looking, just flicking it up there... i thought it was luck, he would never do that again... but then he made it again... and again... and again...

If I had to make a basketball team or player watch a single player to learn how to shoot jumpers, it would be Hornacek.

Set, off the dribble, contested, running off screens... This guy was so ****ing money. He also just kept getting better and better as his career went on.

Good to see someone bring up a very good player from the past like Jeff Hornacek. There have been so many good, really good...not great players that are forgotten. Hornacek was a very good shooter.

I didn't remember him being as athletic.

I remember I made a comment a while back on how he made tough shots and certain fanboys were pissed off.

He'd be an all star in this era without a doubt. His scoring capabilities would drive defenders crazy. Dude was just awkward to guard, was a great shooter, moved extremely well without the ball, and was very smart. Was great at using angles and catching his opponent off balance and knew how to protect the ball. But I think what made him even better was his toughness. He'd be the tougher player in today's puss#fied era.

Hornacek is the reason the Jazz went to 2 NBA Finals in a row.

Before that it was Stockton, Malone, and ???? noboby. He was their 3rd guy. The Bosh to their Lebron and Wade.

Very true.

He was also a very TOUGH defender.

What he lacked in athleticism, he made up in toughness and IQ. If my memory serves me right, I saw him give MJ fits because he simply wouldn't back down but he knew the angles and how to cut MJ off. But more importantly, I can't recall a player give MJ such a hard time on the other end. Most people think about Reggie, Mitch or others, but I feel that Jeff was harder for MJ to guard cause he was constantly moving and just shot awkwardly. He took shots you force people to take so naturally and consistently. I don't remember watching him miss often. A key difference between he and other off the ball players such as Reggie, is that unlike Reggie, Jeff didn't camp out in the perimeter. Jeff was always moving and driving using his body to protect the ball, taking off balance jumpers on the run, something we see little of today.

If Rip is an all star in this era, there is no doubt that Jeff would easily be one. A better defender than Ray, tougher and better player then Rip, can't think of another player like him. I guess a close Ginobli, although Ginobli is better in some areas, while Jeff is slightly better in others.

Hard to remember, but Hornacek was not as good as Ginobli. Hornacek did average 20 PPG one season though. Just a great shooter, and yes a very tough and smart player. He fit in well with Malone and Stockton...all hard nosed players.

He's better than Rip Hamilton, I don't think there is any doubt.

TRIVIA: Hornacek was traded with 2 other guys for what player?

Chuck?

In regards to Gino... Gino is better in some aspects. Gino is a better slasher, better athlete and creator. Jeff is a better defender, tougher, better shooter, off the ball etc.

But then again, how would Gino's game translate in Jeff's era?

Jeff without a doubt would flourish even more in today's game. Having said that, he would need to play in a system that would know how to take advantage of his constant movement. Cause if he has a pg that can't pass, or big men that can't set screens, some of his strengths get diminished. But with the puss*fied rules in today's game, he'd be drawing fouls left and right, his game would open up even more. You can't play zone on him cause he'd exploit it, he'll drive down the lane cause you gotta play him close, no hand check rules will allow him that extra step to beat you.... in other words, he'd be a nightmare to guard. Not saying that he'd be an MVP caliber player, but no doubt 2nd ballot all star consistently.
