"EVERYBODY"? I'd say the majority of people that use slowdown are coaches going up against superior teams, and they usually lose anyway. It's not as if slowdown is some magic bullet.
Mostly this. When I'm overmatched, I go slowdown. If I have the better team, I go uptempo. It's not rocket surgery.
I do, however, think slowdown affects the pace of the game more dramatically than uptempo does.
