I am trying to see if a LAG or Smart Load Balancing from our Managed L3 Switch to servers is better? Which will allow more/better connectivity and throughput?

I would personally stick to LAG (if you mean 802.3ad)
Smart Load Balancing is a proprietary Broadcom feature, but LAG  is a standard feature, so you'll get much broader support for LAG.
