Once upon a time, Jerry Stackhouse was looked at as one of the prolific scorers in college basketball and the NBA for a little while. He was killing the shoe game with his signature FILAs and could score against the best of them early on in his career.
Stackhouse Averaged 19 points and 8 rebounds per game in his sophomore year at North Carolina, and then he was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers with the third overall pick in the 1995 draft. Then, Allen Iverson entered the equation in Philly and he wanted out of there. After being traded to the Detroit Pistons, he had some of his best seasons, the best coming in 2000-01 when he averaged 30 points, 5 assists, and 3 rebounds per game.
Of course age and injury come into play and then Stackhouse turns into a journeyman. So, even though he’s not dunking on people’s heads anymore, he’s still teaching some high schoolers a thing or two.
