Jerry Stackhouse wishes he ‘never played in Washington’ with Wizards, Michael Jordan

first_img“Watching a team that I kind of helped build the foundation for in Detroit go on to win a championship a couple years later, it left a bad taste in my mouth. So I was pretty happy to get out of Washington and get on to Dallas.”Following his brief run in Washington, Stackhouse made stops in Dallas, Milwaukee, Miami, Atlanta and Brooklyn. Unfortunately for “Stack,” he also missed out on championship campaigns with the Mavericks and Heat late in his career.If only Jordan had stuck with that Hamilton kid. MORE: Kareem laughs at MJ being named greatest college basketball playerStackhouse had a healthy respect for Jordan, calling him an “idol,” but his experience with the Wizards altered MJ’s sterling image.”Honestly, I wish I never played in Washington, for a number of reasons,” Stackhouse said. “I felt like we were on our way in Detroit before I got traded there. It was really challenging to be able to be in a situation with an idol, who at this particular point, I felt like I was a better player. Things were still being run through Michael Jordan. [Head coach] Doug Collins, I love Doug, but I think that was an opportunity for him to make up for some ill moments that they may have had back in Chicago.”So pretty much everything that Michael wanted to do, [we did]. We got off to a pretty good start, and he didn’t like the way the offense was running because it was running a little bit more through me. He wanted to get a little more isolations on the post, of course, so we had more isolations for him on the post. And it just kind of spiraled in a way that I didn’t enjoy that season at all. Kind of picture I had in my mind of Michael Jordan and the reverence I had for him, I lost a little bit of it during the course of that year.”Jordan, a 39-year-old at the time, averaged 20.0 points, 6.1 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game. Stackhouse, meanwhile, posted a team-high 21.5 points and 4.5 assists per game as a 28-year-old only a season removed from back-to-back All-Star appearances with the Pistons, so his frustration with being the second option to Jordan was understandable. The Wizards missed the 2003 playoffs, and Jordan retired for a third and final time following his final game on April 16, 2003.MORE: Release date, TV schedule for ESPN’s “The Last Dance”The Pistons’ success without Stackhouse only made the situation in Washington worse. Detroit surged to the No. 1 seed in the East, and Hamilton emerged as the team’s leading scorer. The Pistons went on to win the 2004 NBA championship with Hamilton playing an instrumental role in the starting five with Chauncey Billups, Tayshaun Prince, Rasheed Wallace and Ben Wallace.”[Jordan] had a young guard there, Rip Hamilton, who I was traded for to Detroit, who he didn’t feel like he could get it done with,” Stackhouse said. “So he was like, ‘Let’s go get Stackhouse. I know he’s tougher and he can score. Let’s go bring him in here.’ But, for me, we just lost in the second round, Detroit, thought we were on our way. …  You know that old expression about never meeting your heroes? Jerry Stackhouse learned that lesson the hard way.The longtime NBA shooting guard and current Vanderbilt men’s basketball head coach told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on “The Woj Pod” that he regrets playing alongside Michael Jordan as a member of the Wizards during the 2002-03 season. Stackhouse was traded from the Pistons to the Wizards in September 2002 as part of the deal that sent Richard Hamilton to Detroit.last_img read more
