"I just don't want the day to come where I pick up that paper and it says he shot someone, or that he was shot. Every day that goes by that I don't see that, I feel good." - Moe Smedley, Zach Randolph's high school coach
Jerry Stackhouse - Stackhouse briefly sniffed the NBA earlier this season with the Miami Heat, but shot only 25% in 7 games and was cut for Erick Dampier. Since that time, Stack has been doing work for NBA TV rather than playing. He has already made one comeback from what appeared to be early retirement, but a second one doesn't seem likely. And at aged 36, I don't think retirement could be considered "early" any more.
Jerry Stackhouse - Stackhouse, along with Kurt Thomas, gave the Bucks some toughness last season. Scott Skiles needs some of that. But Thomas has left the team now, and Stack seems sure to follow. After a nothing season in 2008/09 crippled by injuries, Stackhouse was assumed to be done, but he was a surprise and welcome midseason addition for the Bucks. The athleticism has gone, the jumpshot has never advanced much beyond "streaky", and he'll be 36 before next season. That might have been his lust hurrah. But if it's not, he'll still give it his best.
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
