Jerry Stackhouse talks playing with Michael Jordan, Wizards

Former two-time NBA All-Star Jerry Stackhouse grew up idolizing Michael Jordan. Stackhouse, like Jordan, attended the University of North Carolina, and despite his playing a different position than his idol, Stackhouse was compared to Jordan while he was preparing for the NBA. 

But in an episode of ESPN’s “The Woj Pod” released Wednesday, the 18-year pro said he wishes he never would have played alongside Jordan with the Wizards in 2002-03, a year that turned out to be Jordan’s final NBA season.

“Honestly, I wish I never played in Washington and for a number of reasons,” Stackhouse said. “I felt 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.
