I can’t blame Jerry Stackhouse for wanting to play basketball for as long as someone will pay him, but when you are getting dunked on in summer leagues by hot shots from the University of North Carolina who are literally the age you were when you were a hot shot at the University of North Carolina., maybe it is time to call it quits.

Or at the very least, stick to what you do best. That’s what Rasheed Wallace, Jer-Bear’s college teammate, does.

See, Sheed gets what it means to age gracefully. Once you’re too washed up for the NBA, you retire and spend the rest of your days using your natural curmudgeon skills to complain at refs, even when the games don’t matter. That’s how you do it, not getting dunked on by punk kids who are basically you when you were 19. Not everything has to be a Neil Young song.

However, if Jerry is still playing because that means he always gets a chance to sing the national anthem in front of a large crowd, then that makes sense. The people need to hear those sensual pipes.

  1. But isn’t half his age like 50? The dudes a dinosaur

  2. That was pretty good defense, dunk aside.

  3. I’m 38, and they’ll keep me from playing hoop with the best players and best game I can possibly when those guys start freezing me out, or rolling their eyes when I’m on their team, once they have already run with me a few times. They will be prying my kicks off my cold, dead feet. If I get dunked on, sobeit.

  4. He’s also not the punk who got his ankles broke and let his man get a running start at the rim. I’m not a Stack guy, but if an old dude gets dunked on playing some help defense for his teammate who just got beat that bad, I sure as hell am not going to rip on him for it.

  5. Noah is half of Jerry Stackhouse’s age…

  6. Noah is half of Jerry Stackhouse’s age…

  7. That was a hardcore travel. That was such a monumental travel that it made LeBron blush. Even Corey Maggetti thought that was a travel and I’ve seen that dude take 9 steps and look puzzled after they call traveling
