I am kind of nervous to even write this post, considering what we know what happened to Kirk Snyder. Nonetheless, I will continue apace, letting everyone know that if you criticize Jerry Stackhouse on Twitter, you should expect a response. And not a happy one, either — a real Jerry Stackhouse kind of response.

These come from The Brooklyn Game because Ol’ JerBear already deleted them from his Twitter:

@jkrugelhead get your followers up.. You’re not even worthy of a response

@BSchulzBKN Fans want interaction but when it’s not what you want to hear.. It’s rude and defensive.. Ok

@BSchulzBKN we’ll take pride in the fact your team is 11-1 this year! If I was 36-36 you’d still find something to complain about! Be Happy

@BSchulzBKN Thx! Educate me b/c I’ve never been a fan.. Always on the other side..

@baptiste718 @marshon2 neither one of us make that call. When our number is called we play our mins, if not, we support the other #teammate

@BSchulzBKN wonder if I came to your cubicle and critiqued your work and put it up for public consumption, would your view change??

@jkrugelhead Aren’t you a nets fan? Or just a Marshon fan? This is the best this team has been in loooong time!!

@alboboy98 @ed_boulanger I really don’t mind.. I like to argue sometimes! Lol

@BSchulzBKN I will… Shots come and go just like some “Fans”. I’ve shot 0-1 in 4 of the last 5 game. I’m really struggling? Gtfoh

So many great zings to take from this. Personally, I feel like “get your followers up” is going to be something that I incorporate in to my everyday hater patrolling. It just seems like a very good way to cut to the core of someone’s insecurities and I’m thankful to Jerry Stackhouse for dreaming it up.

Also, if you get Jerry really upset, he’ll send you a direct message explaining how his efficiency isn’t that bad.

If we’ve learned anything about Jerry Stackhouse during his 15,000-year career it’s that he loves singing the national anthem. But if we’ve learned anything else, it’s that you don’t mess with Jerry Stackhouse. Apparently, that even means over Twitter, which is pretty weird to think about when you consider the internet barely existed when Jerry first entered the NBA. I guess this is growing up.
