10 Current NBA Vets Who Deserve a Championship

Jerry Stackhouse

NBA experience: 18 Seasons (1995 - Present)
Teams played for: Philadelphia 76ers (1995-1998), Detroit Pistons (1998-2002), Washington Wizards (2002-2004), Dallas Mavericks (2004-2009), Milwaukee Bucks (2009-2010), Miami Heat (2010-2011), Atlanta Hawks (2011-2012), Brooklyn Nets (2012-present)

If the third overall pick in the 1995 NBA Draft doesn't capture a ring soon, which is probably a year or two max, we fear that he will best be remembered for playing a key role on a Dallas Mavericks squad that choked away a 2-0 lead against the Heat in the 2006 NBA Finals. Then lost to the eighth-seeded Warriors in the first round the following season.

An 18-year veteran, and former Sports Illustrated College Player of the Year (1995), Jerry Stackhouse is the definition of an NBA journeyman. Stack has played for eight different teams since he came into the league with the Sixers in 1995, and while his numbers have significantly been on the decline since the 2006-07 season, he still has an opportunity to capture his first ring. Whether he plays in Brooklyn, or another contender enlists his veteran services, is anyone's guess.
