Jerry Darnell Stackhouse born 5 November 1974, played for 8 teams in the NBA.

Drafted in 1995, he was selected by the Philadelphia 76ers where he led his teams with a 19.2 points per gam average and was named in the NBA’s All-Rookie team. In the 1996–97 season, the 76ers also drafted Allen Iverson. Combined, the two posted 44.2 points per game for the Sixers.

Steakhouse went on to play for the Wizards, Mavs, Bucks, Heat, Hawks and Nets. During the 2004–05 playoffs, Stackhouse began wearing pressure stockings during games to keep his legs warm to aid his groin injury and hold his thigh sleeves in place; the stockings also allowed for better blood flow to the legs. The practice quickly became a trend among NBA players, with Kobe Bryant, Tracy McGrady, Vince Carter, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and others adopting pressure stockings the following season.

He retired in 2013 and on November 15, 2013, it was announced that Stackhouse had joined Fox Sports Detroit as a Pistons analyst. He will primarily provide studio analysis but will be the road color commentator for FSN DETROIT on select road trips. Stackhouse will also be a college basketball analyst for the ACC Network and FSN DETROIT. By Joining FOX SPORTS DETROIT, Stackhouse will be joining his former Pistons teammate Mateen Cleaves in the studio.
