Jerry Stackhouse is one of the NBA’s most infamous fighters.

Kirk Snyder. Christian Laettner. Jeff Hornacek. Brevin Knight. Allen Iverson.

They were all on the receiving end.

Stackhouse on The Woj Pod:

There’s not one fight or skirmish that I’ve been in that I started. I still hold to that. I just feel like, OK, I might have decided to finish it. But I did not start it. That’s not who I am. I was raised to protect myself and protect my family. But I was never an instigator in any of those situations, in my mind.

“In my mind” is doing a lot of work there.
