JERRY STACKHOUSE — OPENING STATEMENT:. "We're disappointed. Our goal was to come in here, really do something special. I thought our guys fought all the way. Had some opportunities, had some shots to give ourselves a chance. Thought we competed extremely hard, got defensive stops, all the things that you need to do to win a game like this. Just got to shoot a little better percentage. Talked all year, somewhere for us is getting around 11 or 12 threes. Tonight it was nine. We get a couple more of those, couple more stops here and there, could be singing a different story right now. I got no problem with the effort, no problem with how our guys competed. These guys really dealt with a lot this year with COVID, protocols. Every day they came to the gym, stayed together, tried to work hard, work on their game, with a lot of doubt, naysayers about who we were, what these kids were. They just kept going. Super proud of them. Can't wait to get a little bit of time off, let their legs breathe a little bit, probably 10, 11 days, then we'll get right back in the gym and start trying to get better to try to take it a step further next season."

However, it took a while for Nesmith to find his bearings in the NBA. The 3-ball he was known for at Vanderbilt wasn't falling in the early part of the season and he sometimes looked lost on the defensive end.
There were two distinct phases to Jerry Stackhouse’s NBA career, and they can be broken into the pre- and post-MJ eras, as he was once a teammate of Michael Jordan. Stackhouse wasn’t much of a shooter, but he was a scorer up to and including the 2002-03 season playing alongside Jordan for the Washington Wizards. Jordan retired after that season, and Stackhouse suddenly had a greatly reduced role for the remaining decade of his career with has a dozen teams.
