MarShon Brooks still upset with new teammate Jerry Stackhouse over childhood autograph snub
Wednesday brought news that the Nets signed Jerry Stackhouse to sit at the end of their bench. It’s not the roster move Nets fans might have been hoping hoping for, but Stackhouse, 37, will give the still-relatively young squad veteran leadership in the locker room.
Nets guard MarShon Brooks, however, apparently isn’t so excited about his team’s new addition. At least not until he can settle a grudge he’s had with Stackhouse since Brooks was young. From the New York Post’s Tim Bontemps:
Brooks: “I want to talk to Jerry. When I was young I went to a Hawks game and he didn’t sign my autograph. He told me no. I remember that.”

Sounds similar to the way David West trolled a bunch of young Pacers fans during the playoffs.
I think we know the only way to settle this: Stack gives Brooks an autograph. Brooks comes away happy because he finally gets his long-awaited autograph. And Stackhouse is happy because somebody still wants his autograph.
