Brooklyn Nets forward Jerry Stackhouse finished yesterday’s playoff game against the Chicago Bulls with zero points and two rebounds, but it is what he did before the game that is grabbing everyone’s attention.

The 18-year veteran grabbed the microphone and serenaded the crowd at the Barclays Center with his rendition of the national anthem.

Surprisingly, Stackhouse did an admirable job.

I mean, it wasn’t Roseanne bad, but he wasn’t exactly Luther Vandross either.

Stackhouse got off to a shaky start, but he finally got comfortable and was able to get some support and applause from the crowd. You could tell Stackhouse was comfortable when he started throwing in some ad-libs and and going off on some runs that added his NBA flair to the Star Spangled Banner.

Overall, it was a very solid job.

Here is video of Stackhouse flexing his golden pipes and showing the crowd what he’s got:

With that performance, maybe Stackhouse can get a guest spot on Stephen Jackson’s next record. That would be a collab from the NBA gods.
