Sun Apr 7, 2013
When he took the floor with the Nets for the first time this season, Jerry Stackhouse became the first pro athlete from one of the Big Four sports to wear No. 42 in Brooklyn since Jackie Robinson wore it for the Dodgers 55 years ago. "I was a little reserved about (wearing No. 42) at first, because I knew the history and I knew what it really stood for in Brooklyn," Stackhouse said.
