4. Jerry Stackhouse

Another player who provided a spark off the bench was Jerry Stackhouse. The former Maverick was acquired in a trade that sent Sixth Man of the Year candidate Antawn Jamison to the Washington Wizards.

Stackhouse played five seasons in Dallas and was part of the team's 2006 playoff run. Against the Miami Heat, he averaged 12.8 points per game as he was the team's fourth leading scorer.

The prior postseason he averaged 16.1 points per game and came off the bench in all 13 games for Dallas. He proved to be an electric scorer who could get it done offensively.

During his first season with the Mavs, he posted averages of 14.9 points and 3.3 rebounds per game. The following year, his numbers dipped to 13 points per game; he shot 27 percent from the 3-point line. Stackhouse's point percentage would only decrease as he battled with knee and groin injuries.

One thing that stood out about Stackhouse was his flashy show of high-length compression socks. He used them to help aid his injuries. Other players took notice as it became a common trend.

Stackhouse will always be remembered for his high-quality jump shot and high offensive production. If only Dallas had obtained during the early part of his career.
