Michael Jordan is the one player EVERY hooper in NBA history wished they had the chance to team with during their careers ... right??
Nope!!! So says Jerry Stackhouse ... who reveals being Jordan's teammate actually SUCKED in 2002 ... and he wished it never happened.
"Honestly, I wish I never played in Washington and for a number of reasons," Stackhouse said on "The Woj Pod."
"It was really challenging to be able to be in a situation with an idol who at this particular point, I felt like I was a better player," Stack said.
It may sound crazy for JS to say he was ever better than the G.O.A.T. ... but let's remember, MJ was NOT the real MJ we all know and love during his Wizards days.

Jerry points out the season was off to a better start because the offense was running through him ... and then MJ had to take over.
"He wanted to get a little more isolations on the post, of course, so we had more isolations for him on the post."
To add insult to injury ... Stackhouse's old team, the Detroit Pistons, ended up winning the title 2 years after he was traded to D.C. ... and the Wizards never sniffed the playoffs.
Stackhouse says he never really had much fun that season ... and ended up losing respect for Jordan.
"Kind of the picture I had in my mind of Michael Jordan and the reverence I had for him, I lost a little bit of it during the course of that year."
