Stackhouse was a far, far better player overall than Arenas.
Arenas had a couple of good seasons and that was it.
Stackhouse actually showed himself to be able to be a star, a solid sixth man, and a good teammate overall.

Gilbert Arenas in his prime was a legit top 10-15 player in the league. I don't think Jerry Stackhouse was ever that good in his prime. Not to mention the fact that Arenas was more efficient than Stackhouse and that is saying something. I would have to go with Arenas for this comparison.

Stackhouse. He proved over the years that he could thrive in different environments. Arenas did not. I have my doubts if prime Arenas would be as good in a different situation.

It says prime not career. Look at the Pistons and Wiazards when Jerry left. Pistons became a power in the east after the RIP trade. Wizars became playoff regulars after Jerry left andwas replaced by Arenas. Stackhouse couldn't even make an All-NBA team when he avg 29 ppg, Arenas was a 3 time All-NBA player. Out of the late 90s and early 2000s all star SG's, Stackhouse is the last guy I want. Behind of course Kobe, AI, Vince, T-Mac, PP and Ray. But also I'd take Houston, Finley, Sprewell and Eddie Jones over him. With Arenas its not 10 guards you'd take over him circa 2004-2008.

Umm, is this serious?

You guys realize that prime Arenas is 29ppg/6 assists/4 rebounds on 45% fg, 37% 3pt fg, All-NBA 2nd team, popular enough to START at the All-Star guard spot over Vince Carter, on the cover of NBA Live 08 when Live was still the #1 basketball game, all while leading a playoff team and hitting game winning shot after game winning shot.

Stackhouse made the All-Star team once, a fringe All-Star during his prime.

It's literally two different levels of a player.

Nah I would go with Stackhouse. Bigger, tougher, goes to the rim harder and a former scoring champ.
