I love Jason Terry. I've shared my excitement for his signing numerous times on this blog. Yet for the past 3 games, former 6th man of the year hasn't been able to live up to the hype, which is perfectly in line with the team's story overall. Of course the Celtics are going to solve their problems and get better as they find chemistry/identity/Ubuntu/hyena spirit, but I'd like to focus specifically on Terry's issues in this post.
1.Terry is shooting badly: This is quite straightforward: His shots aren't dropping. In fact, his eFG% (that accounts for the fact that 3pts are worth more than 2pts) is at a career low for the first 3 games. The last time Terry had such a 3pt drought (where he shot with such low percentage and at least took the same amount of shots on average) was in January 2012 and lasted for 4 games, so things should return to normal levels soon, hopefully.
Another reason Terry's shots hasn't been falling is that he's been taking ...
BEST OF MAXIM
In a Boston Herald article this morning by Mark Murphy, Jason Terry talks of his long standing relationship with Avery Bradley. As a high school sophomore, Bradley was a member of an AAU team in Tacoma, Washington that was founded by Terry's father. Terry recalls playing in a pickup game with the young Bradley:
Avery Bradley: "The Glove 2.0?"

NOCTV is back with episode VI of “Jason Terry is a Celtic”. In the latest installment, JT tries his hand at parking cars before a Sox game near Fenway.

What is that joke about giving up your day job or something?
It appears Celtics guard Jason Terry wants to do more to meet his new fans in Boston. So he appeared in a video as a parking attendant. A parking attendant charging $30 park. And wondering why nobody will park in his lot.
Would you park for a basketball, baseball or football game for $30?
In the Celtics Minute, Doc and Jason Terry discuss the need for more consistency and for hard work to get the Celtics to where they want to be. Doc stressed the need for hard work, "Being a good team takes work. You don't just show up, and because you've got good names on paper, and be good." Doc closed today's practice with conditioning drills as part of...

BOSTON — The sharpshooter was making golf analogies and the Celtics had just won a ballgame. It was like old times in the home locker room at the TD Garden.
The only differences were that this sharpshooter was not Ray Allen but Jason Terry, and the ballgame the Celtics had just won was a dreadful-looking escape act against and underwhelming opponent missing its two best players...

It has been the lack of performance from KG that has made victories hard to come by early on in the season.
This isn’t exactly how we Celtics fans expected our team to come out of the gate. Especially not with promises from Jason Terry of a championship and overall confidence beaming from the entire team. And let’s not forget the trip overseas that supposedly bonded...

My sister and I with a pair of Rondo's game shoes!
I was lucky enough to attend the game last night in DC. I went with my mom and sister and had awesome seats about 10 rows up. This gave me a chance to really watch the Celtics up close and personal, and what I saw was a team that is still working on finding its identity.
The Wizards are a terrible basketball team. I said...
