If you listen to Jason Terry in this video it sounds like the Celtics are still trying to find their way with less than a week left before opening day. But I beg to differ. Boston is one of the rare teams that has made wholesale changes in the off-season and won a championship the same year.
Miami tried it, but we all know the result. Winning a championship is purely about health and can your role players stand up and deliver. For the 2011-12 Heat, it was Mike Miller, Shane Battier and for one game each it was Mario Chalmers and Norris Coles. They have now added Ray Allen And Rashard Lewis; reunited after all these years.
The one thing that you can say about the Heat is that except for their three main players, they only have specialists. That in itself lends to a thin line between winning and losing with a considerable more pressure on your star players.
Boston has done something similar with the additions of Jason Terry, the rooks, Courtney Lee and the return of Jeff Gre...

Jason Terry can flat our shoot. That's why he's #4 all time on the 3-point list. This after starting his career as a point guard and spending the majority of his career coming off the bench. Ray who? I would have been much more scared of the Heat if they had signed Terry.

Former Sixth Man of the Year Jason Terry spoke to the Boston Globe today about the Boston Celtics' bench, claiming it's the deepest in the NBA.
"We have the deepest bench in basketball. The Clippers might have
something to say about that, but it’s us in this locker room. Our
mission every night is to go out and outwork and outscore every other
Jason Terry shows off his shooting ability in this clip. He makes 17 in a row and 18 of 19 in the video. That certainly should help Celtics fans forget the former #20.

I wanted to write something captivating, something magnanimous and beautiful and Joe Posnanskian, but instead I’ll just refrain from describing Amos Barshad’s piece on Jason Terry. My own words would only serve to illustrate how he’s a better, more imaginative, more entertaining writer than I am.So just do yourself a favor and go read his piece.
There is NO DOUBT Jason Terry is already enjoying his time in Boston. The newest member of the Boston Celtics decided to PRANK some folks with just a cardboard box and one of his teammates.
The reactions are PRICELESS…..even his.
Did I count right? 17 straight and 18 of 19.

Those are not my words, they are Jet's, quoted and slightly paraphrased from a wonderfully written Grantland piece by Amos Barshad. Are you somehow still not psyched about Jason Terry? Do you have questions about Celtics' spirit before the season starts? Please read that article and get psyched. (Also, it will probably feel quite refreshing after reading items in which Allen...
The Celtics are still working to stay sharp and get better at practice this week. As always, Jason Terry had some good soundbites for us. Here are a couple of quotes from him from the above video.
"Doc told me before I came here, 'Do something different. Change your habits,'" explained Terry. "My habit coming to this team was that I hated practice. I’ve...
WALTHAM, Mass. -- There are some side effects to hitting so
many clutch shots over the course of a 13-year NBA career. After a player
delivers a few back-breaking 3-pointers, anything that happens outside of a
pressure situation does not easily keep his interest.
That could be why Jason Terry, a former NBA champion and
Sixth Man of the Year, is not very fond...
