Jason Terry has no intention of trying to replace Ray Allen. When asked about the inevitable comparisons between him and the former Celtics shooting guard, Terry responded ”Who?”“No, we’re two different players and hopefully, I’ll bring something that Ray didn’t and some of the things that he did.

competitive hoops, will know that not every person on the floor, at any given
