Jason Terry seems to have embraced the Celtics culture faster than any free agent acquisition in NBA history — especially for a veteran who has won a championship in another city. Terry has yet to play a regular season game in Boston and he already sounds like someone who bleeds green, complete with knowing who to love and who to hate. The former Maverick talked about that in the latest edition of his blog on ESPNBoston.com.
“It didn’t take me long to embrace being a Celtic,” Terry wrote. “I hate whoever they hate. The Lakers are number one up there and the Heat aren’t too far behind. Doc tells us every day to think about the Heat. Not only does he tell us, but the film plays over and over if you go to the practice facility. Before practice and after practice, that series [2012 Eastern Conference Finals] is playing over and over on the television.
“We start off the season against them (Oct. 30 in Miami). Obviously the road to the championship goes through the champions and that’s the Miami Heat. I take it on. I take it on personally. This is just a part of me, my make up, and my character.”
Sensing a theme? Last month, Terry said he has made it his mission to kill the Heat and Lakers this year. He also wasted no time getting a Celtics tattoo. The way he talks you would think he’s been a Celtic for life, and that’s exactly the type of attitude Boston needs from him if they want to contend for one last title without Ray Allen.
