In my last post about Jason Terry I mentioned that the media was going to love him because he's always ready to talk and is always quotable. Today he is debuting his new diary for ESPNBoston. He talks about a little bit of everything from the trip to Europe to a little about himself and his background to his excitement about being a Celtic. Here are just a couple quotes from the ever-quotable Jason Terry's diary. He describes the funiest moment on the trip: The funniest moment on the trip was we were attracting a lot of attention because of KG's [Kevin Garnett] size. He's so tall that they recognized him easily. We were getting bombarded by pictures. So all of sudden, KG takes the camera from one lady and started taking pictures of her. We got quite a crowd around us once they saw what he was up to. And he talks about the "Wolfpack." We ate breakfast together. We ate dinner together. At night, I called it campfire style where we bonded and formed a group called the Wolfpack. So it was the same group of guys downstairs at the hotel sitting under heated lamps telling stories and playing cards -- that was really big for us. The Wolfpack was everybody on the team. Everybody every night was down there but we called it the Wolfpack as a team bonding thing. He discusses being one of 10 children and the sacrifice his mother made raising them by herself and having to help out with the responsibilities at home. I've had some tough obstacles to overcome in life with losing two siblings. The challenges that I went through, was all about sacrifice. In my life and in my career it's been all about the sacrifice. On the court, I've been a player who has always sacrificed. Coming off the bench, when I could easily be starting for any team in the league, I'm showing everyone around me that sometimes sacrificing is good as long as it turns into a winning situation. He talks about his appreciation for the Celtics' storied history as being one of the reasons he wanted to come to Boston. I wanted to be able to one day say, "Man, I was on the Boston Celtics." John Havlicek, Don Nelson, all the history here. Bill Russell lives by my mom in Washington. I wanted to be a part of that rich culture because I'm a basketball historian. After 13 years in the league, when you become a free agent you look at three teams: The Lakers, the Celtics and maybe the Knicks. But really, you know Boston and L.A. are class organizations. He's also developing a sense of the Celtics true rivals and explains how Doc is really serious about hating the Heat this season. It didn't take me long to embrace being a Celtic. 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. Jet's diary is going to be one of my favorite parts of this season. You need to read the whole thing and it will definitely become one of yours as well.  [Discuss on CG Forums!]
