Found March 21, 2013 on Celtics Life:
From a Newsday.com article by Roderick Boone, Mark Cuban came to the defense of his former player Jason Terry's attempt to defend that alley-oop dunk by LeBron James on Monday night: "More credit for Jet. It's the gutless who worry about what they look like in a poster and it's the real guys, the real players who have no problem playing the game. Like I said before, I give credit to Brandon Knight, I give credit to Jet. You do your job and not care about the posters or the tweets. Those are the kind of guys teams wants." Here's more of the same Cuban quote from ESPN Dallas' Tim MacMahon: "I don't know what his plan was, but his plan certainly wasn't to avoid whatever it was [James] wanted to do. And I give him credit for that. If he was trying to take a charge, that's one thing. If he was going straight up and down -- you can create contact and it's still not a foul -- that's a way you might stop him. If he got caught in betw...

LeBron Says Dunk Was Sweeter Because It Was on Jason Terry

Jason Terry is one of the main reasons, LeBron only has only one ring and not two, so I am not surprised he took pleasure in taking Terry’s soul. I am a little surprised he publicly admitted it, but little by little, the villain in LeBron is starting to come out. “It was one of my better ones,” James said. “And the fact that it happened to J.T. made it even that much sweeter...

Jason Terry fires back at Lebron James

ESPN Boston: [LeBron] picked his poison. They put him on me to shut me down in the NBA Finals in 2011 and he couldn't get the job done. Hopefully he'll have another chance this year in the Eastern Conference finals -- or wherever we match up -- but I'm telling you right now, I love us, I love the way we're built. We miss [Rajon] Rondo, we miss [Jared] Sullinger, but...

Tired and Uninspired: Boston Celtics lose to Dallas Mavericks

Jason Terry was uninspiring in his return to Dallas.Eight-point leads are such a tease.On a night when most people were more interested in the college basketball games on TV, the Celtics looked equally uninterested in the proceedings. Every time Boston went on a run and cut the lead to six, eight or ten points, the Mavericks responded with a 3-pointer or a pair of baskets to push...

Celtics Might Be Long Shots to Make Deep Playoff Run, But Oddsmakers Like C’s Over Nets, Hawks, Bulls

Yeah, we’ve all seen it by now: Jason Terry got put on a poster. Not a poster, but a milk carton. Worse yet, the Boston Celtics fell two points short of the reigning champion Miami Heat in their mid-March rematch. Sometimes it’s necessary to taste the sour sensation of suffering before one can truly rise from the ashes. Fans looking to bet on the NBA playoff chase, take note...

LeBron adds a little trash talk to his dunk on Terry

By now, we have all gotten caught up in the debate of whose “posterization” was better, LeBron James on Jason Terry or DeAndre Jordan on Brandon Knight. I am still giving the edge to Jordan, but I have no doubt that Terry is having a few nightmares. After a dunk like that, you know reporters and members of the media are going to be asking you all kinds of questions. You can...

Terry: We'll see Heat in the playoffs

Jason Terry is confident that the Celtics will meet the Heat in the playoffs and that there will be "fireworks." He had more to say.

LeBron James Pleased With Dunk Over Jason Terry: Im Glad It Happened To Him

LeBron James is pleased with his monster alley-oop poster on Jason Terry, not only because it was one of the “better” dunks of his career, but also because it was to the humiliation of Jason Terry, who “talks too much sometimes”. According to ABC News: “It’s one of my better ones and the fact that it happened to J.T. makes it even that much sweeter because we all know...

Shootaround: In the hangar

 Boston Celtics (36-31) vs. Dallas Mavericks (32-36) 8:30 p.m. In some ways, Jason Terry has fit right in with Boston. No, the Celtics are not among the elite in the East anymore (although opponents should still be wary). The season has not quite gone according to plan for Boston. The Playoffs are still going to take place for the Celtics and that is something. Terry...

Mark Cuban Challenges Donald Trump To ‘Harlem Shake Duel’ On Twitter

Mark Cuban and Donald Trump are no strangers when it comes to Twitter beefs. The two billionaires have had their fair share of back-and-forth jabs about anything and everything–from who’s television show is better to who is going to take over the world and even who is better looking. After the Mavericks victory over the Atlanta Hawks Monday night, Cuban and Trump were back at...

Celtics-Grizzlies Live: Paul Pierce, Celts Try to Halt Skid, But Will Have to Grind for Win in Memphis

8 a.m. ET: Jason Terry is not the sympathetic type. When he saw teammate Courtney Lee writhing in pain on the floor late in Friday’s loss in Dallas, Terry’s thought was a bit harsh. “Get your [butt] up,” Terry thought to himself, as he told reporters. Lee did not get up, at least not under his own power, and his status for Saturday’s game in Memphis is unclear. If Lee cannot...

Who did it better? DeAndre Jordan vs. LeBron James

Brandon Knight and Jason Terry both have been the victims of humiliating dunks courtesy of Clippers' DeAndre Jordan and Heat's LeBron James respectively. Both dunks were absolutely filthy, worthy of being named Dunk of the Year but only one can be chosen tops between the two. Each have their similarities and differences. Jordan's alley-oop dunk over Knight was...

Should Jeff Green remain in the starting line-up?

Some guys are just better as starters. Jeff Green is one of them. Whereas players like Jason Terry and Jamal Crawford thrive off the bench, others need to start to bring the most out of them. McHale was able to handle a bench role. Cedric Maxwell wasn't. For that reason Max started and McHale came off the bench. And when McHale took over the starting spot permanently, Maxwell...
