Jason Terry isn't one to shy away from telling it like it is or what's on his mind. While with the Mavericks, he was never shy to voice his dislike for the Spurs, nor was he shy from getting a tattoo of the NBA Finals trophy on his arm before Dallas even won it in 2011. So when interviewed by NBA TV, Terry showed just how happy he is about signing with the Boston Celtics. Not only that, when asked about the first time he will face his former team, "The Jet" didn't hold back while showering Boston with praise. Despite his age, Terry is sure to be a nice replacement for Ray Allen who signed with the Heat. He brings intensity, a killer instinct, offensive punch off the bench and has championship pedigree to help Boston get another shot at the NBA Finals. [follow]
