Jason Terry Signing In Beverly Hills (Video)
After eight highly successful seasons with the Dallas Mavericks, longtime NBA sharpshooter Jason Terry has taken his game to the Boston Celtics, in the hopes of hoisting yet another Larry O'Brien Trophy above his head. Terry was an integral part of Dallas' 2011 NBA championship run, which of course concluded with the shocking six-game upset of the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals. During 2011's second round sweep of the Los Angeles Lakers, Terry tied an NBA record by successfully knocking down nine three-point field goals. Now in his fourteenth season, the 2009 Sixth Man of the Year stands as the fourth most prolific three-point shooter in NBA history.
In addition to his Mavericks triumph, the Arizona alum also holds the distinction of winning both an NBA and NCAA title. Terry was a member of the Wildcats 1997 Final Four victory over the Kentucky Wildcats.
Thursday, the 1999 first round selection (played first five seasons with Atlanta Hawks) was seen signing autographs and posing for photos outside the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, Boston's sleeping spot when taking the hardwood in Los Angeles. Just like Celtics coach Doc Rivers, Terry could not have been more obliging, in his interaction with fans. When one's basketball career includes both pro and college championships, as well as $87 million of income (not including his three-year/$15 million Boston deal), it's no wonder that the Seattle native continues to be all smiles.
Later that night, Terry tabulated 10 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists, in the Celtics 106-77 blowout loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.
