Jason Terry makes insane admission about 2011 Mavs championship run
It’s been nine years since retired NBA player Jason Terry won a title with the Dallas Mavericks, but he recently admitted that he still feels that championship high.
“Oh it never gets old for me. I actually replay it twice a week. Now that I’ve got plenty of time on my hands I’ll be watching again tonight. I’ll pick one game out of one of the series and watch it from start to finish. That’s a constant thing around my house,” he said.
“It’s 100 percent true.”
The combo guard was part of the 2006 Mavs squad that lost the Finals against the Heat. He played Robin to Dirk Nowitzki’s Batman, as they managed to avenge that defeat five years later and give the Mavs its first and only title in franchise history.
The 6-foot-2 shooter even famously had a tattoo of the Larry O’Brien trophy on his bicep prior to the start of the 2010-11 season for encouragement.
Terry, who played for five other NBA teams, had his best years during his eight-year tenure in Dallas. “The Jet” never made an All-Star team but he was named the Sixth Man of the Year in 2009. Terry has career averages of 13.4 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 3.8 assists and was a 38-percent career shooter from downtown.
He last played for the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2017-18 season and now currently serves as assistant general manager of the Texas Legends of the NBA G League.
