"I was in Dallas eight years, played with some great teammates and had a great coach and a great owner. But what the city meant to me is priceless. Without them, I'm nothing. The Jet was born in Dallas, right there in Dallas. So, I always have a home in Dallas and hopefully when I'm done I can go back and end my career there."
End your career there? Huh? Terry says Doc Rivers and the Celtics made him a priority.
"Boston was the first to call me and Doc Rivers got on the phone and said, 'We need you, you're our No. 1 priority.' Had I got that same phone call from Dallas, I'd still be a Dallas Maverick."
Contrast Terry who gave the Mavs a shot to match the $5 million per year contract, with Ray Allen who not only didn't give the Celtics a shot to match, but was demanding three times as much from Boston, as he was from the Heat. Terry's heart is still in Dallas, and you can't blame him. But once training camp rolls around and he starts hanging out with his new teammates, I'm sure he'll be all about the Celtics. Fans are going to love the Jet in Boston.
