Just as she interviews Paul Pierce a couple of weeks ago, Molly McGrath caught up with Jason Terry to get his thoughts on playing with the Celtics and the upcoming season. Here is a link to watch on Celtics.com. I'll pass on a few highlights of the interview. He showed off his new tattoo and said he expects the luck of the leprechaun to win the championship this year. He then said that he believed that the Celtics were right there last year. They were championship team but all they were missing was a little Jet fuel. Great line! He also called Rondo the best point guard in the league once again and gave kudos to Doc.
When asked about how the Dwight Howard trade affects the Celtics he said that it doesn't affect them at all. He said that they don't concern themselves with what everyone else is doing. They're just concerned with the Green and Black. I hope someone briefs him on the fact that Celtics colors are green and white rather than green and black.
He feels that the Celtics are the team to beat in the East. When Molly said that Paul Pierce told her that he was excited to play with Jason Terry this year and asked what he was excited about, Jason said he is just excited to play in Celtic green, the mystique and championship pedigree and heritage. He mentioned the solid core of vets and said that the young guys they drafted were incredible. I really like this guy. He's going to be a great addition to the team, not only for his play but for his enthusiasm and excitement about being a Celtic.
