It’s summer, but Jason Terry still tweaking LeBron

Jason Terry just can’t help himself.

All through the finals he didn’t back down and trash talked LeBron. The Mavs won, but Terry isn’t done.

Remember how after the finals ended LeBron said that all those Heat haters, “at the end of the day they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life that they had before they woke up today.”

Terry told New York-based Zags blog that he is happy to go back to his life.

“Well, my normal little life just got a little bigger, so I thank him for that,” the Dallas Mavericks guard said Wednesday at the Reebok Breakout Challenge at Philadelphia University.

Terry also gave his theory on why he and the Mavericks are NBA champions.

“Basketball’s a team sport,” said Terry, who averaged 17.5 points per game in the playoffs and shot over 44 percent from three-point range. “When you out in competition, it takes five guys on the court at a time. They had three great players. They just needed a little more help. We had about nine or 10 exceptional players that played well. We maximized our individual talent within a team concept and that’s why we’re the NBA champions.”

    Well Congrats to you and the Mavs, but that will be your last ring, unless you get lucky and get traded to the HEAT!

      Dude, nothing you say changes the fact that the Heat lost and a lot of guys would love to leave the game with one ring. Nobody is guaranteed a ring. I do think that Miami has a grat chance of winning rings in the future, but any thing can happen, injury, poor chemistry, playing against a veteran team with better team chemistry (i.e. a better team). Miami was the odds on to win this thing, but were convincingly beaten by a better team, better shooters, better team defense, better chemistry,…..better team. Not necessarily better individually. But Miami should be better next year as long as they stay healthy.

        Poor chemistry? um, yeah evidence by the fact they were two games away from winning it all in their first year, right? 31 other teams wish they had that type poor chemistry and talent…i will agree with you they (d-wade, LeBron) get suckered into playing ‘hero’ ball, but that will iron itself out with more time on the court in crucial moments…ie, playoff ball.

        Injuries? you can say that about every single franchise in the NBA…

        Veteran team or better team? like who the Mavs? id like to see those older players like Jkidd n the Jet keep up after another season and then playoff run…not pretty, imo.
        Who else Chicago? Thunder? more experienced than the Heat? this will be there 8th yr, and all are under 30. get over it. Miami locked down NBA for next 6-7yrs.

        NBA ‘ships go through MIA….all of the league recognizes.

    LeBron is Jason Terry’s bitch.

  4. bhester1906 - Jul 7, 2011 at 4:40 PM

    Wadda ya know another Lebron James reference. Is there anyone else to talk about???

    • southbeachtalent - Jul 8, 2011 at 10:23 AM

      That’s the only way Terry gets a headline you know.

    can i ask where all the heat fans went? they were everywhere a few months ago. are they mavericks fans now?

    • edweird0 - Jul 7, 2011 at 8:28 PM

      Still here douche. & since when are Heat fans not allowed to admire other teams? The Mavs are a great team, that doesn’t mean that I’m rooting for them now just cause they beat the team I support.

    • delfi2 - Jul 7, 2011 at 9:39 PM

      right here. aint ever left….what you got? let me guess, you are a……Mavs fan now, and you live in Cleveland…..no, you live in North Dakota

      • edweird0 - Jul 7, 2011 at 10:52 PM

        Lol I know. Those wanna be Mavs fans are the funniest. & don’t even get me started on Cleveland fans “adopting” the mavs as their team. Have some self respect ppl.

      • southbeachtalent - Jul 8, 2011 at 10:22 AM

        Yea the Mavs are honorary Ohioans!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA that’s freakin hilarious. What a freakin town. Grow some b@lls Cleveland. Even your government officials were broken hearted. Oh and Dan Gilbert we are waiting for that championship you claimed? MORON!

        Hopefully Cleveland wont be the broken hearted girlfreind of the league next year.

    • southbeachtalent - Jul 8, 2011 at 10:09 AM

      Still here nfl25, it seems YOU have become a Mavs fan? Terry congrats. Now STFU, if it wasn’t for two monumental collapses in the 4th qtr your “team concept” style play (Bulls, Celtics) would have lost the Finals. You guys executed while the Heat didn’t, that’s the bottom line.

      As a Heat fan it’s hilarious to hear the experts and players criticize how far the Heat got this year. They all talk about team play but expect a team to win the Championship there first season together? A team takes time to mend and learn how to play. I’ve heard people say, “well they had all season to mend” that’s rediculous. The Mavs won on their second opportunity after being together (core) for a while. Terry is a blow hard, I had respect for him before the series started but he has proved to be a complete douche. Still happy for Dirk and Kidd they have my respect and always will. On the bright side Terry doesnt have to cut up his arm removing that rediculous trophy he tattooed before the season even began. If LeBron (the anti-christ) were to do that he would be killed.

      I hope no games are missed in the lockout, we are chomping at the bit to make our second consecutive Finals appearance!! GO HEAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! F the HATERS!!!!

    Funny-I remember being TOLD by this blog that coughgate wasn’t a big deal and should be treated like a little joke amongst friends *guffaw*. It was almost like a pre-emptive scolding.

    Yet Terry references a Lebron quote to show he’s enjoying life post-championship, Mahinimi gives a pretty tame “Yeah kobe’s arrogant, but he’s still loved’…and it’s all of a sudden defined as tweaking and stomping the Lakers when they’re down, respectively. Guess you gotta do what you gotta do in the offseason, huh?

    • southbeachtalent - Jul 8, 2011 at 10:18 AM

      Lots of sensitive fans out there. I’m sure Dirk (the one being made fun of) took less offense than half the people in the country. We know you hate LeBron but your grasping at straws. Just like the dunk video on the camper, come on that’s probably the best moment in that kids life. I’d love to be on the same court as a pro! Cry me a freakin river? Cavs fan???

  7. crazyguy358 - Jul 9, 2011 at 10:53 PM
