Quote of the Day: Jason Terry is ready to kill Heat, Lakers

Sep 25, 2012, 2:29 PM EDT

Jason Terry AP

“My mission is to kill; whether it’s the Heat, whether it’s the Lakers. Hopefully both. That’s my mission, and that’s what I’m here to do.”

Jason Terry, via

The quote came before Terry stepped out for a round of golf for a Celtics charity.

Terry is key for the Celtics this year because he can create his own shot, and create for others. Last season that fell to Rajon Rondo, plus they ran Ray Allen off 47 screens (and got Kevin Garnett the rock in his spots). Now Terry can come in and make plays, provide a real scoring punch off the bench. He’s an upgrade over Ray Allen for the Celtics system.

And you have to like his attitude. At least you know KG does.

      Yall are all ignorant, he’s a “wtupid jerk” because he says he wants to beat the Lakers and Heat. Isn’t that every playoff teams mission, if its not its going to have to be in order to win the championship.

    OH LET’S DO IT!!! #TeamGreen

    Well, that’s what he should say. Unfortunately for him, the Heat have a battery of anti-aircraft guns, to continue the analogy.

    I can’t wait for actual basketball analysis about actual basketball games to be back on this site. Nonetheless, here I am, lapping it up like a feral dog.

    When calling someone stupid, it helps to type it correctly…

    Garbage quote from a garbage player.

    • money2long - Sep 25, 2012 at 11:35 PM

      if you’re calling terry garbage, you’re calling doc rivers an idiot, you know, seeing as how doc was the first person to call the man as soon as free agency opened up.

      • nlruizjr - Sep 26, 2012 at 12:32 AM

        well I guess Doc is an idiot, if Jason was still good don’t you think his last team would of fought hard to keep him, I just saw Terry disappear on the playoffs, especially facing pressure, you don’t think that he won’t face pressure this year, just saying, call em, like you see em !!!!!

      • rtfinch - Sep 26, 2012 at 10:39 AM

        didnt look like he disappeared vs the heat in the finals. dirk called him out after being down 2-1 and he responded pretty well i thought.

      • money2long - Sep 26, 2012 at 3:54 PM

        umm do u think the reigning defensive player of the year wasn’t good? cuban seemed to have no problem letting him go. also, keep in mind the execs in dallas were making all their moves to free up money for big time talent, franchise player talent. u

    He is also key because he is willing to kill opposing players. That will have a major impact on the outcome of games.

    Have fun removing that championship tattoo next year

    • phaden27 - Sep 25, 2012 at 5:56 PM

      Like he did with the other one? Shush.

      • nlruizjr - Sep 26, 2012 at 12:34 AM

        Good thing he can only count up to 7, ha,ha !!!!!

      • phaden27 - Sep 28, 2012 at 12:00 PM

        The number of Heat fan down and up voters on this site has soared this offseason. Maybe it will give the clown a new fan base to go on about.

  9. bozosforall - Sep 25, 2012 at 10:15 PM

    The only jerks here are the ones being performed in the Celtic fan circle variety. Then pudhummer53 dives into the middle and slurps up the spent offerings.

  10. scalfor3 - Sep 26, 2012 at 1:11 AM

    well i’m outraged. he should be terrified of the heat and lakers and not even attempt to beat them.

    wait that makes no sense whatsoever…

  11. pantsonfire101 - Sep 26, 2012 at 9:45 AM

    You know it’s funny people call Terry stupid but they don’t spell it right but IM a Miami fan so I really don’t care

  12. quancao - Sep 26, 2012 at 12:09 PM

    Bring it on, Jet !!! I am sure any Heat or Laker member will make sure you eat your words. the next time you play Miami and LA, they will stuff it down your throat and make you gag !!!
    It is always nice to see bravado, but in the words of MJ, it is not bravado if you brung it !!! You may have contributed a few shots, but Dallas’ trophy was all Dirk. Have you learned nothing from Mark Cuban’s assessment of you? And before Celtic fans continue to denigrate Ray Allen by saying JT is a step up, just wait until you see the chemistry between Rondo and Terry. Just wait !!!

  13. targetedguy - Sep 27, 2012 at 12:36 AM

    No matter how much we all would love to see them make the Finals,these Celtics don’t stand a chance against the Heat. Let alone Lakers! Although they will be highly competitive and Fun To Watch. Good luck Celtics…

    bozo: Nice description of your Saturday nights. Thing is, nobody hear wants to read a out your alternative lifestyle on a basketball thread.

    One idiotic post after another from you.
    That name change thing you do? That’s just precious and oh so original.

    You’re clownshoes- with every posting you reenforce it.

    I’m sorry someone poked your fartbox when you were younger. That’s the only logical reason for your postings.
