Tweet of the Day goes to Jason Terry, who announced his official signing with the Boston Celtics and shared the following picture:
Boston lost one of the best shooters in the league in Ray Allen, but Terry will certainly suffice as a replacement. The former sixth man of the year may not shoot as efficiently as Allen (who does?) from the 3-point line, but is two years younger and was a huge part of the 2011 Mavericks team that captured a championship.
Here is a little more about Terry and the signing, from A Sherrod Blakely: “Jason is one of the best sixth men in the NBA and his versatility in the backcourt is a great addition to our roster,” said Danny Ainge, Celtics President of Basketball Operations. The 6-2 guard can play both positions, but has proven to be one of the NBA’s all-time great 3-point shooters. In fact only Allen, Jason Kidd and Reggie Miller have made more 3-pointers than Terry who has 1,788. And while his role will surely be to provide a jolt of offense off the bench, he might be in the starting lineup on opening night depending on how quickly Avery Bradley can recover from surgery to both of his shoulders.”
