Jason Terry will always be known as a bold prediction type of guy. The Boston Celtics guard has guaranteed that his new team will bring home the title in 2013. He does have a prior track record of this so this could be a great sign for the fans.
“There’s the lucky leprechaun,”he told WBZ-TV’s Steve Burtonduring an interview Thursday at Canton’s Reebok Headquarters that will air Sunday night on Sports Final, “and he’s spinning the Larry O’Brien trophy, which we will win this year.”
“If I looked at our team and what they accomplished last year, they’re one game away. They’re one game away from going back to the NBA Finals, and I think they win it. This year, put a little ‘Jet Fuel’ into the mix, and I think we have the team.”
Remember, Jason Terry did this when he was a member of the Dallas Mavericks. He predicted a title win with a tattoo and his brashness paid off. It might seem a little bit out there, but the man has confidence in himself and in his team. I feel like a lot of teams are sleeping on the Celtics right now. They may be old but they should be in the title discussion.
Jason Terry should help the team shore up some of the issues that they had last year. The Celtics have added more depth to a team that simply ran out of gas last year. A guy like JET would have helped them make the Finals last year, so his confidence is needed. They may be the veterans of the Eastern Conference but Boston will be a threat this year.
