Jason Terry Wants to Coach Dallas Mavericks After He Retires

Jason Terry

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

Former Dallas Mavericks superstar Jason Terry has been making the rounds of late. First he was on a local Dallas radio show talking about San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich putting snakes and thousands of flies in the Mavericks’ locker room years ago.

These past two nights, though, Terry has brought his charismatic smile to the Fox Sports 1 studio, appearing on Fox Sports Live. With Derek Fisher about to be announced as the new New York Knicks head coach, Terry was asked about the new NBA trend to hire former players with zero coaching experience to be head coaches, which includes Jason Kidd, whom Terry played for this past season on the Brooklyn Nets.

Terry is confident that the city of New York will not eat Fisher alive, which naturally led to Terry being asked if he has any interest himself in coaching after he gets the jersey torn off his back: “No doubt, I got Mark Cuban on speed dial,” said Terry, with a smile.

But “The Jet” is serious. And unlike the quiet, calm Kidd, Terry has the sort of personality and charisma that motivates players around him to jump into a burning building if necessary. So whether Terry winds up coaching in the NBA or if he gets one of those fun TV gigs on TNT or ESPN, he’s going to bring a colorfulness that is fun.

For now, though, Terry is in the final year of his contract with the Sacramento Kings, so Cuban has at least one more year before he gets that call from his former player.

Dirk Nails Game-Winner, Gets Love From Kobe

Kobe Bryant wasn't able to lace up for the Los Angeles Lakers against the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night, but he still managed to make the highlight reels on multiple occasions. After Dirk Nowitzki nailed what turned out to be the game-winning jumper, he stumbled backward into Bryant and received a pat of approval. This encounter is the definition of the saying 'game recognizes game' as the two players are both legends and future Hall of Famers.

Josh Smith Fakes Dirk Nowitzki Out of His Shoes

Josh Smith has returned to the Houston Rockets via trade, and he made the most of his first game back. He scored 16 points off the bench, including this drive on Dirk Nowitzki that made Smith look like Hakeem Olajuwon. Could Ty Lawson and Josh Smith be the spark duo off the bench that rejuvenates this Rockets team?

Watch Kings' Rondo Attempt To Trip Mavs' Williams

Last night's game between the Sacramento Kings and Dallas Mavericks was one of the most entertaining of the season. It was a back-and-forth contest that ended on a Deron Williams three-pointer as time expired in double-overtime. Unfortunately, Williams almost didn't get to take that shot as Rajon Rondo attempted to trip him from the bench earlier in the game which could have caused serious injury. Rondo should be suspended for his actions.
