Jason Terry: I Expect Cheers in Dallas Return
Boston Celtics Jason Terry, a featured member of the Dallas Mavericks’ two Finals teams, expects to hear a lot of cheers during his return to the American Airlines Center on Friday night.
“Mainly because I’ve got about 100 tickets,” Terry joked, “so my cheering section will be in the building.”
The reality, as Dallas Head Coach Rick Carlisle said about a man he called “Mavericks royalty,” is that Terry is among the most beloved players in franchise history.
Several high-profile members of the Mavs organization, including owner Mark Cuban, Carlisle and forward Dirk Nowitzki, have encouraged fans to welcome Terry back with a standing ovation when he checks into Friday night’s game.
