Jason Terry Gets to Work, Expects to Fit In Perfectly With Celtics and Fans (Video)


Jason Terry is ready to go, both physically and mentally.

The new Celtics signed shooting guard took part in a Reebok event with fellow NBA players John Wall, Jameer Nelson, Ramon Sessions, Dionte Christmas and others to give young athletes a few training tips. At 34 years old, Terry knows that staying in shape is of the utmost importance in a league dominated by young, athletic players.

"We're here showing the young fellas how to put the work in," Terry said. "Showing them how to work better and more efficient."

Terry showed off the Celtics tattoo he has proudly displayed since getting it early this month, pulling back his left sleeve to reveal the image of the mascot spinning the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy on his finger. He was not quite as bold in his prediction for the upcoming season as he has been in other interviews, but he did say the Celtics "hopefully" will win the championship this season.

Terry is known for his ebullient personality, and he said he looks forward to interacting with the fans at the TD Garden. Nicknamed "Jet," he has been known to put out his arms and swoop around the court after hitting a big shot.

"When I watch [Kevin Garnett], when I watch [Rajon] Rondo, when I watch Paul [Pierce] when they're out there playing, and I see how they react and interact with the fans, that's my game," Terry said. "So I know I'm going to fit in perfectly."

Celtics fans hope to see Jet flying around a lot this season. Check out more from Terry's workout in the video above.
