Jason Terry: Rajon Rondo Is Only Celtics Player with Energy
Mavericks guard Jason Terry has never been shy about voicing his opinion or talking trash. Most of the time he talks before and after games, but Wednesday, he threw a jab at the Celtics during the game.
While doing a halftime interview with ESPN, Terry complimented Rajon Rondo while blasting the rest of Boston’s roster.
“He’s the only one with energy on their team,” Terry said. “Everyone else is a little older and they’re not running as fast.”
The Mavs were only up by one at that point, so it really took some balls for Terry to say that. But again, this is Jason Terry — he’s the guy who had enough stones to get a tattoo of the championship trophy before ever winning a title. He’s the same guy that called Matt Barnes the Charminator.
Perhaps picking on the Celtics in-game wasn’t a great idea, but it worked. Dallas won 90-85. Rondo was Boston’s leading scorer with 24 and 7 assists. Terry led Dallas with 18.
