Who is Jason Eugene Terry?




Who is Jason Eugene Terry? The professional basketball world knows Jason Terry as an American professional basketball player playing with the NBA's Dallas Mavericks. He plays shooting guardalthough he also can play point guard. His nickname, "JET," derives from his initials.[1] Terry won an NBA Championship in 2011 when the Dallas Mavericks defeated the Miami Heat in six games on June 12, 2011.

Early life

Jason was born September 15, 1977 in Seattle, Washington. He was one of ten children raised by his mother, Andrea Cheatham and his father, Curtis Terry.[1] One of his brothers, Curtis, plays college basketball for UNLV. On February 2, 2007 Terry's number (31) was retired at [[Franklin High School (Washington)|Franklin High School].[2]

College career

In 1997, Terry won an NCAA Championship with the University of Arizona. His teammates included Mike Bibby, Michael Dickerson, and Miles Simon.[3] Terry has announced that he would like to be an assistant coach with his old college basketball team once he retires from playing in the NBA.

NBA

Terry was drafted out of the University of Arizona by the Atlanta Hawks in the 1999 NBA Draft as the 10th overall selection. In the 2000–01 season, Terry emerged as the team's best player, averaging 19.7 points and leading the club in steals, assists and free throws made. He played 3,089 minutes. After spending his first five seasons with the Hawks, Terry was traded to the Mavericks just prior to the start of the 2004–05 season. He had a mediocre first few months with the Mavericks but eventually came into his own, putting up solid numbers and by the end of the season earning his spot as the Mavs' number one guard.
In the 2004–05 NBA Playoffs, Terry averaged 17.5 points on 51% shooting while hitting 49% from three-point range in his first playoff run. Yet his team failed to advance to the conference finals, losing its second-round series 4–2 to Nash's Phoenix Suns. In Game 6 of that series Terry got in a confrontation with teammate Dirk Nowitzki, who was frustrated by his own erratic play during the playoffs, for committing the crucial error of backing off of Steve Nash in the final seconds of 
regulation with his team up by 3, who subsequently hit the 3-point shot to send the game into overtime resulting eventually in the ousting of the Mavericks from the playoffs.
In the final seconds of Game 5 of the 2005–06 NBA Western Conference playoff semi-finals against the San Antonio Spurs, Terry in closeups was shown punching opposing guard and former teammate Michael Finley in the groin. On May 18, 2006, Terry was suspended without pay from Game 6. Despite losing that game, the Mavericks were able to close out the series in Game 7 to
 advance to the Western Conference Finals. In Game 6 of the 2006 NBA Finals, Terry shot 7 for 25 from the field and 2 for 11 from three-point territory as the cold shooting Mavericks were eliminated in 6 games by the Miami Heat.
On July 1, 2006, after spending only 12 hours on the free-agent market, Terry agreed to a 6-year contract to stay with the Dallas Mavericks.[4]
Terry won the NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award in 2009
On May 8, 2011, in a playoff game against the Los Angeles Lakers, Terry tied an NBA playoff
 record with nine made three pointers. He joined Rex Chapman, Vince Carter, and Ray Allen in achieving this record. Terry missed only one of the three point field goals he attempted.[5] He finished the game 10 of 14 with 32 points.[6]

Playing style



On offense, Terry relies mainly on his shooting skills and speed. He is regarded as one of the fastest players in the league, and is an elite three-point shooter. He often pulls up for jump shots off the dribble, making him difficult to guard. He is known as a very streaky player, as his shooting accuracy can change dramatically from game to game. On defense, he is an average on-ball defender, but has great ability to come up with steals which leads to many easy fast break points.

Personal life

Terry and his wife, Johnyika, have four daughters; Jasionna, Jalayah, Jaida and Jasa Azuré.[7] His younger sister, Lyric, used to live with them in Dallas.[8]
Terry has the number 206 tattooed on his chest, the area code of Seattle, his hometown. He also has a tattoo of Underdog.[8]
Terry is the cousin of Minnesota Timberwolves forward Martell Webster.
