Terry Interested in Playing for the Heat

What a strange season for the Mavs this year. It took Dirk a while to get going, the team struggled early on, and the Odom trade has been a disaster. To make matters worse, Jason Terry is now talking openly about playing for the Heat. Wait, what?

“No question, they need a veteran shooter, a guy who can score besides LeBron (James) and (Dwyane Wade), and they know they can count on. I’m a guy that’s been in this league 13 years, (averaging) 15 points a night, easy. Off the bench or the starting lineup, it doesn’t matter. So I think I’d be an asset to them.” But wouldn’t it be weird joining the Heat after the battles Dallas had with them in the 2006 and the 2011 Finals, the Mavericks losing the first and winning the second? Terry said it wouldn’t. “Not at all,” said Terry, who struggled Thursday, shooting 1-of-10 for three points. “That jersey has a logo on it. It says, ‘NBA.’ No matter what team it is (that Terry is on next season), it doesn’t matter. So I’ll be excited.”
