Here's an excerpt from Jason Terry's diary over at ESPN Boston:

It didn't take me long to embrace being a Celtic. I hate whoever they hate. The Lakers are number one up there and the Heat aren't too far behind. Doc tells us every day to think about the Heat. Not only does he tell us, but the film plays over and over if you go to the practice facility. Before practice and after practice, that series [2012 Eastern Conference Finals] is playing over and over on the television. We start off the season against them (Oct. 30 in Miami). Obviously the road to the championship goes through the champions and that's the Miami Heat. I take it on. I take it on personally. This is just a part of me, my make up, and my character. I'm just so happy to be on a team with guys who are just as passionate as I am because that's how I play every day. You know Kevin Garnett is probably the most passionate guy I've ever been around. I've only been around a month and a-half, but he plays the way I do.

The Jet also details the forming of the Wolfpack in Europe and wanting to play for Doc Rivers. From mentoring Dionte Christmas and the other rookies to hitting the streets searching for autographs and learning the Boston accent, JT has been a model citizen for the Celtics and a welcome addition to the team.
