I totally forgot to post about this last night. Yesterday was (arbitrarily) declared Jason Terry Day by the Mavericks blog "The Two Man Game" and was celebrated by Dallas fans everywhere. Here's my favorite passage.

Celebrating 'Jason Terry Day' - Dallas Mavericks, NBA | The Two Man Game

Bill Simmons has a recurring joke he digs out in mailbags: the "All Irrational Confidence Team." For the longest time, Vernon Maxwell was the captain, and a well-deserved one at that. In the story he wrote after Game 6 of the 2011 NBA Finals, however, that captaincy got passed along. The captain’s C was given to the guy who tattooed the Larry O’Brien trophy on his arm before the season at DeShawn Stevenson’s house party. The guy who, after two less-than-stellar Finals games, told the best player in basketball that he’d be shutting him down for the rest of the series — and actually did. The only showoff who’s ever said "Nobody likes a showoff," on national television. The guy who had Top Gun intros at the AAC and an infectious nickname and a never-fail, grin-sparking signature move. The guy who raffled off a championship ring for charity and coached his daughters’ basketball team and ran his mouth constantly.

Yep. I think I'm going to like the Jet Era.
