“I’ve had a chance to [review] it, and it was one of my better ones,” James said. “The fact that it happened to J.T. made it that much sweeter. – LeBron on his dunk on Terry
LeBron took great joy in seeing Jason Terry laying on the floor after his “murderous” dunk. He said he was glad it happened to Terry because of comments Terry made about the Heat. Once LeBron hears the Jet’s latest comments about him and the Heat I’m sure LeBron will be looking forward to laying Terry out on the floor again.
Here’s a couple quotes from the ESPN article.
“Hey, he picked his poison. They put him on me to shut me down in the NBA Finals in 2011 and he couldn’t get the job done,” Terry said. “Hopefully, he’ll have another chance this year in the Eastern Conference finals — or wherever we match up — but I’m telling you right now, I love us. I love the way we’re built. We miss [Rajon] Rondo, we miss [Jared] Sullinger, but with this team we have, we have a chance.”
“It really doesn’t matter [when in the playoffs we face the Heat]. There’s no preference,” Terry said in an interview Friday on Boston sports radio station WEEI. “But you know at some point, I don’t want to say that it’s fixed, [but] I think it’s going to happen. We are going to see them and it’s going to be fireworks.”
“[It’s] not even LeBron personally. It’s just the Miami Heat. Is it the red and black? Maybe. I hate that color,” Terry told WEEI on Friday. “I just don’t like them. Let me tell you like this: It goes back to [the] 05-06 [season when Miami beat Dallas in the NBA Finals]. And it doesn’t matter who’s in those Miami Heat uniforms. Let’s just be real: You’re up 2-0 and they come back and win four straight games and you lose the NBA Finals. So LeBron inherited something bigger than the matchup of he and I. It’s about the Miami Heat and that organization.”
“Social media today, it’s just unbelievable,” he said. “But I will say, I did get a kick out of the one when I was laying in the coffin, and the pallbearers were [Kevin Garnett] and Paul Pierce. That was hilarious. It’s all in fun, it’s all in the spirit of the sport. But I’ll tell you right now, I would love to see Miami in the playoffs, because the road to the championship goes through the champion. We’re fired up. We love that matchup.”
