Although his 2018 season came to an end at the hands of Terry Rosier and the Boston Celtics. It seems Jason Terry has been in the league for decades, and somehow, he ends up in the playoffs every year. He’s 40 years old and has already said he was going to play next year. A man who made is living on being the 6th man, and has made the 6th man a relevant position in the NBA, is doing it again at 40. He has been a 6th man since he won a National Championship at the University of Arizona in 1997 with Mike Bibby. Terry also told Hall of Fame coach Lute Olson that year he should start Myles Simon and bring him off the bench. That is the selfless act that makes Jason Terry special.
Jason Terry’s legacy began far before he became one of the top 6th men in NBA history. He’s been a NBA Champion, 6th man award in 2009, NCAA Champion, PAC 10 Player of the year in ’99, and 1st team all-american. Terry plans to play next season, would be his 20th season, only 7 other players have played 20 seasons.
Coach, we’ve got to get Miles back in the starting lineup. Coach, put me on the bench. I’ll be the sixth man. – Jason Terry to Coach Olson in 1997- National Title Team
Jason Terry has had a very illustrious basketball career from college to the professional level. Doesn’t matter what team he plays on, the man wins and hits clutch shots! He wants to stick around with the Bucks in 2019 because he wants to see what that young group can do. He is one of the best teammates you can ever ask for. He plays for the name on the front of the jersey, not for what’s on his back.
