It would seem most people around the League, be it fans, media, even fellow opposition would be impressed by a 20 game win streak.
Well….. not the Boston Celtics.
Here’s what Terry had to say about it…
Washington Wizards guard Jordan Crawford has been traded to the Boston Celtics today in exchange for the injured Leandro Barbosa, sources confirm. Included in the deal, Jason Collins who will suit up for the Wizards. While Crwaford was seemingly a valuable part of the Wizards’ plan, he has been on the receiving end of reduced minutes behind Bradley Beal and more recently has had four straight DNP-CD’s to his name. Boston’s need for athletic big men have not been the focus of trades this year, but it is thought that Crawford’s ability to register good numbers will help Boston’s back court offense alongside Avery Bradley, Jason Terry, Courtney Lee and Paul Pierce. Leandro Barbosa’s contract stands at only $2.3 Million giving the Wizards room to move under the cap in free agency.
In news this morning Dallas Mavericks veteran guard Jason Terry has signed a 3-year, $15M deal with the Boston Celtics. The Celtics used a $5M trade exception to land Terry in a deal that only further strengthens Boston’s perimeter.

Axl Rose has a bizarre superstition with the letter ‘M’, he refuses to play any city beginning with the scary ‘M’. Christian Bale likes going against superstitions and will walk ‘under’ a ladder when he sees one. Our sports heroes are the same, if a little weirder.
David Beckham will never wear the same pair of boots twice, tennis star Goran Ivanisevic had a strange superstition of having to get up from his chair on the change-over and would try to never step on any of the lines. Off the court, he was even worse. If he won a match at a tournament, he would repeat everything from the previous day – go to the same restaurant, eat the same food and try to talk to the same people. Strange!
