Everyone knows Jason Terry is psyched to be a Celtic, but he may already be taking on the helpful personality of some of his new teammates. According to a Dionte Christmas tweet from earlier today, JET seems to be taking the young Celtics’ player under his wing.
I could be reading into this too much, as it could easily just be a workout between a couple teammates. But the fact that JET took out time to specifically work with a young up and coming player fighting for a spot on the roster shows me something. Not only does JET make bold NBA championship guarantees in tattoo ink on his body, he also puts in the necessary work to make his team capable of backing them up.
Christmas and JET share some of the same skills on the court, so they could make a good workout tandem. Both are capable of lighting it up from 3-point range and can handle the ball when called upon.
Who knows? Maybe this workout will mean absolutely nothing in a few weeks and Christmas won’t even make the final roster. Or possibly, Christmas will become a decent rotational player off the bench for the C’s and develop a close friendship with JET like Avery Bradley did with KG.
A man can dream, and I hope that Dionte Christmas soaks up every bit of knowledge Terry offers him. I’ve been a supporter of Dionte Christmas since this past summer league and I think we’ll all be happy if he becomes even half the player JET is today.
