Jason Terry on Celtics: ‘We’re legit; we are for real’

Jason Terry once again oozing confidence after the Celtics hosted an open practice Sunday at the Garden.

On Celtics-Heat rivalry: ‘€œI’€™ll never forget ‘€™05-06 for me [when the Heat beat his Mavericks in Game 6 of the 2006 NBA finals]. I should be a two-time champion right now, but it wasn’€™t so. I’€™ll never forget that feeling, walking off that court in Game 6 in Dallas, when the confetti dropped on our head. I like to remember winning the championship, but what sticks in my mind more than anything is when we lost. I’€™ve gotta believe it’€™s a feeling similar to what Boston felt last year in Game 7, so I come right into the rivalry, I’€™m yearning for it and that’€™s game No. 1. Whether it was Miami or somebody else, it’€™s just basketball, it’€™s the season and it’€™s Game 1.’€

On C’€™s title chances: ‘€œA lot of times when you see your team on paper before the season, you’€™re like, ‘€˜OK, we might have a chance.’€™ But as we worked through the September month, which was earlier than usual, into training camp, the trip to Europe to our last practice today, we’€™re legit; we are for real. And I think to a man we are a very tough team. I think our bench is deep, but our starting lineup is a beast. These are champions. These are guys who know what they want, and the ultimate goal is to win a championship.’€
