This is my take on what many Tweeted and said about Terry “forgetting” to thank Lute Olson during his speech:
Jason Terry referred to Olson in his speech, saying "I got my coach here" That's all he has to say. Had many coaches. Olson is his coach.
The tribute to Jason “The JET” Terry from T.J. McConnell, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Stanley Johnson was a sight to behold.
McConnell’s tribute to Terry with the knee-high “CATS” socks added a nice tough to the evening ..
McConnell’s appreciation …
@jasonterry31 thank you for everything you've done for this program and Tucson!! Tonight was much deserved and it was great having you back!
Terry’s NBA side of life also acknowledged him …
