Jason Terry is still trying to figure out why he contested LeBron James on epic poster dunk


Jason Terry played in six cities throughout his 19-year NBA career. He's been to and won the NBA Finals. He's in the top-10 players of all time in terms of three-pointers made and attempted. He's played in the ninth most NBA games out of every player in history. His teammates range from Dikembe Mutombo to Dirk Nowitzki to Giannis Antetokounmpo.

But kids who are lucky enough to meet Terry don't ask him any questions related to all of those incredible accolades and experiences. What do they ask?

"How did it feel for LeBron to dunk on you like that?" Terry told Master Tesfatsion on Bleacher Report's "Untold Stories" as he shrugged. "Like, come on man, get out of here!"

But, despite his clear sense of annoyance at the topic, I simply have to ask... what was The Jet thinking?

"...What made me jump is what I'm trying to figure out!" Terry said. "There's no... like even if you did jump! And I jumped, man, and he lifted me on his knee and I was still going up with him.

"I elevated, I was in the rim."

But the in-game experience may not have been the worst part.

"For three weeks, I was checking my phone and people were sending me messages — man, you okay? — like numbers I haven't heard from in eight years," Terry said. "They even said that Wikipedia, they said that was my death day and had the date and everything on it."

If Terry's legacy isn't as an inspiration for all those kids he's helping to train to become the best basketball players possible, maybe he'll at least inspire them to put their pride aside and let a dunker like LeBron go up without contesting him.
