DALLAS (AP) - Jason Terry has returned to Dallas, eagerly anticipating what figures to be a happy one-night reunion for the Mavericks and a longtime fan favorite.
Terry and his new team, the Boston Celtics, were set to play Friday night in the arena Terry called home for eight years. He played a critical role in the first NBA title for Dallas two years ago.
The veteran guard was known as much for his community involvement as he was the ``Jet'' nickname that came from running down the court with his arms spread like wings after hitting big 3-pointers.
A standing ovation was almost certainly in order for a player Dallas coach Rick Carlisle called ``Mavericks royalty.''
Terry said the return ``feels like home, as it should.''
