DALLAS _ It’s been four days since the Dallas Mavericks visited the White House and met President Barack Obama.
But guard Jason Terry is still beaming from what he calls one of the greatest and more memorable days of his life.
“It was just an incredible experience,’’ Terry said after this morning’s shoot around. “But for me being an African American and meeting the first black president, it was something that was historical for my entire family.’’
In a way, for Terry, meeting President Obama was an ever greater feat that winning an NBA title.
“I talked to my grandmother right after it and she was just so proud of me and the accomplishments that I’ve achieved,’’ Terry said. “And just being there and being able to shake the president’s hand, and then seeing his reaction.
“It was a genuine reaction, it was real. And when he shook your hand he spoke directly to you, which means he knows who you are and what you stand for.’’
