Jason Terry

When we look at Jason Terry’s career and prospects to be a coach, we love that he won a ring playing for Rick Carlisle on the Dallas Mavericks in 2010 and later was a contributor for the Boston Celtics under Doc Rivers. With 15 years and counting, Terry has had a solid NBA career. After playing for the Brooklyn Nets and Sacramento Kings this past season, we think Terry should begin evaluating how to prolong his hoops career. We sincerely think he has the tenacity to be an NBA head coach. Warning, though: don’t mouth off to him. Even as a coach in a suit, Terry would chew you out. (Photo: Sam Greenwood/Getty Images)
