Terry Rozier pinpoints shot that led to birth of Scary Terry nickname with Celtics

Ever wonder where the “Scary Terry” nickname came from for Terry Rozier? Allow the Celtics guard to explain.

In a lengthy interview with GQ — how many backup point guards get those? — Rozier pointed to the exact shot that spawned the name and sold 10,000 t-shirts. It was his steal and dunk at the buzzer to beat the Pacers in Indianapolis last winter.

From the interview:

I love scary movies (and) Scream is my favorite. The way he talks on the phone, talks stuff and all that. (Then) the season plays out, we play Indiana Pacers and I got that last steal and dunk. People started calling me Scary Terry around that time. I was in L.A. and one of the guys in my agency who does marketing sent me shirts. It had the Jason mask on there. And I was like, “We need to get the Scream mask on there.” Then, around the time the playoffs, we started selling them out.

People don’t know that I don’t really like the name Scary Terry. I like it when the fans call me it. But outside of basketball, none of my friends call me Scary Terry. But I don’t want nobody to think it was just for that year. I feel like it’s kind of my name in the league now.

So there you have it. With Kyrie Irving’s future beyond this season up in the air — the Knicks are expected to make an aggressive push — Scary Terry could have value in Boston well into the future. In the meantime, here’s a look at the shot that started it all.
