There is only one Jet, and it's Kenny Smith ~ Rename Jason Terry

I like the Dallas Mavericks, and I like Jason Terry, but let's make something clear.  There is ONLY one Jet and it's Kenny "the Jet" Smith. 

Met Kenny "the Jet" Smith after Western Conf Finals, 2010
If you ask me, Jason Terry needs a new nickname immediately.  It's disrespectful.  Seriously, what's next?  Are we going to have another "Dr.", "Worm", "Spider", "Microwave", and "Magic", etc.?  I sure hope not!

People (i.e. who think this is no big deal) will argue that it's only a nickname.  However, I'd argue that what we call a person is very important.  Someone's name and nickname help define a person's identity. 

Honestly, if I was Kenny Smith, I'd be upset about the identity theft.
