Amazing that Mavericks sixth man Jason Terry hasn't turned into a jumbo JET after the soda and wing-joint endorsements. Now the shooting guard has found a way to combine his love of food and charitable causes.
Today the Hard Rock Cafe Dallas will unveil the Jason Terry Legendary Burger, available through the end of the Mavs regular season. A portion of proceeds from the sale of each 10-oz Angus burger will benefit Gilda's Club North Texas. In addition to proceeds from Terry's limited-edition burger, the restaurant and Terry will donate $100 to Gilda's Club for each three-pointer that No. 31 sinks throughout the season.
