Jason Terry Tattooed Championship Trophy on His Arm

Jason Terry was so convinced that it was his (and the Dallas Mavericks’ time) to win a title, he had the NBA championship trophy tatted on his bicep prior to this season. The Star-Telegram reports: “Before Jason Kidd, the only point guard to lead the Dallas Mavericks to the NBA Finals was Jason Terry. Not Steve Nash. Not Derek Harper. Not Sam Cassell. Not Nick Van Exel. Jason Terry. That was in 2006, when Terry was the starting point guard who guided the Mavericks to the franchise’s first trip to the NBA Finals. Terry averaged 22 points and shot 47.8 percent from the field (54 of 113) in the ’06 Finals, which the Miami Heat won in six games. Since then, Terry has reinvented himself while becoming a standout sixth man. And now he and the Mavericks are back in the NBA Finals. Terry was so adamant about getting back to the Finals that during a team get-together before this season, he had a tattoo artist draw a picture of the NBA trophy on his right biceps. ‘Everybody laughed and thought it was a joke at the time, but then when they saw me actually get it they were like, ‘This boy’s serious,’ Terry said. ‘And our whole conversation was about right now, about us getting to this point and winning it all. ‘It’s been a great playoff run for us so far. But everybody knows what this next step means.’”

    i am highly disappointed in how late you guys are reporting this

    Actually, the only point guard to lead the Mavs to the NBA Finals before JKidd was Devin Harris…

    Devin Harris was a rookie coming off the bench

    ….I REALLLY hope bad luck don’t come to the Mavs because of this. I think Dirk deserves the ring a little more than Lebron

  • Tyrant56

    Well, if you never win it will you get it removed?

    Now I look like a SLAM nerd but it was in the post about Dirk saying “this was a great comeback for us” after they came back from 15 (the first time). But it was just a sentence or two at the end…
