DALLAS (AP) — Dallas Mavericks guard Jason Terry went out on a limb, and he did it in a fairly permanent way, in the form of a tattoo.
With one more win, he’ll get to keep that tattoo of the NBA’s championship trophy – plus have the real thing.
Terry had his title hopes injected into his arm in October, during a get-together at teammate DeShawn Stevenson’s house. At the start of the playoffs, Terry vowed to have it removed if the Mavericks didn’t win it all.
Thanks largely to him regaining his shooting touch in that inked-up arm, Terry and the Mavs flew to Miami on Friday closer to a title than ever before in franchise history. It could belong to them as soon as Sunday night.
