Reserve guard Jason Terry was so convinced the Dallas Mavericks would get to the NBA Finals this season, he had it printed… in ink… on his body!! The guy tattooed himself before the start of the 2010-11 regular season. This was kind of an inspiration for him and a goal he wanted to achieve with his team. Basketball lines.

To continue telling you guys the tattoo story, a day before a preseason game versus the Orlando Magic, guard DeShawn Stevenson had a gathering for his Mavericks teammates at his house. Stevenson, who has an offseason residence in Orlando, organized a team-building activity at his place where he brought his personal tattoo artist to his house as well as a chef for theMavs’ get-together.

Stevenson’s a big fan of tattoos; he even has his chest, neck and arms covered with ink art. Nevertheless, regardless of all of his tattoos, what he saw teammate Jason Terry do was far-fetched at the time. Terry got one placed on his right biceps of the Larry O’Brien Trophy, given to the winner of the NBA championship. Basketball betting lines.

The tattoo anecdote came up Wednesday night after the Mavericks’ 100-96 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder that got them to the NBA Finals. Dallas is headed to its second NBA Finals appearance in franchise history. In a way, Terry had a sense that this squad was meant to play for the title fight.

The Mavericks are four victories away from a title and are in anticipation of the winner of the Eastern Conference finals between Chicago and Miami. And that tattoo on Terry’s arm is looking like a good decision now. Basketball scores.

Now it’s time to finish the job with actually conquering that Larry O’Brien trophy.
