The Mavs are focused, they sure want to win. Despite the Dallas Mavericks’ collapse against the Miami Heat in the 2006 NBA Finals, Jason Terry ain’t thinking about that and he is not carrying that on his mind. Nevertheless, Terry will carry something that is part of his opponent during this series… and no, it is not the Larry O’Brien trophy tattoo that we are talking about. Odds.

What Terry is taking or in this case wearing; is a pair of the rival team’s game shorts to bed the night before games, a superstition, or let’s say a lucky charm or habit that he likes to stick with; which dates to his college days.

This superstition didn’t change Monday night, when Terry slipped on a pair of Miami Heat shorts. Only these weren’t any Heat shorts. These were a pair given to Terry by none other than Gary “The Glove” Payton after Miami defeated Dallas to conquer the NBA title back in 2006. Scores.

“Gary Payton gave me some back when they beat us,” said Terry, the only player other than Dirk Nowitzki remaining on the Mavericks’ roster from the 2006 Finals team. Terry admittedly is “very superstitious.”

He recently said he’d remove the tattoo of the Larry O’Brien Trophy from the inside of his right arm if his team doesn’t beat the Heat in the Finals, saying it would be bad luck if he didn’t. Las Vegas odds.

Terry had the tattoo placed there prior to the start of this season.
