In the August 2011 issue of D Magazine, we awarded then-Dallas Mavericks player Jason Terry the distinction of “Best Tattoo.”
Has he now sullied that memory?
When asked his NBA predictions for the upcoming season on Monday, all Jason Terry did was point to the freshly minted tattoo on his left biceps.
It’s a picture of a green-clad Boston Celtics leprechaun sitting atop the Larry O’Brien NBA championship trophy. Terry had a similar photo tattooed on his right biceps prior to the 2010-11 season, and his Dallas Mavericks went on to win the NBA title that season.
Now that he’s about to enter his first season with the Celtics, Terry is hoping for similar Nostradamus-like results.
“I’ve already got my predictions right here,” Terry said, pointing to his biceps. “Now it’s a little Celtic man.
“It’s healing up now, but it’s a Celtic man and he’s got the trophy spinning. That’s nothing to spite what we did in Dallas, but I think we’ve got a team where we’re going to do it again – there’s no doubt in my mind.”
