MIAMI, FL - JUNE 12: Jason Terry #31 of the Dallas Mavericks shows off his tattoo of the Larry O'Brien trophy on his arm in the locker room after the Mavericks won 105-95 against the Miami Heat in Game Six of the 2011 NBA Finals at American Airlines Arena on June 12, 2011 in Miami, Florida.

Jason Terry is as subtle as a sledgehammer and as humble as a peacock. So it is no real surprise that he's pretty much promising that the Celtics will win the championship this year to just about anyone that will listen.
By now, you’ve probably seen Terry’s new tattoo on his left biceps of the C’s logo. "There’s the lucky leprechaun," he told WBZ-TV’s Steve Burton during an interview Thursday at Canton’s Reebok Headquarters that will air Sunday night on Sports Final, "and he’s spinning the Larry O’Brien trophy, which we will win this year."
"Looking at our roster and what Danny [Ainge] has put together, we have a good team," he said. "A solid core of veteran guys, two Hall of Famers, one of the best point guards in the league — the best if you ask me in Rajon Rondo — and a good nucleus of young guys that are going to have to play and help us out."
I already like the Jet era.
