Jason Terry Promises Celtics Championship (Often)

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.

Green Street " Jason Terry pulls a Mickael Pietrus, guarantee a Celtics championship this season every chance he gets

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.
