Jason Terry to remove trophy tattoo if Mavs lose

Dallas Mavericks guard Jason Terry says he will remove his tattoo of the Larry O'Brien trophy if the Miami Heat win the 2011 NBA Finals.jason-terry-tat  Posted by Ben Golliver.

In case you hadn't heard, Dallas Mavericks guard Jason Terry got a tattoo of the Larry O'Brien Trophy -- the gold orb trophy thing that goes to the team who wins the NBA title -- on the inside of his right bicep. (Pictured to the right.) Terry got inked prior to the season as a way to motivate himself reports

"Everybody laughed and thought it was a joke at the time, but then when they saw me actually get it they were like, 'This boy's serious,'" Terry said. "And our whole conversation was about right now, about us getting to this point and winning it all.

With the Mavericks now poised to face the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals, reality and regret regarding the tattoo is starting to set in for Terry. The obvious question: What happens if the Heat beat the Mavericks? It's going to be pretty awkard to have a tattoo of something you didn't win on your arm forever, right?

Indeed, reported on Sunday that Terry said he will remove the tattoo should the Mavericks up come short. 
"It symbolized the fact we had a realistic shot of getting there." Terry said Sunday before the team departed for Miami. "If I didn't think we had a chance, I definitely wouldn't have put that on there. ... For me, it's something I have to sleep with, something I wake up with. I definitely know it's going to hurt worse if I have to take this thing off."

Yep, if Dallas doesn't win the trophy, look for Terry to get it removed.

"It means it was bad luck." Terry said. "I'm very superstitious."
That would be the single most depressing tattoo removal of all time. Maybe there's a way the artist could just alter it rather than remove it. Maybe a tweak to make it look like the Eiffel Tower or the Leaning Tower of Pisa? Or maybe the Space Needle -- an homage to Terry's hometown of Seattle?

It's a little disappointing Terry is already considering the possibility of removing the tattoo before the Finals has even started. What a perfect opportunity to guarantee a Dallas victory: "This ink isn't going anywhere!" Now that would have been awesome.

Im 28... so, how old r u again Wankertoholt? 45? or 50? Loser. Americans are all 'cool'? Wow, that's an amazing stat, where did you read that? I am Canadian, none of us are 'cool'. I wish I could be you so bad Wankertoholt, you are just so smooth. Your 5 hit is weak Wanker, old and weak. Back to the drawing board for you Wanker, the good news is you have nothing but time. I know you have no girlfriend/wife/friens you respond after a few minutes of all my posts. Are you that infatuated with me? I should be flattered I suppose, but it feels creepy and wrong, kinda like your obsession with Kobe. Please just go back to bed, or stick your head in the oven, one or the other. You are truly useless,

LilRichy:  No as the other side of the pillow here...that is the way we Americans are...COOL.  No tough guy either.  I am not the hater sitting at my computer creating hate mantras about Kobe because I hate my pathetic life. are a loser.  Your guess that I am 45-50 is way too low...I am 72.  Or maybe 27.  Or maybe 12.  Lets just say this bud, I guarantee you are older than me.  How old are you loser?  You are a sad sort.  I actually feel sorry for people like yourself. 

Here is the difference between us close attention...I am a LAKER fan..Kobe plays for the Lakers so I cheer for Kobe.  You are a Raptor fan...but you have a man crush with an NBA player who doesn't even play for your team.  Seriously, this is your sentence:  "I LIKE LBJ because he is an amazing basketball player."  So, you like a guy because he is a good player.  I like the way Kobe plays basketball, I am not star struck enough like yourself to say I like Kobe..  I don't know Kobe so how can I like him.  How many times have you met LBJ?  Does LBJ know you like him?  Maybe you should send him a letter expressing your desires for him.  HAHA..  You love LBJ in such a odd fashion that it is scary. 

You must be a lonely, bald, fat Canadian who lives vicariously (again "I LIKE LBJ") through an NBA player who wouldn't give you the time of day because you aren't in his posse.  I am not staring at a lifesize Kobe fathead.  But I bet you wish you were swallowing LBJ's lifesize fathead.  Have some respect for yourself bro.  LBJ doesn't care about you the way that you LIKE him.  Move on.  I think he already has a girlfriend.  Too easy again their LilSnitchy.  You can't hang bro. 

Keep denying your multiple identities.  Just make sure you keep them straight when responding to my posts.  You have made several mistakes in the past that has exposed you.  You can't keep up LilRichy.  Go back to the NHL pages.

 Wow, that's some pent up anger there Wankertoholt... Thank god you are just some fat slob sitting behind a keyboard, that doesn't take any real guts. You must just get abused in the real world don't you? You save it all up inside so you can become Internet Tough Guy when you get home. How old are you Wanker? You've never responded when I ask, Im guessing you are around 45 or 50, and I would gladly take the opportunity to beat your middle aged a5s in person, so take it down a notch there slugger. As for those other profiles.... I really have no idea what you are basing that on, hopefully it's not simply because those guys think you are a useless tool as well (if that were the case I guess Im actually posting as the other hundreds of people on CBS that  hate you too) Do you think people value your opinion? I am not even a Heat fan, I like LBJ because he is an amazing basketball player. You failed to mention how you come to KObes aid every time someone posts a mean article about him. I bet you are staring at your life sized Kobe fathead right now. Meanwhile Kobe is probably young enough to be your son, now that`s pathetic. I hope you don`t treat your kids and grandkids like that Warner... do they hate you too? I bet they do, hence the anger issues. You should start doing tai chi or something Wanker, it's all the rage with the seniors, you might like it. I am a LeBron fan, what is your deal with Kobe? Because half the time you sound like a star struck teenage hero worshipper and its kinda scary. I'm gonna wrap this up because Im done abusing you for the night, Im getting ready to hit the town Wanker, thats what young people sometimes do at night.... Hopefully they get a killer game of bridge or crib going in your retirement home to take your mind off your man crash 24 for a while. Please seek help, and keep up the internet tough guy act, it's hilarious.

LilRichyRiches:  Tell us all how LBJ's nuts taste.  They are constantly in your mouth.  This article isn't even about your precious LePunk, but your jock sniffing ways won't let you keep him out of it.  What a jock sniffing loser.   Why don't your bring your other identities (Brixk, Theshman, SprockLives) out of the closet because your LilRichy act is growing old.  Nobody cares about what you think.  Everyone realizes that you are just a guy who immortalizes LBJ and hates on everybody else.  If you want to be taken seriously take LBJ's meat out of your throat and come up with some original thoughts.

OOPS...go ahead and snitch me off again to CBS you LOSER.

 I don't see anyone rushing to comment about how stupid Terry is for getting the trophy tattooed on his arm. But just to illustrate the double standard LBJ faces, can you imagine the backlash and hatred that would be flowing if he got the same tattoo? Something to think about, Keep hating, fools.
