Jason Terry Predicts NBA Championship For Boston Celtics In 2012

Jason Terry's belief that he can help Boston bring home another NBA Championship this season is more than skin-deep - or however deep tattoo ink goes, anyway - he reiterated his belief that the Celtics are bound to win a Larry O'Brien Trophy in 2013 in an interview with Boston's CBS affiliate:

"If I looked at our team and what they accomplished last year - they're one game away. They're one game away from going back to the NBA finals, and I think they win it," Terry told WBZ-TV's Steve Burton Thursday at the Reebok Headquarters in Canton.

"This year, put a little ‘Jet Fuel' into the mix, and I think we have the team," laughed a confident Terry.

Terry's always found a way to be extra-cocky and confident, but he's backed up his talk and his pretending-to-be-a-plane with his on-court play: Terry has averaged over 15 points all but two times in his 15 year NBA career and has shot over 34.7 percent from three every year since his rookie year, nailing 37.8 percent of his triples in 2011-2012. And of course, the last time he guaranteed a ring with a tattoo, his prognostication turned out to be right, as his bench play was pivotal in helping the Mavericks to the 2011 NBA Championship. Terry won't fully replace Ray Allen, but he's proven he can contribute on winning teams. If he does win a ring in Boston, it had better come soon, as Terry is 34, and the rest of the squad aren't exactly spring chickens either.
