NBA Finals Tattoos: From Jason Terry's Trophy Hope to Mario Chalmers's "Mister Clutch"

That Jason Terry sure has some chutzpah. The Dallas Maverick's sixth man has a tattoo on his arm of the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy. Only problem is, neither Terry nor the Dallas Mavericks have ever won that trophy. Of course, they aim to change that starting tonight when they tussle with the Miami Heat in Game 1 of the NBA Finals at American Airlines Arena.

Terry's tat made national news with the shooting guard saying he'll remove it if they fail to win the title. We have a couple shops he can make a reservation at. But Terry's ink is only one of dozens that adorn Heat and Maverick players. Follow the jump for a picture presentation, including LeBron's Akron love to a weird goblin-type thing on Caron Butler's arm.
