    What a weird guy

    MIAMI -- The Dallas Mavericks' flop against the Miami Heat in the 2006 NBA Finals isn't on Jason Terry's mind, but a piece of that series was on his body the night before Game 1 on Tuesday night.

    Terry always wears a pair of the opponent's game shorts to bed the night before games, a superstition that dates to his college days.

    That didn't change Monday night, when Terry slipped on a pair of Miami Heat shorts.

    Only these weren't any Heat shorts. These were a pair given to Terry by Gary Payton after Miami beat Dallas to win the NBA championship in 2006.

    Any nightmares?

    "Gary Payton gave me some back when they beat us," said Terry, the only player other than Dirk Nowitzki remaining on the Mavericks' roster from the 2006 Finals team. "I slept good."

    Terry admittedly is "very superstitious."

    He recently said he'd remove the tattoo of the Larry O'Brien Trophy from the inside of his right biceps if the Mavericks don't beat the Heat in the Finals, saying it would be bad luck if he didn't.

    Terry had the tattoo placed there prior to the start of this season.

    Wearing another mans game shorts made him sleep better? That is not superstition. He has probably never washed those pants either.

    He's done this since college. He wears the shorts of the opposing team every night before a game.

    Superstitions are silly.

    One man's superstition is another man's religion.

    You think you're clever - but I'm pretty sure you didn't get where I was coming from at all in that post.

    I bet Terry must be feeling quite silly about the Payton's shorts after game one.

    Besides, he's wearing the wrong shorts. Dude's been retired for a minute now. He should be wearing Wade's shorts or Howards or someone from the current squad.

    Clearly Terry doesn't know his superstitions.

    Lol. Did you see the Joakim Noah thread? You should check that one out, then you'll understand what I did here. ;)
