Jason Terry Takes Superstition To Its Deranged Limits

The Dallas Mavericks face elimination via sweep on Saturday as they trail the Oklahoma City Thunder 3-0. Jason Terry, a Mavericks guard, is a superstitious fellow who wears his opponents' gym shorts to bed and gets tattoos of championship trophies the season before his team wins a championship. Naturally, Jason Terry, in order to prevent a sweep, applied his superstitious logic. From the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram's Dwain Price.

"I broke every broom in the house. That's a little superstition, so I don't think there will be any sweeps going on." - Mavs G Jason Terry

I hope it works so that we can see his encore, which may entail refusing to give anyone a high-five so that the series won't end in five games.

Also: people own multiple brooms?
