This isn’t exactly Jason Terry calling his shot by getting a Larry O’Brien trophy tattooed on his bicep before a championship season ever began, but it’s fairly cool nonetheless.

Marco Belinelli was a free agent acquisition of the Spurs last summer, and appeared in 80 regular season games while averaging 11.4 points in 25.2 minutes of action, and shooting a career-best 43 percent from three-point distance.

He played sparingly in the Finals, and managed to get on the floor for just 19 minutes in total over the last three games of the series. But the season as a whole was a positive, and one that he certainly contributed to -- so in his eyes, that warranted commemorating the occasion with a large tattoo on his left bicep.
