Jason Terry's All-Star 3-point campaign bricks

By Jeff Caplan

Jason Terry won't need to get another tattoo.

The Mavericks shooting guard said he'd get one that would say he'd win the 3-point contest during All-Star weekend if selected, just as he forecasted Dallas' championship last year when he got a Larry O'Brien trophy inked on his biceps in the preseason.

The list of six competitors for the Feb. 25 event in Orlando was released today and Terry, who leads the Mavs in 3-pointers made, was not on it. Defending champ James Jones of the Miami Heat will go against teammate Mario Chalmers, Kevin Love of the Timberwolves, Joe Johnson of the Hawks, Ryan Anderson of the hometown Magic and Anthony Morrow of the Nets.

Terry has participated in two All-Star 3-point contests and was knocked out in the first round of both in 2006 and 2007. He's unsuccessfully lobbied a couple of times in recent years to get another shot

The 34-year-old veteran sharpshooter has shot the 3-ball at a respectable 37.6 percent (59-of-157) this season. Vince Carter is the Mavs' top 3-pointer shooter percentage-wise, knocking down 46.1 percent (35-of-76).
