If Jason Terry looks a bit unusual when his Dallas Mavericks visit Amway Center to take on the Orlando Magic on Friday, you can blame Jameer Nelson.

Nelson and teammate Bill Bellamy bested Terry and Jadakiss in a CrossFit Relay, featuring four staples of the CrossFit routine: a shuttle run, burpee box jumps, air squats, and ring rows. The Magic point guard just barely finished his ring row exercise before Terry, in the process ensuring the 12-year veteran, arguably the league's most superstitious player, won't wear his signature high socks and headband during Friday's game, marking the first time in his career he won't have his beloved accessories.

Had Terry prevailed, Nelson would have had to wear the socks and headband.

The NOC filmed the competition between Team Jameer and Team JET for YouTube. Check out the video below the jump.
