Indeed. Terry played his first NBA game on Nov. 2, 1999 – when Vaughn was a mere two-years old. Now in his 19th pro season, Terry, aka The Jet, makes it abundantly clear there’s still fuel left in his tank and that he fully intends on playing next season as well. “Oh, yeah, I’m going to keep playing,’’ Terry said. “Next season would be No. 20. I want to play 20 years. That’s the goal I set for myself. “I’m a very goal-oriented guy and I’m going to make sure that happens.’’

Listening to some of Terry’s teammates, they wouldn’t mind having Terry be their teammates for years to come. They claim Terry remains a solid contributor and hasn’t let Father Time render him a mere cheerleader. “When he plays, he’s still keeps up with the guys at his position,’’ Bucks center Thon Maker said. Added center John Henson: “He can still play. He can move; he can guard, he can shoot it.

Considering Jason Terry is one of the oldest players in the NBA at 39 years old, there has been speculation this could be his last season and that he would then pursue a coaching job either at the college or NBA level. Terry emphatically squelched that speculation, telling me, “No. No. I’m going to play two more years, God willing. Actually, I AM going to play two more years.’’ Terry has played reasonably well this season while coming off the bench for the Bucks. He’s appeared in 47 games, averaging 3.6 points and 17.1 minutes
