Terry Has Strep; Will Play Friday

Yes, Reyshawn Terry has strep throat but the good news is he will play this coming Friday against USC.  All that basically means is Terry is presently being pumped full of experimental antibiotics which may or may not result is certain unpleasant side effects and a 60 inch vertical leap.

Seriously, his condition actually had me worried a bit.  I started having flashbacks to Jeff Lebo playing the 1987 East Regional Final with the flu and shooting 0-5 from beyond the arc.  I am convinced at this point, this UNC team is centered on a core of three individuals: Hansbrough, Lawson, and Terry.  Wright and Ellington can undoubtedly be huge contributors offensively and Ginyard, Miller, Frasor, Green, and Thompson will also have the roles on both ends, but I think it rises and falls on the backs of the first three, especially Terry since he is can defend and bring all kinds of versatility on offense.

Get well soon, Reyshawn, real soon.

    I prefer to envision another Tar Heel… MJ. In Game 5 of the 1997 finals. I can see Terry drapped around Tyler after dropping 38 on the Trojans and being too tired to walk!

    Also, he good news about strep is, once diagnosed, the treatment is very straight forward, effective, and fast. WIthin 24 hours of taking antibiotics the fever should break and people are usually symptom free within 2-3 days. This is usually where people mess up. a small % of the bacteria that cause the strep will be resistant to the first wave of antibiotics and need to be continually blasted for the next 7 days to fully eradicate. Most people feel better and stop after five or six days. Then they wonder why 3 weeks later they have a raging case of strep, that is now antibiotic resistant!! So Reyshawn, if you are reading this: TAKE ALL OF YOUR MEDECINE!!! 😉

    Yeah out of all of MJ’s superhuman performances, that one was up there. As we all know, his brand of basketball was beyond magical on so many different occasions that it would be impossible for me to say which was the very best one, but again, that one was definitely up there.
