If you thought Ray Allen was about to lay back to a lifestyle of eating ice cream and watching reality TV shows after his retirement from the NBA — well you’d be sorely mistaken.
The 10-time All-Star has kept himself in tip-top shape, and while he might be past the prime age to be a starter in the league, his jump shot looks just as smooth as it did during his 17 years in the league.
Everything from his handles to the perfect pin-drop balance in his form are still there, showing Ray-Ray is still the consummate professional, even after his career has come to an end.
As Allen once said in a self-written piece for The Players’ Tribune:
“God will give you a lot of things in life, but he’s not going to give you your jump shot. Only hard work will do that.”
The 41-year-old is still as shredded as always, even more so with him being a constant advocate for personal fitness and the fight against diabetes — an illness his son nearly died from years ago.
Sunday night I started a juicing cleanse for 2 days because I felt like I needed to detox. Since then I have not had a bite of food and It was tough!!!! My mind is tougher though!!! Don't be controlled by your body's desires to make you wanna eat foods that will continue to take you down that road that you don't wanna go down. Health is wealth!! 195 is what I weighed my freshman year in college, 24 years ago. 😳🤣 I know a lot of you can get back to your playing weight,Lol. It just requires you to sacrifice. Some foods just aren't good for us anymore. The foods we ate as kids are not the same. And more importantly, our bodies change and require us to change what we put into it. 38% of American adults in this country are obese. Obesity has reached epidemic proportions in children and adults in America. We need to reduce these numbers. Change how you eat and you will change your life!!!!!!!!! #carpediem #grownman #beorganic #juicefromtheraw #paleolife #changestartswithyourself #notbadfor41
