38 year old shooting guard Ray Allen is no doubt of the best shooters this league has seen in a very long time. After draining clutch three point shots through out the playoffs, especially the Finals, Allen helped the Miami Heat reach back-to-back NBA championships.
Three time gold medalist and 2x NBA champion has reportedly dropped a little bit of weight. The 17 year veteran weighed in around 206 pounds last season and is now under 200 pounds. Allen weighs in around 197 pounds to be exact.
Allen started a ‘paleo’ diet during the offseason and I’m hearing that he looks to be in the greatest shape of his life. Which is pretty dangerous. Although he’s nearly reaching that 40 year old milestone, Allen has what it takes to play until he’s at least 45 years old.
I highly doubt we’ll see him in the league that long, but it would be nice to watch Ray Allen continue to take the court for another season or two. Even if he’s doing so with the Miami Heat, he’s always been a player that brings fans and players to the edge of their seats whenever he pulls up to shoot.
Ray Allen started the paleo diet. Got down to 197 pounds. “I feel great.”
