After Miami Heat won the championship Juwan Howard was back in training. He said on Friday that he was still undecided on whether to return for the 19th NBA season of his career or call it quits. But his wanting can be judged by him being the first player of the Miami Heat squad back in the gym which obviously means he still feels he has some energy in him to keep on playing.
Juwan Howard is really passionate about the game although he is still undecided. The main reason he is hitting the gym is for him to be ready for whatever he decides. If he decides to go on with his career then he has to be fully fit for it.
Howard will be turning 40 come February 7th. He has been a Heat player for two seasons now making an appearance of 85 in the regular season and 20 in the playoffs but all as a bit part player. Being currently a free agent after is contract had expired he would take an option of staying with the Heat if at all they had interests of signing him once again.
This was the fist pro title for him. He has 16,138 points in his career, which puts him 16th among all the active NBA players and overall 91st in the league history; in reference to STATS LLC.
Howard is taken to be a prized asset among the Heat players. Dwyane Wade once told his teammates later in the game during the NBA finals game which they were playing against Oklahoma City that they needed to keep a good lead so as to ensure Howard got a few minutes to play. They also consider him as a mentor.
Howard said that this was a special moment for the team and he still smiles day in day out. As he walks around people keep on congratulating him and the team for the just ended season accomplishments but this would be the time that they look back at the just ended season and be proud of all the efforts they put in it. No matter what Juwan Howard decides we hope to see him one more season doing his thing.
