A lot of NBA players slowly go out of shape physically once they retire. Those, who had a good shooting touch during their playing days usually are able to knock down a shot or two even a few years after retirement.
Larry Bird would still be beating most of the guys in the gym as far as freethrows go, while Chris Mullin is nearly unmatched in three pointers, as he has proved before.
Speaking of those, who still have some game left in them, Rasheed Wallace, who retired after the 2012-13 season (while originally retiring after the 2009-10 season), seems to still have his shooting touch.
While he may not be physically able to punish the rim as he used to, he can still shoot. With either hand. At the same time. And then walk off the court like a boss.
Take a closer look below:
