Allan Houston says he believed in his heart that his career wasn't over when he retired two years ago because of knee problems.
Now he says his heart and body are on the same page and the former New York Knicks captain is ready for a comeback.
"I'm going to give it a shot," said Houston, whose foundation on Sunday will sponsor a Father Knows Best Retreat, a faith-based event in Harlem designed to strengthen father-son and mentor-mentee relationships. "I'm working out every day. I just have to figure out where it's going to be. In my heart I always felt it wasn't over. As I started working out, I felt my body was catching up with my heart."
Houston said playing for the Knicks isn't out of the question and that two teams have contacted him. The 6-6 guard said that while several teams, including Cleveland, Chicago, Detroit and Miami are going to be good, going to a good team doesn't guarantee a title. [READ]
i can tell you tho, pro athlete or not, your body at 30+ is much different than your body at 25 and under.
taking 2 years off probably made him feel great, but his body won't adjust very well getting back into the abuse. i think a lot of these older guys are getting fooled by the rest they've given their bodies. (Pippen, Houston, Reggie, Oakley, etc)
