Juwan Howard teaches by example by staying in great shape

When Erik Spoelstra talked about how the Heat would prepare for the Sixers in the playoffs, he mentioned the importance of Juwan Howard.

Then there is Howard, the 6-9 45 year old former All-Star forward who retired from the NBA after the 2013 NBA Finals with the Heat.

“Juwan could still play,” Spoelstra said. “He could still play 8 to 10 minutes. I say that all the time. He and [assistant coach] Chris Quinn still take the body-fat test and they will take that to their grave I’m sure. They’re ready to roll.”

The Knicks are looking for a coach who can connect with the modern player. It always helps when you can still hang in practice.
