Former NBA All-Star Joe Johnson has not appeared in an NBA game since the 2017-18 season, but that hasn’t stopped him from staying NBA ready.

A recent photo of the 39-year-old Johnson showed him in incredible shape.

A seven-time All-Star, Johnson last played for the Houston Rockets during the 2017-18 season.

He spent some time playing in Ice Cube’s Big 3 league, but it is possible he could be eyeing an NBA comeback.

Johnson was a lethal scorer during his prime, as he averaged 25.0 points per game while playing with the Atlanta Hawks during the 2006-07 season.

In his career, Johnson has had five seasons in which he averaged over 20.0 points per game and seven where he averaged over 18.0 points per game.

It will be interesting to see if a contender gives Johnson a shot to prove himself as a volume scorer off the bench next season.

He certainly seems to be in shape for it.

Should Johnson latch onto a team, it would be his 18th season in the NBA.
