NOW 38 years old, one former NBA All-Star has yet to officially retire.
Paul Millsap first entered the NBA all the way back in 2006 as a fresh faced 21-year-old.

Drafted 47th overall out of Louisiana Tech by the Utah Jazz, the forward quickly became a regular off of the bench.
Making 82 appearances in his three of his first four seasons, he transitioned into a full-time starter in 2010.
Fast forward to the 2013 season, following Millsap’s move to the Atlanta Hawks in free agency, he made his first of four consecutive All-Star appearances.
During this period he hit new career-highs in total rebounds (9.0), assists (3.7), and points per game (18.1).
After four years in Georgia, Millsap signed for the Denver Nuggets, where his first season was cut short by a wrist injury.
He wound up playing four years in Colorado before signing with the Brooklyn Nets in 2021.
However, Millsap’s stint with the Nets was short-lived, being traded in February 2022 to the Philadelphia 76ers alongside James Harden.
Unfortunately, Millsap made just nine appearances for Philly before hitting free agency, where he has remained since.
The sixteen year veteran has yet to suit up for another team since, but also has yet to officially retire.
Whether or not Millsap plans to return to the NBA remains unknown.
In the meantime, he is the founder of a training facility and academy called Core4 in Atlanta.
Millsap also regularly shares motivational messages on his Twitter page, most recently tweeting: “Can’t. Stop. Believing.”
