Allan Houston is still shooting the lights out at the age of 50

The following article first appeared on BasketballNetwork.net:

Allan Houston is back in the gym and shooting the lights out, showing he still has the soft shooting touch at the age of 50.

If you were a New York Knicks fan in the late '90s and early 2000s, Allan Houston was perhaps your favorite player on the squad. At the time, Patrick Ewing was still the face of the franchise despite being past his prime, but Houston was the best scorer on that team. He was also seen as the next franchise player for the Knicks after Ewing retired, and rightfully so.

Houston was incredibly skilled and an all-around player that was able to drop 20-to-25 points against any defense in the NBA at the time. Despite having an incredible repertoire of moves, Houston was mostly known as a great shooter that could light it up from pretty much any position on the floor.

He was recently seen in a video with skills coach Chris Matthews (@LethalShooter), draining one three-pointer after the other. Matthews said he literally missed only five shots in 30 minutes, which is pretty remarkable when you take into account Houston has been retired for over 15 years.

When it comes to All-Star players and shooters like Houston, it always seems they would always be able to still lace them up and give at least 5-to-10 good minutes on the floor — no matter what their age is.
