This is what i really admirable about Rip.
A few things I've learned about RIP over the years that contribute to this:
he has a whole bunch of dogs that he runs with every morning...he tries to outlast his dogs when it comes to running.
He has never drank alcohol or smoked anything in his life.
He (like alot of pro athletes) has a personal chef.
He is not married and has no kids (I think)...and isn't known for partying..therefore he has more time than many to take care of his body.
By the way, at UConn he was not a good defender...He became a good defender after a few years in the NBA.
