NBA Star and Hydra-Guard Partner Paul Millsap has recently signed a one-year contract with the Brooklyn Nets.
The 15-year NBA veteran is easily recognized as one of NBA’s most prominent defensive players to ever play in the league since his NBA debut in 2006, when he was selected by the Utah Jazz in the second round of the 2006 NBA draft and was named to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team that season. Millsap now becomes the latest former All-Star to join the Nets over the past few seasons, joining Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden.
Paul has appeared in 1,052 career games (745 starts) across 15 NBA seasons with the Denver Nuggets (2017-21), Atlanta Hawks (2013-17) and Utah Jazz (2006-13), recording averages of 13.7 points on 49.0 percent shooting from the floor, 34.3 percent shooting from 3-point range and 73.6 percent shooting from the free-throw line, along with 7.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.0 blocks in 28.6 minutes per game. Most recently with the Nuggets during the 2020-21 season, Millsap appeared in 56 games (36 starts) and averaged 9.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 20.8 minutes per contest.
The 4x NBA All-Star has always made his nutrition and health a priority, which reflects his elite performance and extremely successful career in the NBA. Paul’s ability to maintain playing at the highest level has been nothing short of amazing. It's a professional career that every athlete strives for.
The key for longevity in any athlete’s career is to take care of their bodies first and that's something that Paul has obviously done very well. A rising natural beverage brand out of Louisiana called Hydra-Guard Sports Drink caught Paul’s attention in early 2019, when he officially partnered with them in efforts to bring the brands healthy benefits more readily available to more households across the country.
"Being a professional athlete naturally encourages me and my family to live a healthy lifestyle. Hydra-Guard Sports Drink raises the bar to unprecedented heights with its beverage innovation. It’s packed with electrolytes, and being an all natural sports drink with low sugars is a game changer, this product is changing the industry," says Paul.
