It seems like Joe Johnson is not just ready on give up on a possible return to the NBA , he teld TMZ Sports he’s still training his ass off in case he gets that call.

The 38-year-old stud had a stint with the Pistons earlier this year after BALLING OUT in Ice Cube’s BIG3 league, but he got waived by Detroit back in October.

However, is there a possibility that Johnson will get another shot in the NBA, go back to the BIG3, or just hang ’em up for good?

Right now, Johnson says he’s not rushing to make any decisions — but he’s doing his best in making sure that his body remains ready in case he gets another opportunity with an NBA team.

In the meantime, Johnson says his focus is on enjoying life and living in the moment — not worrying about his career.

It’s easy for Joe to be so carefree about everything considering he’s made more than $215 MILLION during his NBA career!!!

As for the BIG3, the league kicks off again in June so the reigning MVP has some time to make up his mind.
