Penny Hardaway Returns to Orlando for Magic ‘Legends Night’
Anfernee ‘Penny’ Hardaway represents more to the history of the Orlando Magic than he’ll ever be thanked for. Friday evening the franchise that Penny was famous for brought him back in honor of ‘Legends Night’. Hardaway talked about the heartbreak of ’95, re-establishing a relationship with the Magic organization, his influence on players and basketball culture, and much more. Penny seems motivated to move up the coaching ranks from the Middle School team he coaches in Memphis. Penny was always known for his basketball mind, and I’m sure there would be teams on any level – high school, college, NBA – that would be chomping at the bit to have Hardaway on their payroll. Welcome back, Penny. Hopefully the Orlando community will re-embrace you and have you visiting the city more often.
