#TBT Penny Hardaway: Lil Penny Commercial

For this edition of Throwback Thursday, we take a look at one of Nike’s most original and creative marketing campaign featuring Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway.

Orlando remains Anfernee Hardaway's basketball home

Dr. James Andrews explains Penny Hardaway's injury
