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.
Between 1995 and 1998, Penny Hardaway was widely considered the second best guard in the NBA behind Michael Jordan. Penny was a four time All-Star, and alongside Shaquille O’Neal, led the Orlando Magic to the 1995 NBA Finals...
Anfernee Hardaway has not been seen around Orlando very often since he left the Magic in a trade before the 1999-2000 season. He returned for the All-Star Game a few years ago, but we rarely see one of the Magic's four greatest players around much.
Tonight against the Knicks, Hardaway will be honored as part of the team's 25th Anniversary season. He has had a long, winding...

- Anfernee Hardaway was a truly incredible offensive player in his prime and 6 of his 7 best seasons statistically, were with Orlando. However, other than his...
Anfernee Hardaway crashed the NBA party in the mid-1990s and was going to be part of the literal changing of the guard in the NBA. In Hardaway there was a point guard with size (6-foot-7), speed and athleticism but also the control to run the point. He was not quite Magic Johnson as a point guard, but he was unquestionably one of the best players in the NBA for a solid four or five...
With the Eastern Conference Semifinals shifting to Chicago for the next two games, the attention has turned toward Derrick Rose once again. Anticipation has been that if Rose were to make a return to the court this season, it would have to be at home for maximum momentum and comfort.
Since Derrick Rose will not slam the door on his return by saying he is coming back one way or...
For those wondering where Anfernee Hardaway has been since retiring from the NBA, he has been back in his hometown of Memphis. Aside from the stray local commercial (he owns a franchise in a local pizza restaurant, I believe) and the stray TNT appearance alongside former teammates Dennis Scott and Shaquille O'Neal, we do not see much of Penny Hardaway.
He has been quite active...
19 miles in 59 minutes. Getting in shape!
Anfernee Hardaway seemed to come and go in a flash.
He burst onto the team and helped push the Magic to greatness the moment he stepped in. His rookie year was the first Playoff trip for the Magic. His second season, Hardaway and Shaquille O'Neal led the Magic to the NBA Finals. He was an All-Star starter within two years and an All-NBA First Team player just as fast.
I took to Twitter the other night after screening The Other Dream Team and wanted to know what you, the readers/listeners readers regarded as the best starting five players, in your opinion and likes. Granted, my favorite five of all time is a bit weird. My starting five would look like this:
PG: Anfernee Hardaway
SG: Kerry Kittles
SF: Paul Pierce
PF: Tim Duncan
