The Return of Lil’ Penny!

August 10, 2007


I’m praying for it, and I know you are too.  Back in the days when Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway was dominating the league with the Orlando Magic, alongside Shaq Diesel, Penny came out with a series of commercials featuring a “mini-me” named Lil’ Penny.  At the time, these commercials were hilarious!  They were the first good NBA player commercials in my books.  And this brings us to today.  Most of us have forgotten about Penny, due to him suffering from injuries over the years.  But this could be the comeback of the century!  Penny signed with the Miami Heat today.  Okay, it won’t be anywhere near the comeback of the century, but Penny could provide a decent scorer off the bench.  I’d take him over Antoine Walker any day.  Penny signing with the Heat seems appropriate with all the oldies rumoured to make a comeback (ie:  Allan Houston and Reggie Miller).  I put him in the same category seeing as how he’s barely played in the past couple years.  But I feel Penny still has something to prove.  I think he still has some game left, and could show it if given the opportunity.  I hope the Heat give him some minutes and by mid-season we will be seeing more Lil’ Penny!

    I agree that the Little Penny commercials were awesome. I believe it was Chris Rock as Little Penny.

    Penny, sadly, is horribly washed up and probably not worth even veteran minimum. But this just shows you how over-expanded the league is and how thin the talent pool has become.

    I feel the Heat see is as a gamble. Like they’re putting the vet minimum on red…or black. You never know if he starts hitting all his shots, then he becomes a steal for the vet min.

    …And how did I forget to mention Shaq and Penny being reunited in Florida! Incredible!

  4. shaq and penny may be reunited but without joe wolf and john koncak they aren’t getting anywhere near their 61 wins like they did in ’95-96. plus olajuwon put them all to shame anyway. that was the most fun i’ve ever had watching a big man dominate…
