Penny Hardaway needs to stop playing, literally and figuratively. Apparently he’s proposed the idea of joining the Heat in an attempt to close out his career the right way and win a championship with this team destined to go 82-0.
I don’t know why it’s so hard for athletes to hang it up. He’s had a great career, is one of the most memorable athletes of the 90s and should be a millionaire. Unfortunately injuries derailed his career. There’s no shame in that.
Then again, the Heat have signed Juwan Howard and Big Z. Why not sign Penny as your 3rd point guard behind me and Mario Chalmers? Maybe he can bring lil Penny back too and they can fill out the rest of the roster.
