Miami Could Get a Penny Back?

If Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway has his way Mike Miller won’t be the only member of the 2010 – 2011 Miami Heat with ties to the City of Memphis. The NBA veteran Hardaway and University of Memphis legend himself told sports radio show “The Bottom Line Sports Show” that he will attempt to make a comeback at the age of 39 to join Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Co. on the Miami Heat.

Hardaway stated “Mentally I was retired and physically I was retired. I was playing recreational ball, but when the decision happened with Chris Bosh and LeBron, I felt like I could really be good in that system.” (Click Link For Audio) – Penny Hardaway Speaks at the 29:45 Minute Mark

Hardaway has not played in the league since November 2007, but still thinks he can make a difference to the All-Star lineup who are already apart of the Heat. This won’t be the 1st time we have seen NBA Veterans line up to be apart of a team being constructed to make a huge run towards the Championship. In the summer of 2003 future NBA Hall of Famers Gary Payton and Karl Malone joined the Lakers roster which already included Kobe Bryant and Shaq. That season did not end with a Championship, as they lost to the Detroit Pistons in 5 games. Hopefully things work out better for Miami. We will see in the upcoming weeks who will fill the remaining roster spots for the Heat and if Penny Hardaway’s name will be included on that list.
