Penny Hardaway Back to Miami Heat—to Play with LeBron? Hell Yea! He Tells Us: ‘I’m still damn good at what I do’

Penny Hardaway wants to make one thing perfectly clear: He’s ready, willing and able to return to the NBA—and is jonesing to play side-by-side with LeBron James.

During his monthly “Penny for Your Thoughts” segment on The Bottom Line Sports Show, the all-star BlogTalkRadio contributor announced he’s throwing his hat in the ring for a place on the Miami Heat, where, in 2007, he played his final NBA season before retiring with knee injuries.

“Mentally I was retired and physically I was retired. I was playing recreational ball,” the shooting and point guard—who began his career with the Orlando Magic, before joining the Phoenix Suns and New York Kicks—told host Gerald Brown.

Rapper Fat Joe: LeBron James Not Comin’ to the Big Apple

Much as it pains him, Fat Joe says New Yorkers won’t be getting NBA superstar LeBron James any time soon.

Interviewed on H2GRadio, the rap star—who owns a street basketball team called the Terror Squad that plays in Harlem—weighs in on the chances of the New York Knicks snagging the Cleveland Cavaliers forward when his $60 million contract expires at the end the current NBA season, making him a free agent.
