   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 28

- Penny Hardaway

Hardaway last played in December 2007 with the Miami Heat. Finding anything that he's done since then has not been easy. His website is just a shade out of date, and if he has business interests then I don't know what they are.

   "That Guy We Drafted," 1993

- 3rd pick: Penny Hardaway (Orlando)

- Hardaway last played with the Heat in the early part of the 2007/08 season, back when Pat Riley thought it'd be a good idea to assemble a backcourt of him and Smush Parker. He spoke of attempting one more comeback up to and including last summer, but it never came to pass, and it's never now going to. Hardaway wasn't very good in his time with the Heat, due to the old age and all the injuries, and he wouldn't be any better now that he's 38.

In retirement, Hardaway has recently launched his own tournament, and he appears at a lot of Memphis Tiger games. He also turns up at a lot of charity events, as well as the opening of this golf course. No word on what he does for money these days, but given the amount he earned in his NBA career, there doesn't really need to be anything.
