The retired baller and local community philanthropist could be doing a million other things in the post-playing career phase of his life, but he spends his time coaching the East High Mustangs in his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. Hardaway’s journey began with a promise he made to longtime friend Desmond Merriweather, known to many as “Dez.” Merriweather was a highly successful coach at Lester Middle School in Memphis when he reached out to Hardaway to help coach the team. The two led the Lester basketball program to three state championships.
Grant was on the B.S. Report with Bill Simmons earlier this week and spoke about his glory days with the Bulls and those Magic teams. While there was an ego struggle between O’Neal and Anfernee Hardaway simmering, Grant said he believed O’Neal was ultimately going to stay in Orlando. Then he missed a phone call. He called me, and I didn’t return his call, before he signed with the Lakers. And to this day, I wish I had just answered that call, and maybe he still would have been in Orlando. I heard about it and saw it on the news, and it was like Mike Tyson hit me. You cannot recover from a guy that size, in his prime, that dominant to think you are going to win a championship. Absolutely not.
