Penny Hardaway Shoes: It has been confirmed that the former third round overall pick in the 1993 NBA draft and Nike are cooking something for sneaker heads as the Penny 6 is hopefully on its way out on the market. During an interview with Penny Hardaway in Complex, the former Orlando Magic point guard reveals his still great relationship with the shoe brand Nike. “I have a great relationship. We’re still doing contracts and we’re working on the Air Penny 6. I’m in a great place, man. Being retired and having not played the game in five or six years and still have shoes coming out in my likeness is a true blessing.”
The Orlando Magic are one of the youngest franchises in the NBA, which is a little hard to believe. They’ve made the NBA Finals twice, and featured some of the best and most iconic players of the past three decades: Shaquille O’Neal, Penny Hardaway, Grant Hill, Tracy McGrady, and Dwight Howard. And yet, the team is only coming up on its 25th anniversary next season. With that in mind, the Magic have unveiled a new logo to commemorate a quarter century of basketball. “This new look provides us an opportunity to reflect on where we’ve been and look forward to where we are headed,” team CEO Alex Martins said in a press release. “Our silver season logo signifies the history we are creating each day—every game, every play, every moment really is history in the making.”
