Penny Hardaway NBA Career

Penny Hardaway is considered one of the biggest what-ifs in the NBA. He was an extremely talented player whose career was marred by injuries.

After being picked up by the Orlando Magic in 1993, he became an All-Star in just his second season in the NBA. Along with Shaquille O'Neal, he took the team to their first-ever NBA Finals.

Hardaway was proving to be one of the best guards in the league when he suffered a knee injury in the 1997-98 season. He tried to get back to his best in the following seasons, but once again, his left knee problems restricted him to just four games in the 2000-01 season.

When he returned, he was clearly past his best and wasn't even half the player he was during his initial Magic days. He retired in 2007, but returned for one last stint with the Heat and to team up once more with Shaq. But they waived him within a few months, bringing the curtains on a promising but ultimately disheartening career.
