Anfernee Deon "Penny" Hardaway (born July 18, 1971) is an American retired professional basketballplayer who played in the National Basketball Association (NBA). An exceptionally tall point guard, Hardaway was often compared to Magic Johnson. An all-star in his first few seasons, Hardaway was most productive in his years with the Orlando Magic, and his early years with the Phoenix Suns. Injuries began to plague him, however, and diminished his effectiveness. He played for the New York Knicks from 2004 to 2006, and last for the Miami Heat, which released him on December 12, 2007.
For Nickelodeon, he guest starred as a Figure It Out panelist.
