Assistant coach / player development - yes ... head coach : wait & see

Perhaps one of the most electrifying & iconic NBA players of all time in his early years -- who would have ever thought that his career would be cut short with injuries and he would wind up coaching?

Wishing Coach Hardaway lots of success - mesmerizing play in the 90's, hopeful he can have that impact from a coaching perspective.

He can be Head Coach only if Little Penny is an assistant coach :D

Teaming up with the Magic would be nice.

A bit premature. Penny will eventually be a great NBA head coach, but he still hasn't been seasoned enough as a head coach after starting at a middle school in Memphis, then a high school in Memphis, and now the University of Memphis. So far, his teams at the University of Memphis have underwhelmed and not lived up to expectations - it's not clear to me if that's on him or on the collection of players he has assembled.

I'm assuming that he doesn't get hired for a superteam
