Penny Hardaway Wants the Media to Stop Asking Him “Stupid F****** Questions”

via Twitter

Banner week for the sports media in both Canada and the United States.

The other day, a guy up in Edmonton asked Leon Draisaitl why he was being “pissy,” and then Thursday night Penny Hardaway asked Memphis basketball media to stop asking him “stupid fucking questions” –

“Stop disrespecting me bro” could possibly be the new “don’t tase me bro.” 

I also appreciate Penny for saying “ya’ll write all these bullshit articles about me.” He actually does a good job at keeping his composure here, but if he was just slightly more off the rails this rant would have ended up in the pantheon of great coaching rants, like Mike Gundy screaming “I’M A MAN, I’M 40,” and Dan Hawkins telling ungrateful Colorado Buffaloes to “go play intramurals brotha.”

“It’s division 1 football! It’s the Big 12!”

For all of you young buckeroos out there, Penny Hardaway was an absolute stud in the mid-90s. He was on Sports Center every day, back when Sports Center was the best. Go look up Penny’s 1995-1996 season. He was first-team All NBA and carried the load while Shaq was injured, scoring more than 20 points a night. The only thing that kept Penny from winning a ring was running into Michael Jordan’s Bulls that year and Hakeem Olajuwon’s Rockets the year prior.
