Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway MAG
There is a man, a magician,
who plays in the NBA.
And every day Penny does pray
that he will play in the finals one day.
He made it to the finals in 1995
only to face Houston and take a nasty dive.
But now there are no excuses or any of that jive
so the Orlando Magic guarantee they'll survive.
And now that Shaq's gone with all his $doe,
that leaves good old Penny to run the show.
To show all the people, either fan or foe
that Mr. Hardaway is ready to go
to a place where an Orlando lover has never been,
on that wonderful cloud after a championship win.
This man plays with the greatest of ease,
when he drives to the hoop you can feel a breeze.
And at times he gets weak so you think you can seize
so he takes a step back and starts knockin down 3's.
On his elbow he wears a band
which is on the same arm as his shooting hand,
and in this hand he places the ball
and dribbles right past the small and tall.
He goes right by them as smooth as can be
with so much grace and creativity.
Even though Penny is very tall
he is extremely generous with the ball.
He almost averages a triple-double per game.
If he keeps this up, he'll be in the Hall of Fame.
And with this fame he has many fans
many more than the average man
would have at his highest peak,
on Monday, Tuesday, or any day of the week.
