Penny Hardaway’s time at University of Memphis (or Memphis State as it was known back then) was a prelude to NBA greatness. He put up averages of 20, 7.7 and 5.9 in his two brief seasons there and at 6-foot-7 had people convinced the next Magic Johnson had arrived. Penny showed us a glimpse of what he could be before injury came to collect. We all know Penny’s Nike line well as it’s been elevated to legend status in sneaker circles. Nike caps on that adoration with the Nike Zoom Rookie, a compilation of those famous Penny line aesthetics. Here’s a few shots of the “Memphis Blue” colorway. Official release info TBA.
