Summary:
Famous for his role in Nike's television commercials, the pint-sized, hyperactive, rascally alter-ego of professional basketball star Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway unleashes his outrageous opinions on basketball, women, and himself. Welcome to my inside flap. You know, most inside flaps in books try to sum up what the book's all about, and they usually have plenty of fancy terms like, "magically woven," or "packed with laughs," or "a triumph of the human spirit." And, of course, all of this is just a thinly veiled attempt to get you, the book browser, to buy the book. But not on my inside flap, no sir; I've got too many stories to tell, and I can't waste any space. So, with that in mind, here's a caption for the photograph of me on pages 58-59. I really enjoy a nice traditional Japanese steam bath. And so do my two lovely companions, Timori (left) and Masako. They're both flight attendants for a Japanese airline. And before you get any ideas, we're just friends. You know Tyra's the only one for me.
