Born:     July 18, 1971
Birthplace:    Memphis, TN
Zodiac Sign:  Cancer

Anfernee Deon "Penny" Hardaway is an American college basketball coach and a former professional basketball player who played in the National Basketball Association (NBA). He currently is the head coach of the Memphis Tigers. An exceptionally tall point guard, he was an all-star in his first few seasons. Hardaway was most productive in his years with the Orlando Magic, and his early years with the Phoenix Suns. Injuries began to plague him, like other players such as Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming, and diminished his effectiveness. He played for the New York Knicks from 2004 to 2006, and finished his career in 2007 with the Miami Heat, which reunited him with former Magic teammate Shaquille O’Neal.

Hardaway has a son Jayden, an aspiring basketball player, who like his father, plays guard. Anfernee also has two daughters: LaTanfernee (born 1992) and Laila Hardaway (born 2005) both with his former girlfriend from high school, Latarsha.

Hardaway is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. Source.
