NBA News Update: Penny Hardaway Wants to Return to Miami Heat – As if the buzz about LeBron James would be the last controversy in NBA news but this is even more controversial and well unexpected. Former NBA star, Penny Hardaway expressed his desire to comeback to the NBA and join Miami Heat. Hardaway, 38 years old expressed his intention during an interview with Bottom Line Sports.

“I’m healthy and I’m really ready to play,” Penny Hardaway said. “It’s not maximum minutes. I’m mentally ready to handle that type of a role.”

Penny Hardaway had been retired since the Miami Heat released him in December 2007. He was such a strong star and had been one of the star players until his star quality subsided and the Heat needed to release him. To make the long story short his career did not end very well.

“’I didn’t get a chance to finish my career the way I wanted,” says Hardaway when asked for the reason why he want to return to the NBA. Perhaps the strengthening Miami Heat line-up prompted the former star to think that it is this opportunity which could make his career end rightfully. Hardaway for all we know wants to be remembered as one of the great basketball players as well.

“Mentally I was retired and physically I was retired. I was playing recreational ball,” Hardaway said. “But when the decision happened with Chris Bosh and LeBron, I felt like I could really be good in that system.”

Hardaway already contacted Miami Heat President Pat Riley about his desire to return to the Miami Heat and add some spice to the team. However, Riley had not yet issue any response and is yet to contact Hardaway.

So what do you think? Should Penny Hardaway be allowed to play once again and would he be a liability or an asset to the Miami Heat?
