ANFERNEE DEON "PENNY" HARDAWAY (born July 18, 1971) is an American retired professional basketball player who played in the National Basketball
Basketball
Association (NBA), specializing as an unconventionally tall point guard . Hardaway's most productive years came in his days as a member of the Orlando Magic as well as the early portion of his stint with the Phoenix Suns .

Hardaway was an All-NBA player early in his career, but was plagued by constant injuries which gradually reduced his effectiveness. He played for the New York Knicks from 2004 to 2006 and last played for the Miami Heat , who released him on December 12, 2007

Nba Draft
The NBA
NBA
DRAFT is an annual event dating back to 1947 in which the thirty teams from the National Basketball Association (NBA) can draft players who are eligible and wish to join the league. These are typically college basketball players, but international players are also eligible to be drafted. College players who have finished their four-year college eligibility are automatically eligible for selection, while the underclassmen have to declare their eligibility and give up their remaining college eligibility. International players who are at least 23 years old are automatically eligible for selection, while the players younger than 22 have to declare their eligibility. Players who are not automatically eligible but have declared their eligibility are often called "early-entrants" or "early-entry candidates". The draft usually takes place at the end of June, during the NBA
NBA
offseason. Since 1989, the draft has consisted of two rounds; this is much shorter than the entry drafts of the other major professional sports leagues in the United States and Canada , all of which run at least seven rounds. Sixty players are selected in each draft. No player may sign with the NBA

until he has been eligible for at least one draft

Shooting Guard
The SHOOTING GUARD (SG), also known as the TWO or OFF GUARD, is one of the five positions in a regulation basketball game. A shooting guard's main objective is to score points for his team. Some teams ask their shooting guards to bring up the ball as well; these players are known colloquially as combo guards . Kobe Bryant , for example, as a shooting guard was as good a playmaker as he was a scorer; other examples of combo guards are Dwyane Wade , Allen Iverson , James Harden , Jamal Crawford , Randy Foye and Jason Terry . A player who can switch between playing shooting guard and small forward is known as a swingman . Notable swing men (also known as wing players) include Jimmy Butler , Tracy McGrady , Vince Carter , Joe Johnson , Andre Iguodala , Andrew Wiggins , Evan Turner

Point Guard
The POINT GUARD (PG), also called the ONE or POINT, is one of the five positions in a regulation basketball game. A point guard has perhaps the most specialized role of any position. Point guards are expected to run the team's offense by controlling the ball and making sure that it gets to the right players at the right time. Above all, the point guard must totally understand and accept their coach's game plan; in this way, the position can be compared to a quarterback in American football or a playmaker in association football (soccer). While the guard must understand and accept the coach's gameplan, he must also be able to adapt to what the defense is allowing, and he also must control the pace of the game. A point guard, like other player positions in basketball, specializes in certain skills. A point guard's primary job is to facilitate scoring opportunities for his/her team, or sometimes for themselves. Lee Rose has described a point guard as a coach on the floor, who can handle and distribute the ball to teammates. This involves setting up plays on the court, getting the ball to the teammate in the best position to score, and controlling the tempo of the game. A point guard should know when and how to instigate a fast break and when and how to initiate the more deliberate sets. Point guards are expected to be vocal floor leaders

1993–94 Nba Season
A SEASON is a division of the year marked by changes in weather , ecology , and amount of daylight . Seasons result from Earth\'s orbit around the Sun
Sun
and Earth
Earth
's axial tilt relative to the ecliptic plane. In temperate and polar regions, the seasons are marked by changes in the intensity of sunlight that reaches the Earth's surface, variations of which may cause animals to undergo hibernation or to migrate, and plants to be dormant. Red and green trees in autumn (fall) During May, June, and July, the Northern Hemisphere is exposed to more direct sunlight because the hemisphere faces the Sun. The same is true of the Southern Hemisphere in November, December, and January. It is Earth's axial tilt that causes the Sun
Sun
to be higher in the sky during the summer months , which increases the solar flux . However, due to seasonal lag , June, July, and August are the warmest months in the Northern Hemisphere while December, January, and February are the warmest months in the Southern Hemisphere. In temperate and subpolar regions, four calendar -based seasons are generally recognized: _spring _, _summer _, _autumn _ or _fall_, and _winter _. Ecologists often use a six-season model for temperate climate regions: _prevernal_, _vernal_, _estival_, _serotinal_, _autumnal_, and _hibernal_
