Memphis Man Shot After Arguing: “Is Penny Hardaway a Good Basketball Coach?”

A basketball argument got way out of hand in Memphis, sending one man to the hospital.

Memphis first responders well called to the scene July 3 after a man was shot in the chest. According to WREG, the man was shot by his cousin after the two intensely argued if Memphis Tigers head basketball coach Penny Hardaway was in fact a good coach.

The victim told police that he was inside the home when he got into a fight with his cousin over whether or not Hardaway was a good coach. The verbal altercation escalated and that’s when Tyrone Taylor allegedly punched the man in the face before pulling out a gun and firing.

Taylor has seen been taken into custody and charged with multiple crimes, including second-degree murder.

Is Penny Hardaway in fact a good basketball coach? That’s up for debate, just do it at your own risk.

    The victim was obviously arguing against Penny being a good coach. Rational people don’t shoot others over such an argument or actually think Penny could ever coach anything more organized than AAU run-and-gun “basketball.”

      And “second degree murder?” Did the victim die or does TN just have some REALLY f’ed up laws?

      That should read ATTEMPTED second degree murder.

      I wondered if it should have been “attempted” or “second degree assault.”

    I was wondering how he gave an account of events to police if he had been murdered. Guess he could have, much like Penny will be soon, on his way out.

      And mashbum is trying to find a way to make Cal look worse than Penny.

    There is more than enough justifiable blame with him already, and it’s not laughable.

    Police say they arrived just in time as the assailant had fired up his bbq pit and was lathering the victim in sauce.
