Penny Hardaway has plenty of nice things to say about Skal

The Summer AAU circuit has a way of surprising you.  Today’s surprise: Penny Hardaway coached future-Cat Skal Labissiere.

The former Memphis Tiger and Orlando Magic superstar coached the fellow Memphisite (or is it Memphesian?) a couple summers back on the Nike circuit with Team Penny.  Ben Roberts of the Herald-Leader caught up with Hardaway, who praised Skal’s work ethic above all else.

“He’s a great teammate,” Hardaway told the Herald-Leader. “You want good kids. You don’t want kids who will be on the bench bickering. Whatever Cal says, he’s going to do. And he’s going to do it with a smile on his face. And he’s going to work harder than anybody there.”

Penny works well with Big Men.  Just look at the beauty from early in his career with Shaq.  Dropping 38 on the ’96 Bulls is no small feat
