It's NBA All-Star Weekend, which means everyone ever associated with the Association is flocking to New Orleans. Not least among them (except maybe in size) is legendary No. 1/2, Li'l Penny, who made quite the name for himself back in the '90s alongside his Orlando Magic sidekick. (Let's be real—Li'l Penny ran the show.) We got a chance to sit down with LP in the Crescent City to hear about his current wherabouts, what he thinks about the NBA, and why we don't get invited to his Super Bowl parties. Check it out.
So where have you been the past couple years? We don't see you anymore.
Well first, let me re-introduce myself. I’m Li’l Penny. LP for short. I’m the greatest of the great. I live larger than large. Back before you were born, me and my man Penny Hardaway were the hottest thing going. He handled business on the court and I was the brains of the operation.
What have I been doing with myself since then? What does someone like me do? That’s easy. There’s no one else like me. I’ve been taking some time for me, myself and me. I’ve got a condo on an aircraft carrier and some prime real estate in the South of France.
I’ve also got projects. I’ve made some plans. But I’ve got the hunger for basketball like a vampire needs blood. And I know it feels the same way about me!
