An emotional Penny Hardaway went on the offensive this week, railing against several local media outlets he perceives as “haters.”

During a radio appearance Thursday on The Voice of MSCS' “TaylorMade Sports,” the seven-year Memphis basketball coach and four-time NBA All-Star called himself an “easy target” for criticism, especially after the Tigers missed the NCAA Tournament following a 15-2 start to the 2023-24 season. But Hardaway said some of what has been written in recent months has gone too far.

“It's not even about reporting on what we do and how we do it. It's more personal,” he said. “I can read through it. I see everything. I keep all the receipts. I just laugh because every single thing, even the smallest thing, has been reported on or an article written about this year. And this year there have been a lot more negative and personal things about me than in all the years, because for me it's been a no-brainer.”
