Last night, I ran a story with a quote ostensibly from Penny Hardaway about Kawhi Leonard, but that has been proved to be incorrect. Here’s the audio to what Penny actually said:
Superstar? I’m not going to discount, neither. I love Kawhi. What I’m trying to say, superstar — You know what, I could give Kawhi superstar because he’s just not a guy who likes commercials. He’s not a guy who wants to be the face of the league. He just wants to get his work done.
So, instead of just updating the original story, I wanted to come clean, apologize to Hardaway, and set the record straight.
Sorry, Penny, PtR will no longer run with quotes of audio we have not heard ourselves. I regret adding to the misinformation on this topic and will do all I can to ensure we never do so again.
