Penny Hardaway is beginning his first year as coach of the Memphis Tigers — doesn’t that still seem surreal, reading it? — and Geoff Calkins of The Daily Memphian is going to write the book.

That’s right, a book. Written in chapters, as a serial, with a new chapter arriving every Monday. It’ll capture all the anticipation, the excitement and the challenges of the season. It’ll explore what Hardaway and Memphis basketball mean to the city and the people who call it home.

It’ll be the definitive chronicle of the return of an NBA icon, as he tries to restore the basketball program he loves.

Join Calkins for the grand adventure, beginning this week with Chapter One.
