The miniature, trash-talking version of former Magic guard Penny Hardaway hopes to bring luck to Orlando.

Orlando Magic officials have brought all sorts of good luck charms with them to the NBA Draft Lottery the last five years. […]
This year, the Magic will rely on a decades-old, talking Lil’ Penny doll.
Pat Williams, a co-founder of the Magic, intends to carry the toy into Chicago’s Palmer House Hilton for Tuesday night’s 2018 NBA Draft Lottery.
Williams will sit in the room where four pingpong balls will be drawn from a lottery machine and hope the Magic win the top overall pick. The doll will sit close by.
