Collin Sexton once told Penny Hardaway his son was trash to his face
Sexton has developed a strong reputation for his competitive drive on the court that has become a huge part of his game. There has now been a video that has emerged of him trash talking former Orlando Magic great Penny Hardaway as he coached against him in a high school game telling him that his son was a “trash” player.

This is a clear example of the competitive approach that Sexton has taken that has helped him become the player he has developed to this point of his basketball career. The 19-year-old may be a huge trash talker, but his game has backed that up with his stellar play in his lone year at the collegiate level averaging a team-best 19.2 points along with 3.6 assists and 3.8 rebounds per contest that helped him earn SEC Freshman of the Year, a Second-Team All-SEC nod, and an SEC All-Freshman Team selection.
Sexton will have an opportunity to make an immediate impact from the get-go with the Cavaliers that could see him take on a significant role. Regardless of what LeBron James decides to do this summer, the Alabama product will be a huge piece to team’s long-term future. If anything, this video should give the Cavaliers and their fan base a glimpse into the type of competitive player that Sexton is on the court.
