one of the best to ever play.....some are questionable. but yes in your random player list, penny ranked higher than most which is why he was a top 5 player from 95-97 (i know, short window).
oh btw, where's your b-roy debate vs penny? that's what started this thread in the first place
Already said I would take Penny over Roy but it's close. If you want to talk about which player I would rather have if they both were healthy then it would be Roy. He played injured his whole career and put up the same numbers as Penny. Roy was also the better clutch performer. Even on his dead legs he led a great playoff comeback against the Mavs last year. Damn looks like I'm convincing myself to take Roy over Penny. Penny's potential was just better though and Roy's potential was always limited due to his knees.
I'll keep the list short this time and will take those five guys over Penny in the 95-96 season.
Also like I said Penny regressed when Shaq left. Went from 21/4/7 to 20/5/5.
