Literally everyone you think had “it” would say he had it too.

Have to mention Lebrons smooth spin move (which i think may even be the best spin move in history), many can do it but not at 6'9-260 after running a 100 mph fastbreak, its smooth, quick, explosive & he covers SOOO much ground with it.

That very first Penny gif delivers in spades. Penny wasn't the smoothest player aesthetically, especially his shooting form, but his footwork a lot of times could easily negate that clunkiness to his shot. He was a cerebral guy and probably too much of a perfectionist to unleash himself on the regular, but when it came out for a few minutes or a quarter at a time it was beautiful.

The 1st play by Penny. Never ever seen a play like that before. And I see why. He travelled.

You've never seen James Harden?

Everyone in the NBA has been traveling for decades, wtf.

It's worse than ever right now but I'm just talking about that play. In real time, it looks legit. But if you slow it down, you see he spins, moves both feet, and pivots again. TRAVEL.

Nah it looks like a pretty blatant travel in full speed, lol.

The lack of Wade mentions is absolutely disgusting.

Mark Price had some really underrated moments - you'd get the feeling he was some Pistol Pete clone/Jason Williams mentor during these. I remember a play against the Bulls, maybe in the early/mid-90's (before '95) in which he combined some crazy dribbles and a crazy pass to an open long range shot, but I haven't found that play for quite some time - would be fine to make a gif out of this. A pretty "wtf" play that you wouldn't expect from your typical white guard back then.
