Pretty cool to see. Shaq talks about when he first saw Penny and wanted him on the Magic. Some good footage of the 90's Magic. Penny talks about being the last team to actually knock out Jordan's Bulls. And of course, it wouldn't be a Shaq video without hearing how the 90's Magic would dominate the DH12 Magic. "Who would guard Penny??". Not sure why three bald ass dudes are hanging out at a barbershop though.

Not sure why he thinks this is a relevant topic of discussion or who would actually argue with him here.  Maybe the '09 season if Nelson hadn't gotten hurt.

I think they were talking about their 95 finals team vs the 09 finals team, no?

Looking back, Penny was definitely one of the biggest "What If" players, always wonder how good he would've ranked all time amongst PGs had he stayed healthy. Got to agree with them too, that 2009 Magic Finals team ddoesn't even come close to what Shaq-Penny had. Interesting to see Shaq admit to being a ring chaser though, lol.

That 95 team was very good. Shaq posted the greatest (that I'm aware of) finals performance by a loser, and Penny's finals performance was also very good. I loved that Magic team as a kid.

Oh how I remember this team.

It's too bad I was living here during the the painful McGrady era.

It was amazing watching this Magic team though, If Shaq had stayed they would have won at least one.

Wade in 2011 might have topped it if not for his Game 6.

Maybe, that was a good one, but I'd take Shaq's.

Yeah, Shaq put up some monster numbers in that finals. I always wondered why people thought Hakeem dominated him. Hakeem did score about 4 points per game more, but it wasn't as lopsided as it's often made out to be. Shaq did outrebound and outblock Hakeem. I just did some quick research an got the numbers. Hakeem averaged 32.8 ppg, 11.5 boards, 5.5 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks while shooting 48.3% from the field. The numbers are really not far off at all between the two, and you could easily argue that Shaq put up better numbers than Hakeem.

Anybody knowing brian skinner should tell him he is a ***.  Tell brian skinner he needs to get a life, i tried using him on nba 2k9 but he is horrible he should just quit now and

Not that Shaq had a bad career after he left by any stretch of imagination, but man, the things he and Penny and D Scott could have accomplished had they stayed together in Orlando.  I remember back then, that Magic team was everybody's favourite team.  They were too young to have beaten Hakeem's Rockets that year, but as they got older they would have dominated the league.

Ah the days of old, they could have been so great had Penny been healthy and Shaq stayed in Orlando.  They were an up-and-coming young team when they were split up, I used to like watching the duo play together, and oh yeah D-Scott was lethal from 3-point land.  Saw this special over the All-Star weekend, but it's still great to see this, thanks for the video.
