Like Hardaway, Sampson had a good 3 to 4 year stretch at the beginning of his NBA career where he was an all-star, sensational and something of a novelty. Moreover, while there have always been big points who could score and pass and do it fancy, from Oscar Robertson to Magic Johnson, there haven't been many 7'4" guys with guard skills. Sampson was a more unique talent, a funner player to watch in my opinion, and easily a better player than Penny.
Those voting for Penny I believer is their favorite player, or one of their favorites.
