Penny was the only real first option out of the three.

I'll say it again when comparing Hill and Penny strictly. Out of the two, what was Hill better at?

Shooter? Penny.
Post Player? Penny.
Playmaker? Penny.
Defender? Penny.
Drive Penetration? Penny.
Passer? Penny.
More efficient? Penny.

Hill has no case over Penny in their primes.
When you look above, the same thing applies for Penny vs Pippen outside of defense. Everything else Penny had him pinned too.
I don't think Penny was better at passing. Or even running an offense. He was a SG/SF playing PG just like the others.
