I like that comparison. Makes sense. Palmer has been healthy enough to not be on a Grant Hill / Derrick Rose plateau, and like you said, more like a Chris Webber bucket. I would say Tracy McGrady is an even closer comparison. I'd say CP is somewhere in between Webber and McGrady. Throughout his career, slightly less healthy than Webber and a bit more healthy than McGrady.
... and PT you're absolutely right ... the timing of that contract couldn't be any better for Palmer and by default as equally unfortunate for the Cardinals franchise.
