yeah nice interview, nothing i didnt know tho.

what do u all think of him, do you think he can/will make it to the NBA?.

He has an ex Aussie coach that coached the Sydney Kings in Brett Brown there at the Spurs, hes the 1 who got Shane Heal his 2nd stint in the NBA after he retired, he mite do the same 4 Penney.

I tried watching the Germany-New Zealand game today, I think he did pretty good, wasn't spectacular or anything and didn't take over the game.

I watched a many of a game Penny was in at UW.

He is a gunner and doesn't make bad discisions.
His issue is quickness in defense ,, but experience can help , and considering he has played 4 years out side of college ball means he is serious about making the NBA.

Surprised he never went to Euro - and made a killing in cash.
