Penny Hardaway was selected by the Golden State Warriors in the first round of the 1993 NBA Draft (third pick overall), but was traded along with three future first-round picks to the Orlando Magic for the rights to first overall pick Chris Webber. Plagued by knee injuries, Penny was heralded as a mix between MJ and Magic. At 6"8 he was an excellent passer, scorer, defender and rebounder that helped the Magic with Shaq reach the finals in '95.
