"They brought him off the injured list, and he was pretty much doing the same thing he was doing on the injured list, which is nothing." - Chris Jefferies about Rick Brunson. Team mates, but not friends.

Penney has played in the NBA before, but it was a long time ago now. Between 2003 and 2005, he spent time with the Timberwolves, Heat and Clippers, compiling 29 minutes of court time. Since then, the New Zealand international spent a couple of seasons in the upper echelons of the European game, before returning home (kind of) in 2007 to play for the New Zealand Breakers (who, despite the name and the location, play in the Australian league). Penney has absolutely destroyed the NBL since he went there, leading the league in scoring for the last two seasons, and averaging 23.2 points and 5.2 rebounds last season. He came back to America at the tail end of the season to join the D-League's Sioux Falls Skyforce, where he scored 22.7 more points per game, before averaging a further 24.7ppg for New Zealand in this summer's world championships. Penney was always good at Wisconsin, but now he's even better, a terrific jumpshooter with enough size and speed, who's also dragged his defense up to acceptable levels. He may not have been in the NBA for a while, but that doesn't mean he couldn't have been.

The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
