With news that the second greatest Saturday morning TV show (Kelly Kapowski powers Saved By The Bell to #1) is coming back to TV after an 8 year hiatus, I quickly dug through a stack of VHS tapes to find my favorite recorded episodes of Inside Stuff. My all-time favorite episode came in 1993 when Ahmad interviewed Orlando Magic rookie Anfernee Hardaway about his “stupid nickname,” what separates him from Magic Johnson and the promising future for him and his teammate and Blue Chips co-star Shaquille O’Neal.
Check out Penny making a surprise appearance on Inside the NBA 20 years later to reunite with his former Magic teammates Shaq and 3D and an awesome video of the three reminiscing about Penny’s first couple years in the league.
