We Reminisce: Glen Rice Drops 56 On Shaq & Penny

After reminiscing on Latrell Sprewell in the late ’90s, we figured we’d take it back again. Some of the young cats out there might know Glen Rice just as that dude who got with Sarah Palin, but back in the day he gave nearly everyone the biz. Besides MJ (who wasn’t a fan of him growing up?), Rice was my favorite player and Charlotte my favorite team. Even though this game comes from the year before he ended up in the Beehive, respect is due. Rice dropped 56 (on 20-27 from the field) on Penny & Shaq‘s domes, and did it all while leading a pedestrian Heat team to a 123-117 win. If you must know, O’Neal had 38 & 16 and Penny gave Miami 28 & 18 in this one as well.

Is Glen Rice one of the top 10 shooters of all-time?
