Perhaps this is a heartless poll, but let's be realistic about the viability of the newspaper industry right now -it stinks.
Sacbee lists 4 folks covering the Kings/NBA, 5 if you include Marty McNeal's occasional piece. That's probably too many by 2. Who can we most do without? Bottom 2 are out.
My username indicates my vote #1. Sadly, my other vote would be for McNeal. The guy put in his time on the beat, but he's not adding any value now.
I'm up for replacing howard-cooper and bringing back RE Graswich as well.
