Jason's facial expression in this photo matches that of Kings fans the night he was drafted
Jason Thompson is your 37th Greatest Sacramento King of All-Time. Jason Thompson might have been the biggest draft surprise in recent memory (although Hedo and Peja's selection probably trump him overall) and while he's unlikely to ever be a star, he's done very well in his few years here. Also, if you want a laugh, take a look at the 2008 Open Draft Thread, possibly the most hilarious thread on StR, and the reason I found the site myself, as it was linked to by various other sports sites, amused by our incredulity.
HOW TO VOTE:
Voting is done via the comment section. To vote, simply add a comment with the name of the person you would like to vote for. Feel free to explain your vote if you wish, or not. If you are a lurker who doesn't post much, this could be a good opportunity to create an account (it is super easy and completely free) and start interacting with the community. Voting ends at midnight (Pacific Time) so get your comments in before then. Any votes after that will not count. You also may not switch your vote after you have voted.
When voting feel free to use any criteria you wish in your evaluation, but only take into account a player's career as a Sacramento King. If a player you want to vote for isn't on the poll, feel free to mention him in the comments to be added.
