Ranking the Top 50 Sacramento Kings, Pick No. 13

Brad_miller_medium

This actually happened in real life.

Twelfth in our rankings, Brad Miller takes his place among the Greatest Sacramento Kings of All-Time.  With Miller out of the running, all Sacramento All-Stars are off the board (At least until Jimmer puts in half a season, am I right?).

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.
