Wayman Tisdale - Throwin' It Down

It was the closest vote yet, but in the end you chose Wayman Tisdale as the 6th greatest Sacramento King of all time. Wayman passed away in 2009 after a battle with cancer in his knee. If you have an hour or so, check out the Wayman Tisdale Story, a documentary of his life and two passions: Basketball and Music. Rest in Peace, Wayman.

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.
