Ranking the Top 50 Sacramento Kings, Pick No. 11


"Go Speed Racer, Go Speed Racer, Go Speed Racer, Gooooooooo!!!"

Kevin Martin rounds out the Top 10 of the Greatest Sacramento Kings of All Time as chosen by you, the Sactown Royalty readers. In case you hadn't noticed, TZ was kind enough to put up a much asked for widget on the left sidebar of the frontpage that tracks the list as it is compiled, so everyone has a handy reference.

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.

Today's contestants: Lionel Simmons, Brad Miller, Metta World Peace*, LaSalle Thompson, Spud Webb, Jason Williams, Otis Thorpe and Corliss Williamson. After the jump, a statistical breakdown of their time in a Kings uniform.

*As of today, the player formerly known as Ron Artest has legally changed his name to Metta World Peace. In keeping with the times, I've updated our poll to reflect this. He's also changing his jersey number to #70, because, and I quote verbatim, "... it’s like something to do with the universe". Never change, Metta-Metta.
