Ranking the Top 50 Sacramento Kings, Pick No. 12

New, comments

At the eleventh spot on this list we welcome arguably the most exciting (and infuriating) player to have ever played in Sacramento, Jason Williams. Love him or hate him, you were watching him.

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, Ron Artest*, LaSalle Thompson, Spud Webb, Otis Thorpe, Corliss Williamson, and Kenny Smith. After the jump, a statistical breakdown of their time in a Kings uniform.

*As some have pointed out, Ron Artest's name change to Metta World Peace was delayed until Sep. 16th, due to unpaid traffic tickets.
