This poster is only $12.95 on ebay.  If Ziller doesn't beat you to it that is.

Walt "The Wizard" Williams is your 22nd Greatest King of All-Time.  Fun Fact: Walt Williams has been the only Kings rookie to have ever scored 40 points in a game, doing so in a ridiculous 56 point demolishing of the Sixers.  That blowout was preceded 4 days earlier by a 58 point victory against the Mavericks, with both these games all part of a 6 game winning streak.

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.

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.
