Ranking the Top 50 Sacramento Kings, Pick No. 16

For those saying Tyreke doesn't have the body of work to be on this list... Exhibit A (above), B, C, D, and E.

In picking Tyreke Evans as the 15th Greatest King of All-Time, we have selected our youngest, and as of now, only current player. I know many of us are hoping that 10 years from now if we were to re-do this list, Tyreke would end up somewhere in the Top 5 easily, and it is a real possibility.

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.
