Corliss "Big Nasty" Williamson won last Friday's vote easily, and so joins our list as the 16th Greatest Sacramento King of All-Time.

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: LaSalle Thompson, Spud Webb, Otis Thorpe, Kenny Smith, Brian Grant, Eddie Johnson, Walt Williams, Danny Ainge, Rodney McCray and Antoine Carr. After the jump, a statistical breakdown of their time in a Kings uniform.
