"Size matters not... Look at me, judge me by my size, do you?" - Yoda

Standing at only 5'6 and weighing just 133 lbs, Spud Webb never let his diminutive stature get in the way of his dreams, and he became an excellent basketball player, and has been voted as the 17th 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, Otis Thorpe, Kenny Smith, Brian Grant, Eddie Johnson, Walt Williams, Danny Ainge, Rodney McCray, Antoine Carr and Olden Polynice. After the jump, a statistical breakdown of their time in a Kings uniform.

P.S. Question for you guys: Now that we're getting deeper into the rankings, would you like to see more in-depth Kings records? I've been limiting it to only showing if a player was in the Top-6 of a statistical category, but I can change that to start showing Top-10 as well. What do you guys think? Will it matter to you?
