Rudy Gay has seen his shares of highs and lows as he's carved out a lengthy pro career with the Memphis Grizzlies, Toronto Raptors and now with the Sacramento Kings.

He enjoyed a solid year with the Kings last season and averaged career-highs of 21.1 points, 3.7 assists and 19.7 PER in 68 games. He even upped his scoring average to 23.8 points in the 19 games that George Karl coached.

But as he enters his 10th NBA season, it seems like ESPN isn't giving Gay the kind of respect he thinks he deserves. Needless to say, he got a little salty when he found out about his No. 70 showing on the annual ESPN NBA Player Rankings.

Gay was No. 51 last season and he is the only Kings player to make the Top 140 list besides DeMarcus Cousins, who has yet to be ranked.

Does Gay have a point or do you agree with the ranking?
