Despite 20 losing seasons since 1985, the Kings have had some excellent players. One person's list of favorites:
Best offensive players: Chris Webber had a feathery touch and mastered multiple angles of attack. Some say he could have used his amazing physique to greater advantage, but why quibble?
In seven seasons, Mitch Richmond averaged 21.9 to 25.9 points per season with defenses pounding him relentlessly. If not the best scorer, he surely was the toughest.
People expected Peja Stojakovic to win a scoring title, his touch was so sublime. He wasn't a Hall of Famer, but he was important to those good Kings teams.
Best defensive player: The popular choice is Doug Christie. He was like a pit bull with long arms and sweet footwork. And his nice-guy demeanor hid a hit man's soul.
Best passers: Jason Williams' short tenure with the Kings shouldn't obscure the video-game creativity of his handiwork.
The offense was initiated through Vlade Divac, and like many European big men, he created art when dishing to teammates.
Some might say Reggie Theus was overly flashy, but his assist numbers show he could help others score, and that's more important than how much his suits cost.
Best rebounders: Webber's long arms were attached to the softest hands of any big man of his era.
DeMarcus Cousins? Maybe someday. The tools are there, but
well, we know the rest.
