This one's easy, not at all like trying to pick the best pizza parlor in town or worst "Rocky" sequel.
Who do you trot out for an all-time Kings starting five in the Sacramento era?
The Bee asked three men who observed countless Kings games to reflect upon the past 28 seasons and jot down who they believed to be the era's best starting lineup consisting of two guards, two forwards and one center.
The selection panel included Jerry Reynolds, who coached and worked in the Kings' front office for 28 seasons. In more recent years, Reynolds has provided TV color work with another panelist, Grant Napear, the Kings play-by-play man for 25 years.
And there's Gary Gerould, who has called more than 2,000 games as the Kings' radio voice since opening night in Sacramento in 1985.
"Wow," Gerould said in trying to round a long list of Kings names down to five. "So many good players."
The consensus on all three lists was shooting guard Mitch Richmond from the 1990s and a Kings trio from the early 2000s decade that spearheaded the franchise's glory run in forwards Peja Stojakovic and Chris Webber and center Vlade Divac.
Reynolds, Gerould and The Bee independently produced the same lineup, with Reggie Theus as the point guard. Theus was the Kings' first star player in Sacramento, where he averaged 20 points a game in three seasons. Napear's point guard is Mike Bibby, also part of the 2000's group. Said Napear of Bibby: "He was the Kings' most clutch performer among the starters."
Reynolds said Theus at 6-foot-7 had remarkable skills, and his toughness belied his Hollywood looks. Theus once was sent to the floor, teeth flying, and refused to miss time.
"Reggie had Hall of Fame talent," Reynolds said. "He didn't achieve a hall-of-fame career, but he could run the point, play shooting guard, and could defend when he wanted to, which wasn't very often."
Added Gerould: "That's the thing that impressed me - Reggie had the pretty-boy look, but man, he was tough as nails. In his three years here, he averaged eight assists."
In the 1990s, only Michael Jordan was widely viewed in the NBA as a better off-guard defender than Richmond, whose No. 2 jersey hangs retired in the Sleep Train Arena rafters.
"He's the best two-way player in Sacramento history," Napear said. "His defense on (Gary) Payton of Seattle in the (1996) playoffs will always stick with me."
Said Gerould: "He carried this franchise."
"Just a terrific player," added Reynolds.
All three agreed Webber was the most talented starter - a passer, an inside scorer and a rebounder. And he had perhaps the worst luck, too. It was 10 years ago next month that Webber went down with a blown knee against Dallas in the playoffs. He was never the same, athletically.
Webber's No. 4 jersey also hangs in the arena rafters, a testament to his seven seasons here when he averaged 23.4 points and 10.6 rebounds.
"No question that he's a great one, " Gerould said. "It's such a shame he had that injury. It pulled the plug on his career."
Napear called Webber, "maybe the best talent in franchise history."
Reynolds called him "the best player to play for the Sacramento Kings."
Stojakovic made 999 three-pointers during his seven seasons in Sacramento, averaging 18.5 points.
"The best pure shooter the Kings ever had, and maybe ever will have," Reynolds said.
Added Napear: "His chemistry on the floor with Vlade was as good as I've seen."
"My goodness. You look back at what he did and he was amazing," said Gerould.
The anchor to the Kings' Five is Divac, who was as crafty and skilled as he was personable in six seasons in Sacramento. His effect went well beyond statistics.
Reynolds called Divac, "the greatest teammate I've ever seen."
Napear said: "He was the heart and soul of this team."
And Gerould: "There have been a lot of great guys here, but man, Vlade is ahead on that list. He was special in the locker room, in the community, everywhere.
"The chemistry those guys had, it was the best basketball we've seen in 28 years in Sacramento."
