Weekend poll: Which Kings rookie guard will have a better NBA career?

Leading Off: 10 pressing questions in the world of sports

• With the Kings’ Ray McCallum playing well since joining the rotation, does it make you wonder which rookie guard, McCallum or Ben McLemore, will have the better NBA career?

• McLemore has taken more than 10 shots just four times in the Kings’ last 18 games, so why is his position called “shooting guard?”

• After San Antonio dismantled Miami 111-87 on Thursday, does anyone think the Spurs are too old to make it back to the NBA Finals?

• Quarterback Colin Kaepernick has led the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game in back-to-back seasons, but is he worth the $20 million per year it might take for the 49ers to keep him?

• The 49ers have been very successful with Kaepernick at quarterback, but is it more because of him or coach Jim Harbaugh’s system?

• With the Raiders searching for a starting quarterback – again – should they consider signing veteran free agents Michael Vick or Josh McCown to play one season while they develop a draft pick?

• The Raiders have the fifth pick in the draft; should they use it on Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel if he’s available?

• With Raiders owner Mark Davis saying the team needs a new stadium to stay in Oakland, will he do what his dad did and move the team to Los Angeles?

• If Wichita State finishes the season undefeated, should the Shockers be a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament despite playing in the Missouri Valley Conference?

• If Stanford loses to Utah today and fails to make the tournament for the sixth consecutive season, will the Cardinal replace coach Johnny Dawkins?
