Take-Two Interactive has released its All-Time Sacramento Kings team that will be playable in “NBA 2K18.”

Here are the starters for the virtual team.

  • Oscar Robinsin (overall rating 97)
  • Mitch Richmond (94)
  • Peja Stojakovic (88)
  • Chris Webber (93)
  • Jerry Lucas (94)

See any glaring oversights? Big snubs?

DeMarcus Cousins (90) is coming off the bench with Nate Archibald (93).

Rounding out the bench mob are: Mike Bibby (88); Vlade Divac (88); Reggie Theus (85); Jason Williams (84); Antoine Carr (84); Rudy Gay (83); Tyreke Evans (83); and Doug Christie (83).

There’s another interesting feature in “NBA 2K18” - “classic” teams. When the latest installment in the 2K series continues, the 2001-2002 Kings team will be available for players to match against, say, the 2017 Golden State Warriors, as part of 16 “Classic” teams. That was the most winnningest team in Sacramento history, with a 61-21 (.744) record. The squad lost to the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Finals.

The new game version will be released Sept. 19 on PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

On May 26, 2002, the Sacramento Kings were looking to go ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers 3-1 in the Western Conference finals. Kings center Vlade Divac slapped the ball out of the key to the three-point line. The rest is history.
