It's safe to say the season for the Sacramento Kings hasn't gone as expected. That's saying something for a team that has missed the playoffs for seven straight years and was predicted to extend the streak to eight.
Despite the team's overall struggles, a few of the players on the Kings are having good individual seasons. On the one hand, that's a moot point, since you play to win the game. On the other hand, you don't win many games without effective players.
The fact that the Kings have effective players is encouraging. But in order to win they need to get more of them, and they need to learn how to play together. But that's a topic for another day.
The task at hand is power ranking each player on the team. The top three players are indisputable, even if one wants to argue the order in which they're ranked among the three. From there, it's kind of a convoluted mess of role players, veterans and youngsters. Nonetheless, each player has been ranked.
Before getting to the rankings, a quick word on how it was compiled. The players were ranked based on their overall season performance, as well as their performance recently. The overall numbers held more water, but those that have struggled or excelled recently were judged accordingly.
With that, let's get to the rankings. Be sure to weigh in on the comments section if you think a player is ranked too high or too low.
