The Kings have been an historically awful NBA franchise but they did have one era of relative greatness that deserves recognition.

Sacramento appeared in the playoffs for eight straight seasons from 1999-2006 under head coach Rick Adelman and played an exciting style of basketball centered around the passing of big men Chris Webber and Vlade Divac and around the stellar shooting of Peja Stojakovic.

Webber and Divac already have their numbers retired in Sacramento and a decision by incoming rookie Ben McLemore to change his jersey number from 16 to 17 has many wondering if Stojakovic might be next.
