The Sacramento Kings have certainly fallen on hard times in recent years, staying near the bottom of the Western Conference. However, this is an organization with a rich history and a litany of quality talent. Looking specifically at Kings point guards, these are the five best in the franchise’s history.
Though Ford’s run in the NBA and with the Kansas City Kings was brief, he was fantastic when he first came into the league. In the first three of his four seasons with the Kings, Ford put up 16.5 points, 8.2 assists and 1.8 steals per game while shooting 46.8 percent from the floor. It’d have been nice to see a more sustained run, but he was quite effective when he first came on the scene.
Webb is better remembered for his days in Atlanta and his performance in the Dunk Contest, but his four years with the Kings were still exciting. In the early 90s, Webb averaged 13.7 points, 6.7 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game while still being a physical phenomenon.
Based on personal preference, Jason Williams would top any and every list talking about all-time greats. He only started his career with Sacramento, but he infused life into the team with his explosive and creative style of play. His time with the Kings was short, but memorable to say the least.
Bibby was a fantastic player in this league for some time, but his run with successful Kings teams in the early-to-mid 2000s was top-notch. From 2001-07, Bibby averaged 17.7 points, 5.4 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game while shooting 43.9 percent from the floor and 37.6 percent from three.
Playing for the Kings in Cincinnati, Kansas City and Omaha, Archibald started his career with the team and was a monster. From 1970-76, the guard put up 25.2 points, 8.1 assists, 1.5 steals and 2.8 rebounds per game on 46.7 percent shooting. Having the success he did without the three-point line, he was a beast in his time and the best in Kings’ history.
