Shareef v. KT: Round 1

I honestly didn't think this would be an issue. But apparently, Kenny Thomas seriously thinks he has a claim to the starting power forward throne this season.

His reasons? He's started most of the games in his six-year NBA career and he was a starter in Sacramento last season. (KT, of course, came to the team in February, and SAR is a nine-year starter.)

KT doesn't seem like he's going to problem if he doesn't get the starting spot, but the fact it's an issue at all is mindboggling. Apparently, Kings Nation agrees.

This poll on shows that 81 percent of respondents feel Shareef Abdur-Rahim should be the starter. In fact, almost as many people so far have voted that the Kings should find a new PF as have voted to insert KT into the top of the rotation.

This "battle" will continue to be fought through preseason. Let's just give Round 1 to Shareef, though.

The Sacramento Kings are a tough act to follow, literally.

SKB does the dirty work so you can forget about the blood, sweat and tears.

Oh, you'll still need the tears in April, though.
