The Kings were the best team in the 2001-02 season, and they were robbed by the referees of a chance to make it to the NBA finals. Unfortunately, they also swindled themselves at the beginning of that season, signing Chris Webber to a $127 million dollar contract.

As great as C-Webb was, he was never good enough to command that kind of money, and his knee injuries coupled with his bloated contract helped bring upon the downfall of one the most successful eras in franchise history.
