After yet another year of All-Star injustices, maybe it's time for the league to take the voting out of the fans' hands.Every year, the voting for the team's midseason showcase is becoming more of a popularity contest. If it weren't, then such worthy players as Washington Wizards guard Rod Strickland and Milwaukee Bucks forward Glenn Robinson might be representing the East in next week's game, and Minnesota Timberwolves forward Tom Gugliotta would be making his second straight All-Star appearance for the West.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- In our continuing effort to honor and respect the Sacramento Kings, to leap on the Bobby Hurley bandwagon and take a kinder, gentler approach to an NBA team that never wins 30 games, we request a brief timeout.Excuse me, but wasn't anyone worried that things were a little too quiet at training camp? Didn't anyone think the Kings were overdue for bad news?Right on schedule, here comes Walt Williams, out four or five weeks with a stress fracture in his lower left leg. Chalk it up to Kings Luck.

LANDOVER -- It only seemed as though Bernard King popped the popcorn, toasted the hot dog buns, sold the pennants and locked up the Capital Centre when he was done last night.Maybe if he had, the Washington Bullets might have held off the Sacramento Kings, and denied them their first win of the year in eight tries.As it was, King only scored 45 points, to match Boston's Larry Bird for the NBA's top single-game scoring output this year.But the rest of the Bullets scored 37 points. Not an individual player, mind you, but the rest of the squad.

EMMITSBURG -- See the Bullets run. See the Bullets run . . . and run . . . and run.The Washington Bullets race up and down the floor of the Mount St. Mary's gym at a dizzying pace, with coach Wes Unseld exhorting the offense to run faster and his trapping defense to apply more pressure."

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - In the backs of their minds, the Washington Wizards know they stole a win last week at home against the Sacramento Kings, who came into MCI Center tired and ready to go home after an extended East Coast swing. There would be no such pilfering last night as the real Kings, the team with the best record in the NBA, slowly but surely blistered the Wizards, 109-93. Rested and relaxed and back at Arco Arena, the toughest place in the league for a road team to get a win, the Kings shook off a hesitant start, then methodically took Washington (26-23)

The Washington Bullets, with six new players on their roster, are in a major rebuilding phase this season. But it is a minor project compared to that of the Sacramento Kings, who have only three players remaining from last year's team, which won only 23 games.The growing pains have been even more severe for the Kings, who visit the Bullets (2-6) tonight. With four rookies on the roster, and forward Lionel Simmons and shooting guard Travis Mays rushed into starting jobs, Sacramento (0-7) is the only National Basketball Association team still winless.

LANDOVER -- The Sacramento Kings and Washington Bullets have a lot in common -- two struggling, young teams bound for the NBA lottery.But those were the only similarities they shared at the Capital Centre last night as the Kings registered their most lopsided road win of the season in embarrassing the Bullets, 117-97, before 7,910.Buoyed by the homecoming of former Maryland star Walt Williams, who seemingly attracted the majority of the fans, the Kings (22-48) played like spirited contenders while the Bullets (20-50)

Few things in life are harder to shake than a reputation, and since the Sacramento Kings have carried the rep of a showboating team for whom the 24 seconds spent on defense were just a brief layover before taking another shot, it's been a little difficult for many to take seriously their run near the top of the Western Conference this season. But with half a season in the books, the Kings are giving every impression that they intend to change the way they're viewed, not to mention foul up the conventional wisdom that Portland, the Lakers or San Antonio will rule the West.

While Chris Webber was negotiating with several NBA teams this summer in search of a deal similar to the one being offered by the Sacramento Kings, the Kings were trying to make a move that would help keep Webber in Sacramento. The seven-year, $122.7 million contract he eventually signed made Webber the second-highest paid player in NBA history, and the team's trade of point guard Jason Williams for Mike Bibby certainly didn't displease the team's star, either. The deal between Sacramento and the then-Vancouver Grizzlies was considered by most NBA executives a steal for the Kings.
