Measuring success for the Kings’ rookie will come with time. Kings fans have heard it all since the team selected Greek big man Georgios Papagiannis with the 13th pick of this year’s draft. On the one hand, Big Papa’s selection is evident of a myopic Vlade Divac draft strategy, one infatuated with a big man who does not clearly complement the team’s best player. On the other...
