The Sacramento Kings are one of the oldest continuously operating professional basketball franchises in the nation. They originated in Rochester, New York, as the Rochester Seagrams (a semi-professional team) in 1923. They eventually joined the NBA as the Royals, and won the NBA championship in 1951.
The team, however, found it increasingly difficult to turn a profit in the comparatively small market of Rochester and relocated to Cincinnati in 1957, becoming the Cincinnati Royals. In 1972 the team relocated to Kansas City, Missouri, and was renamed the Kansas City-Omaha Kings before simply becoming the Kansas City Kings in 1975. The team failed to find success in its market and moved to Sacramento in 1985.
The Sacramento Kings posted a losing record in each of their first 13 years in Sacramento—finishing in last or second-to-last place 10 times during that stretch—despite the strong play of all-star shooting guard Mitch Richmond for much of the 1990s. The franchise’s fortunes began to turn in the 1998–1999 season, and Sacramento Kings Ticket Holders saw the Kings qualify for the first of 8 consecutive post-season appearances. The high point of this streak came in the 2001–2002 season, when the team, led by forwards Chris Webber and Peja Stojakovic, had the best record in the NBA and reached the Western Conference finals, which it lost to the Los Angeles Lakers in an exciting 7-game series. Sacramento has failed to return to the play-offs since 2006 as the team became known more for managerial and off-court disputes than on-court play.
