Sacramento Kings History
The Sacramento Kings' lineage traces to Rochester, New York, where they played under four names, including the Royals, for 12 years (1945–57). Led by Hall of Famers Bob Davies, Bobby Wanzer and Arnie Risen, the team defeated the New York Knicks to win the NBA championship in 1951, the highlight of a seven-year run in the playoffs.
The Royals moved to Cincinnati for the 1957–58 season and added local college standout Oscar Robertson in 1960. Led by the "Big O," they advanced to the division finals in the 1962–63 and 1963–64 seasons, with the second year featuring contributions from Rookie of the Year Jerry Lucas.
After a five-year run of futility in the late 1960s and early '70s, the team relocated to Kansas City, adopting the name the Kings, as the city's MLB team was already named the Royals. For three years, the franchise divided its home games between Kansas City and Omaha, Nebraska, and were known as the Kansas City-Omaha Kings. Led by Coach of the Year Phil Johnson, they made the playoffs in 1974–75. In the 10 seasons that followed as the Kansas City Kings, the team made the playoffs four times, most memorably in 1980–81 behind guard Otis Birdsong.
The franchise relocated to Sacramento in 1985, but failed to post a winning record until the lockout-shortened 1998–99 season, when a team led by Chris Webber, Vlade Divac, Vernon Maxwell, Scot Pollard, and Jon Barry went 27-23. It was the first of eight consecutive seasons in the playoffs, highlighted by a trip to the 2002 Conference Finals.
In 2023, under new coach Mike Brown and All-Stars Domantas Sabonis and De’Aaron Fox, the Kings advanced to the playoffs, ultimately losing in the first round to reigning NBA champions the Golden State Warriors in a close seven-game series.

The Sacramento Kings play at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California. The seating map for Golden 1 Center can be viewed here.
I'm here from Japan to support you! The result was disappointing, but the atmosphere of the arena, including food and drink, was wonderful.
I recently went to the G1C for game 7 of Kings vs Warriors. Everything was great, except for the seating. I'm a big, beautiful woman and I was uncomfortable with the size of the seats in the arena. They discriminate against people like me who are a little bigger than some others. That's why I didn't give 5 stars.
Kings are back, and a problem in the West! Warriors got lucky this year, but we’re trending up!! Pacific Division Champs let’s goooo!!
Watching a game upper level @ the G1C is not a great experience. No leg room and they don’t even pass out T-shirt’s or anything upstairs. SMH terrible
Couldn't help but feel the vibe of the City change. You can feel the excitement everywhere as you see KINGS signs, flags, billboards... We just had to support our team, our city and attend game one of our playoff run. Here we are now going to our 4th home game for game 7... Hoping we get the win and face our long time rivals, The Lakers.... The chants of Beat LA are already sounding off in my head along with all the memories of that last playoff run. Let's Go Sacramento, Stand up and Light The Beam.
The atmosphere was unbelievable! Fans going wild for the kings!
The experience was exhilerating! The atmosphere was full of energy driven by emotion and desire for a Kings' victory. THE KINGS DELIVERED!!!! AWESOME! It was the most intense and exciting Kings' game I attended!
