Old is Gold
Formed as the Rochester Seagrams in 1923 in New York, the franchise has the distinction of having one of the longest operative histories in the NBA. After a gap of almost two decades, the franchise changed its name to the Rochester Royals and joined the National Basketball League in 1945. Three years later, the Royals moved to the Basketball Association of America, which would later become the present day NBA.
Turning Success Into Numbers
The Rochester Royals were one of the most successful franchises in the NBA, clinching the championship in 1951. However the club was not able to generate enough revenue in the limited space available in Rochester. In order to expand, the franchise moved to Ohio, and became the Cincinnati Royals in 1957. The club would move again in 1972, this time to Kansas City, Missouri becoming the Kansas City Kings. Fourth time proved to be the charm as the club finally settled into its present home in Sacramento in 1985.
Hoping for the Best
With one NBA championship, one Conference title and three Division titles under its belt, Sacramento fans know they have the team to go the whole distance.
