The 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 and joined the?National Basketball League?in 1945 as the?Rochester Royals.?They jumped to the?Basketball Association of America, forerunner of the NBA, in 1948. As the Royals, the team was often successful on the court, winning the?NBA championship?in?1951. It, 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?because it initially split its home games between Kansas City and?Omaha, Nebraska. In?1975, the Kings ceased playing home games in Omaha and simply became the?Kansas City Kings. The team again failed to find success in its market and moved to Sacramento in?1985.
The Kings are the only team in the?major professional North American sports leagues?located in Sacramento.
