Sacramento Kings Playoff TicketsThe Sacramento Kings NBA franchise has a long history of basketball. They originated in Rochester, N.Y., as the Seagrams, a semi-pro basketball team. The teams’ official introduction to the NBA wouldn’t come until 1945. Debuting as the Royals, they were able to showcase an immense amount of talent, which helped them defeat the New York Knicks and win the franchise's only NBA Championship during the 1951 season. They relocated two more times, first to Cincinnati in 1957 and then to Kansas City in 1972. The team changed their name in Kansas City to the Omaha Kings but later shortened the name to the Kings in 1975. In 1985, the Kings moved to Sacramento, where they have remained ever since. They have had 10 trips to the playoffs since they became the Sacramento Kings: six ended in the first round and the rest were concentrated in a four-season streak between 2001-2004, where their best showing was a loss to the Lakers in the Conference Finals in 2002.
