The Sacramento Kings compete in the Western Conference’s Pacific Division of the NBA as one of the oldest professional basketball teams in the U.S. today. Founded in 1923 as the Rochester Royals, they achieved early success on the court, winning the 1951 NBA championship. They made the playoffs in 1979 and again in 1980, reaching the Western Conference finals the latter year. The franchise began playing at a new stadium, the Golden 1 Center.
