The Sacramento Kings were established in 1948 and serve as one of the NBA’s most storied and turbulent franchises. The Kings have relocated a lot moving from Rochester to Cincinnati to Kansas City and finally to Sacramento in 1985. Their last title came in 1951 and they have the record for longest title drought as of 2016. Despite a brief period of success in the early 2000s, the Kings have again regressed and haven’t had a winning season in a decade. Hardcore fans and bettors looking for a cheap beat can pick them.

Heartbreak Kings: since moving to Sacramento, the Kings have had one brief period of success: the early 2000s. With stars like Chris Webber and Mike Bibby, the Kings came very close to their first NBA Finals appearance in the city when they lost a heartbreaker to the Los Angeles Lakers in a seven-game conference final. They lost the next two playoffs in game sevens as well and faded away but for that brief period, they were almost like the uncrowned western champions.
Kings of another time: the golden age for the Kings came in their earliest years when they were still in Rochester. The Kings beat the New York Knicks in seven games to win the NBA title in 1951, the franchise’s only. They won 51 games in their first year as an NBA team and didn’t have a losing season until their last three years.
Cellar dwellers: in the last decade, the Kings haven’t had a winning season and have a franchise mired with relocation talks, mismanagement and disillusioned stars. It’s a very bad atmosphere and fans wonder when the bad stretch will end but all it takes is the right player or leader to turn things for the better. For the gutsy, they can make prop bet on the Kings to make the NBA playoffs or have a winning record before the season starts under NBA Futures.
