|Preseason: Sacramento Kings
vs Los Angeles Lakers
|October 4, 2018
The Sacramento Kings are a professional basketball team in the National Basketball Association (the NBA). The Sacramento Kings play in the Pacific Division of the Western Conference with four other teams: the Los Angeles Lakers, the Phoenix Suns, the Los Angeles Clippers and the Golden State Warriors. Kings tickets will surely be hard to come by during the 2014-2015 NBA schedule.
Sacramento Kings 2014-2015 Outlook
General Manager Pete D’Alessandro told Jones: "We’re not trying to be patient anymore, we’re not. We want to win more, we want to be more exciting."
Kudos to the Kings for aiming high, for trying to reward a loyal fanbase by changing the culture. But prioritizing wins with a roster that simply isn’t cut out to collect many of them might be a mistake. It’s dangerous to shift into short-term success mode too early; it can cut the legs out from a rebuilding process in a way that is sometimes unfixable.
Sacramento will start Darren Collison, Ben McLemore, Rudy Gay, Jason Thompson and DeMarcus Cousins, which sounds intriguing on paper.
But when you realize that the Kings’ most frequently used five-man unit last year featured these same players with the departed Isaiah Thomas at point guard instead of Collison and that said unit managed a net rating of minus-5.0 points per 100 possessions, per NBA.com, it’s hard to see where the belief that this team can win comes from.
Maybe it’s the additions of Ramon Sessions, Omri Casspi and rookie Nik Stauskas. Maybe it’s faith in Cousins’ continued improvement. So we can only wait and see.
Sleep Train Arena
The Sacramento Kings play their home games at Sleep Train Arena. Sleep Train Arena (originally ARCO Arena, later Power Balance Pavilion) is an indoor arena, located in Sacramento, California. Opened in 1988, it is the home of the National Basketball Associations Sacramento Kings. The arena is named for The Sleep Train, a chain of mattress and bed retailers based in Rocklin, California.
Other notable events include the five-day 1995 Billy Graham Greater Sacramento Crusade, which 177,000 people attended. A crowd of 47,500 people reportedly showed up on one night of the event, when Michael W. Smith was the musical guest; only 18,000 people were permitted to inside and many watched on outside television screens.
Sleep Train Arena has also hosted a PBR Built Ford Tough Series bull riding event every year since 2005. The arena hosted World Extreme Cagefightings first ever pay-per-view event, WEC 48, on April 24, 2010. It also hosted the WECs two biggest events ever, WEC 34, Faber vs. Pulver 1, and WEC 41, Brown vs. Faber 2, with an average of 1,300,500 viewers on Versus each. It also hosted WEC.
ARCOs sponsorship agreement ran out in February 2011. The arena was renamed Power Balance Pavilion on March 1, 2011 for its new sponsor, Power Balance, a manufacturer of sports wristbands. On October 15, 2012, the arena assumed its current name when The Sleep Train purchased the naming rights. The Sacramento Kings will stay at the Sleep Train Arena till 2016, at which time they will move into the New Sacramento arena downtown.

The Sacramento Kings franchise originally started in the city of Rochester, New York in 1945. The franchise played in the National Basketball League (the NBL) as the Rochester Royals from 1945 through 1957. The Rochester Royals won the NBL Championship in both 1946 and 1947. The early teams were led by Bob Davies, Al Cervi, George Glamack and Otto Graham (a future NFL Hall of Famer). Following the 1948 NBL season, 4 teams from the NBL joined the Basketball Association of America (the BAA) – the Rochester Royals, the Fort Wayne Pistons, the Minneapolis Lakers and the Indianapolis Jets. The following year, the BAA merged with the NBL to form the NBA and the Rochester Royals were a charter member of the NBA.
