2014/2015 Sacramento Kings Schedule

The Sacramento Kings are set to open their 2014-15 season at home for the second straight season. Sacramento plays to a national audience on four occasions on NBA TV, featuring games versus the Indiana Pacers (Friday, Dec. 5), Detroit Pistons (Saturday, Dec. 13), New York Knicks (Saturday, Dec. 27) and at the Washington Wizards (Saturday, Mar. 14). The Sacramento Kings have struggled in recent seasons and Sacramento Kings ticket sales are one of the worst in the NBA.

Sacramento Kings History

The Kings is one of the most nomadic franchises in the NBA. They were established as the Rochester Royals in 1945, moved to Cincinnati in 1957, Kansas City in 1972 and Sacramento in 1985. The franchise won the NBA Championship in 1951 but since that season has never returned to the NBA Finals. The Royals were regular playoff qualifiers in the 1960s but struggled to make regular playoff appearances in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. The Kings traded to receive Chris Webber in 1998 and he was able to lead the franchise to their most successful period since the 1960s. They qualified for the playoffs for nine straight seasons and were extremely unlucky not to reach the NBA Finals during the 2002/2003 NBA schedule. Webber left the Kings in 2005 and the franchise has struggled ever since. The franchise was sold in 2013 signalling new owners, new beginnings, and a rebuilding of the team. Vivek Ranadive, the new owner, intends to keep the team in Sacramento - an issue that plagued the team before the sale.

Sacramento Kings Star Player: DeMarcus Cousins

DeMarcus Cousins was selected with the fifth overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft by the Sacramento Kings. Cousins had a strong rookie season and was selected in the NBA All-Rookie First Team. The start of his second season was plagued by discipline problems but he pulled his act together over the second half of the season and finished the year with very impressive statistics. In March 2014, Cousins recorded a career high 6 blocks, along with 13 points and 14 rebounds, in a 89-99 loss to the Detroit Pistons. Cousins is still very young and will need to mature over the coming seasons if he is going to become an elite player in the NBA.

Sacramento Kings Star From the Past: Oscar Robertson

Oscar Robertson was selected with the first pick of the 1960 NBA Draft by the Cincinnati Royals (now known as the Sacramento Kings). Robertson had an immediate impact on the NBA, winning the Rookie of the Year Award and being selected in the All-Star team. Robertson became a regular All-Star selection and won the NBA All-Star Game MVP Award on three occasions. In 1961 Robertson became the only player in NBA history to average a triple double for the season and in 1964 won the NBA MVP Award. Robertson left the Royals in 1970 to join the Milwaukee Bucks and led the franchise to their only ever NBA Championship in 1971. Robertson is a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, was voted one of the fifty greatest players in NBA history and was named in both the NBA 35th and 50th Anniversary Team.

Sacramento Kings Head Coach: Mike Malone

Mike Malone was hired as the head coach of Sacramento in 2013, after an extensive career as an assistant coach with both the NCAA and NBA, with teams including the New York Knicks, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Golden State Warriors. With Cleveland, Malone helped coach the Cavaliers to five consecutive playoff appearances, including the 2007 NBA Finals, and a franchise-record, league-best 66-16 season in the 2008-09 season. In 2012, Malone was named the best assistant coach in the NBA by NBA General Managers. Malone will hopefully help the Kings reach their first winning season since 2005/2006.
