About the Sacramento Kings
The Sacramento Kings are an American professional basketball team based in Sacramento, California. The Kings compete in the National Basketball Association (NBA) as a member club of the league’s Western Conference Pacific Division. The Kings are the only team in the major professional North American sports leagues located in Sacramento. The Kings are the oldest franchise in the NBA, and one of the oldest continuously operating professional basketball franchises in the nation.
The team played its home games at the Sleep Train Arena from 1988 to 2016; beginning with the 2016–17 season, the Kings now play home games at the Golden 1 Center. The 17,500-seat arena is the first professional sports venue powered completely by solar energy, will save about a million gallons of water a year compared to a typical venue of its size, was built with recycled material from the mall that stood at the site before construction began and will get 90 percent of its food and beverages from within 150 miles. It became the first indoor venue to receive LEED Platinum certification, the highest level of recognition for environmentally conscious buildings. Among the most unique features are the airplane hangar doors that can be opened to turn the venue into an indoor-outdoor arena.
