A list of the best Sacramento Kings of all time. The Sacramento Kings have moved cities more than any other team in NBA history. Joining the NBA in 1949 as the Rochester Royals, the team experienced success. The Royals won its only championship, defeating the New York Knicks in 1951. These early Rochester teams featured nine future Pro Basketball Hall of Famers like Arnie Risen, Maurice Stokes and Jack Twyman. In 1957, the team left Rochester for Cincinnati.

In Cincinnati, Oscar Robertson established himself as one of the best players in basketball history. The team was a constant contender with Robertson averaging a triple double in some season and winning the MVP Award and was a nine-time All Star. But management broke up those great teams and the best players in team history ended up being traded away, as was Robertson.

After moving to Kansas City and changing its name to the Kings, the team moved to Sacramento in 1985. It took the Kings a while, but at the end of the 1990s, the Kings finally had its most prosperous period since its early days. Franchise icons like Chris Webber, Mike Bibby, Peja Stojakovic and Vlade Divac carried Sacramento as far as Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals in 2002. The Kings lost to the Lakers in that controversial series, but the players on that team remain some of the most beloved in Kings history.

This is a list of the best Sacramento Kings of all time. If you see someone who should be on this list and isn't, feel free to add him. Vote or rerank this list according to who you think should be considered the best player in Royals/Kings history.
