Los Angeles Kings Set Record Straight: They're Not From Sacramento

The NHL's Los Angeles Kings have been the NHL's Los Angeles Kings for 45 years. They've never won a Stanley Cup, but they are on the cusp of their first Western Conference title since 1993, when the Western Conference was still the Campbell Conference.

With this success, the coverage of the team in California and beyond has picked up considerably, and ... well, there's another team in the state that wears purple and black and calls themselves the Kings. They play in the NBA, a different sport, and in Sacramento, a different city.

That hasn't stopped people from confusing the two, however, and the L.A. Kings have had just about enough of it. They've set the record straight with a handy infographic.

Via the Kings website (you can see a larger version there):

My favorite part: Years Kings have either played in Sacramento, thought about playing in Sacramento, or invested in a feasibility report on a potential move to Sacramento: 0.

Points for the Brad Doty reference, too. The Kings are amazing, and if their Twitter account didn't already confirm that, this highly informative infographic certainly did.
