Is this the first time in history
 
That the Kings went further in the playoffs than the Lakers two years in a row?

My Laker loving co-worker thinks it is

Herby 05-20-2013 02:21 PM

I think he is correct, my first guess was maybe the early 90's, obviously in 93 the Kings went further, thought maybe 92 the year Magic retired, but the Kings lost to a garbage Oilers team in the first round that post season.

Those were the years I was concerned about. I think we made the second round like years in a row at one point. My friend told me that they were really good back, so I checked.

Well, the Lakers were involved in half of all NBA finals ever played. So if then Kings had that same success we'd be in the Stanley Cup Finals 60 times lol! And winning half of them......

MynameisKing 05-20-2013 03:01 PM

Really though we've only been in existence for 45 years but it'd be funny!!

Butch 19 05-20-2013 04:18 PM

I think it is the first time the Kings have lasted longer in the playoffs over 2 seasons than the Lakers (and they're not done either of course!!)

It amazes me that I used to be as much a Laker fan as Kings fan. The mere thought of that now is shocking. I even won suite tix to a Laker game 2 yrs ago, and it was a chore to go to Staples. It felt odd spending time in Staples, and not watching a Kings game. (shhh, it's like a library in there for Laker games)

And the Lakers have only been in LA 52 years. So there are only 7 years were we weren't playing in the same city.
They have just been that good over time. I

I remember quite clearly the only two years that the Kings outdrew the Lakers in attendance were 1975 and 1993. In both of those years, Lakers missed the playoffs (both those teams didn't play well), and the Kings had their best two years up until last season.

Now, for 2012, it must be obvious the Kings outdrew the Lakers since the Lakers had a strike-shortened season. It also occurs to me the Kings probably outdrew the Lakers in 1999 as well for the same reason. Without looking it up, I am just guessing of course, but it seems logical.

However, where both teams had full seasons, 1975 and 1993, the Kings did outdraw the Lakers. Keep in mind in those seasons the Lakers had 41 home games and the Kings had 40.

The Lakers have been very good, for a very long time.

MynameisKing 05-20-2013 09:50 PM

Laker's success starts at the top. Well, any successful venture starts at the top. So glad the Kings can lay that claim. Thank you Mrs. Anschutz ! :naughty:
