Look at this

Damn the Lakers are good

There was a period where it did happen before Showtime
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.
