Formed as an expansion franchise into the CBA in 1982, the Albany Patroons originally played in the Washington Avenue Armory. The team later moved to the Times Union Center, then known as the Knickerbocker Arena.
NBA legendary coach Phil Jackson won his first championship ring as a coach when he guided the Patroons to the 1984 CBA championship. The Patroons won a second championship in 1988, this time under head coach Bill Musselman who later coached the Minnesota Timberwolves.
For the 1992–93 season, they were renamed the Capital Region Pontiacs, as the team received sponsorship from local car dealerships. After that season, the franchise was relocated to Connecticut, where it played as the Hartford Hellcats and then as the Connecticut Pride before folding in 2001.
