Utilizing Facebook's 360-degree video capability and the Ricoh Theta camera, the Sacramento Kings became one of the first NBA teams to activate a 360-degree video online.

Prior to tip-off of Tuesday's game against the Houston Rockets, the Ricoh Theta camera was placed court side during the team's warmups.

Whether it is Rudy Gay hoisting jumpers from the baseline or fans snapping pictures from the sideline, the video allows fans to see a multitude of in-arena elements and angles, even though the video is just one-minute long.

Check out the complete 360-degree experience below and stay tuned for more from the #KingsLab! From your computer, you can click to drag around in any direction while the video is playing. Smartphone or tablet users can move their device around while viewing the video from Facebook.
