Recap of the 1993-94 NBA Basketball Season
The '93 - '94 season began with a vacuum, left by a missing superstar.
Months after the tragic death of his father, Michael Jordan shocked the basketball world by announcing his first retirement.
With the Bulls suddenly looking vulnerable, the league was energized; the championship title seemed up for grabs for any number of teams. Seven teams won 55 games or more, led by the Seattle Supersonics, who had barely missed the NBA Finals the previous year. They finished with a league-best 63 wins.
The Houston Rockets jumped out to an amazing 22 - 1 start, tying a record set in 1948 by the Washington Capitols by beginning 15 - 0 - although in the end, they finished the season with only a 58 - 24 record. The New York Knicks and the Atlanta Hawks each won 57 games, while the Phoenix Suns managed to win 56 games, even though plagued by injuries to their two stars, Charles Barkley and Kevin Johnson. David Robinson had his best season (on the regular season's final day, he scored 71 points against the Los Angeles Clippers to take home the scoring title) to lead the San Antonio Spurs to 55 victories, while the Bulls managed 55 wins as well, even without Michael Jordan.
In the '94 All-Star game, the Eastern Conference took down the West 127-118. Scottie Pippen was awarded the game's MVP honors.
In the first round of the playoffs, the Denver Nuggets became the first Number 8 seed in history to defeat a Number 1 seed, achieving what many thought was impossible when it came back from a 2 - 0 hole to eliminate the Seattle Supersonics. Houston also came back from a 2 - 0 deficit to beat Phoenix in Game 7 of Round 2, and proceeded to ride the shoulders of their oft-overlooked superstar Hakeem Olajuwon, all the way to the NBA Finals - the Rockets first appearance on the main stage since 1986.
The Knicks survived two tough series against both Chicago and Indiana
to advance to their first Finals appearance since 1973. However,
a third seven-game series in a row proved too much for New York;
Houston captured its first ever NBA title by winning Game 7, 90-84.
Because of the amazing defensive capabilities of both teams, this
was the first Finals since 1955 where neither team reached 100 points
in any game.
Olajuwon had a great series, emerging as the superstar he had quietly grown into, scoring 26.9 points per game in a series where his entire team averaged only 86.1 points per game. He was awarded both the Finals MVP and the regular-season MVP trophies.
Other honors included the Defensive Player of the Year award, given
to Hakeem Olajuwon of the Houston Rockets, and the Sixth Man of
the Year award, presented to Dell Curry of the Charlotte Hornets.
Chris Webber, of the Golden State Warriors, took home the Rookie
of the Year award, while Lenny Wilkins, of the Atlanta Hawks, was
named Coach of the Year. The Most Improved player award was given
to Don Maclean of the Washington Bullets.
