Recap of the 2004-05 NBA Basketball Season

The '04 - '05 season continued the rise of the East.

Prior to the beginning of this season, Shaquille O'Neal was traded to the Miami Heat, reportedly due to a fallout with former teammate Kobe Bryant. Phil Jackson also left the Lakers, to be replaced by Rudy Tomjanovich. The Lakers would miss out on the NBA playoffs for only the fifth time in franchise history.

This year was the first season that the league separated into six divisions of five teams, instead of the previous four divisions of differing numbers of teams. As part of the repositioning, the New Orleans Hornets move from the Eastern Conference to the Western Conference. Charlotte also returned to the NBA fold, with the Charlotte Bobcats becoming the league's 30th franchise.

One highlight of the season happened early: in a tense game between the Detroit Pistons and the Indiana Pacers, with 45.9 seconds to go, a major altercation broke out between players and fans. This resulted in record breaking suspensions, most prominent of which was Ron Artest, who received the longest suspension in NBA history, missing 73 games and the playoffs.

The Phoenix Suns ended the season with the best record in the NBA, 62 - 20, with the help of an offseason acquiring of Steve Nash - and the offensive-minded Mike D'Antoni being hired as head coach. The San Antonio Spurs and the Miami Heat tied for second best, while the Dallas Mavericks came in third.

The All-Star game was played in Denver, with the Eastern Conference defeating the West 125 – 115. Allen Iverson, from the Philadelphia 76ers, was named the MVP of the game.

The Bulls, fielding one of the youngest rosters in NBA history, began the season 0 - 9 but rallied to make the playoffs for the first time since their 1998 championship season. The Washington Wizards, coincidentally, also made their first appearance in the playoffs since the team had changed their name for the '97 – 98 season. The Heat, in their first season with Shaq, swept through the first two rounds of the postseason but succumbed to defending champions Detroit in the Eastern Conference Finals, 4 - 3.

The Spurs and the Pistons contested for the 2005 NBA championship crown, with San Antonio edging out Detroit by seven points in the final game of a seven game series. Tim Duncan was honored as the Finals MVP.

Other postseason honors included the Defensive Player of the Year award, given to Ben Wallace of the Pistons, and the Sixth Man of the Year award, presented to Ben Gordon of the Chicago Bulls. Emeka Okafor, of the Charlotte Bobcats, took home the Rookie of the Year award, while D'Antoni, head coach of the Suns, was named Coach of the Year. Steve Nash, also from Phoenix, took home the regular-season MVP trophy; Bobby Simmons, from the Los Angeles Clippers, was honored with the Most Improved Player award.
