Recap of the 2005-06 NBA Basketball Season

The '05 - '06 season needed to fix some image problems.

Due in large part to the Pistons/Pacers brawl that took place during the previous season, the league felt it was time to do some damage control; therefore, a new dress code was implemented at the beginning of the year by commissioner David Stern. Many players criticized the new clothing rules, saying that they were a slap in the face of a hip-hop culture that the NBA exploited when it felt the need, but to date, it's unclear whether or not any punishments have been handed out for a violation of the code.

Speaking of dress, Scottie Pippen, Reggie Miller and Karl Malone had their jerseys retired, by the Chicago Bulls, Indiana Pacers, and Utah Jazz, respectively.

A couple of NBA records were broken this season: in a January game, Los Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant scored 81 points in a game against the Toronto Raptors, the second-highest single game scoring total in league history; the first was Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point game in 1962. Also, in his final game of the regular season, Ray Allen made his 269th three-pointer, setting a new NBA record for treys in a season.

The All-Star game was played in Houston, where the Eastern Conference beat the West 122 - 120. Lebron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers was honored as the games Most Valuable Player.

The Detroit Pistons finished with the best record, 64 - 18, while the San Antonio Spurs went 63 - 19 for a close second. The Dallas Mavericks finished third with 60 wins. All five teams in the Central Division made the postseason; this was the first time an entire division made the playoffs in twenty years.

The Mavericks swept the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round of the playoffs, before knocking off the Spurs in a tense seven-game series. After dismantling the Suns in six games, they then clashed with the Miami Heat for the NBA title. The Heat, meanwhile, eliminated Chicago, the New Jersey Nets and the defending champions, the Detroit Pistons, on their way to the Finals.

By taking the championship series in six games, the Heat won their first NBA title in franchise history, becoming the first of the four '88 - '89 expansion teams to win rings; they also became only the third franchise in history to win the title after starting the series 0 - 2. Miami shooting guard Dwyane Wade was named as the Finals MVP.

Other post season honors included the Defensive Player of the Year award, given again to Ben Wallace of the Pistons, and the Sixth Man of the Year award, presented to Mike Miller of the Memphis Grizzlies. Chris Paul, of the New Orleans Hornets, took home the Rookie of the Year award, while Avery Johnson, head coach of the Mavericks, was named Coach of the Year. Boris Diaw was honored with the Most Improved Player award, and Steve Nash was named regular-season MVP; both played with the Phoenix Suns.
