The Greatest Conference Finals Series in NBA History

1993 Eastern Conference Finals

Date: May 23-June 4, 1993
Teams and result: Chicago Bulls over New York Knicks in six games.

The Knicks were actually favored over the two-time defending champ Chicago Bulls. After taking the first game, things popped off when John Starks threw down "The Dunk" to cap a 2-0 series lead. But the '90s Bulls are lionized for a reason, and they showed us why by winning the next two contests easily.

In Game 5, the Knicks had a great chance to retake the series lead but it was denied (four times) when Charles Smith got his game winning putback(s) rejected again and again and again and again. Game Six was an eight point victory for the Bulls; they had their chance to three-peat. So did they? You should already know that.
