The Greatest Conference Finals Series in NBA History

1993 Western Conference Finals

Date: May 24-June 5, 1993                                                                                      Teams and result: Phoenix Suns over Seattle Supersonics in seven games.

After years of being surrounded by a not-so-great cast in Philly, Charles Barkley finally had some help after being dealt to the Suns prior to the '92-'93 season. Sir Charles had a crazy triple-double in Game 5 with 43 points, 15 boards and 10 dimes. In Game 7, he put up 44 points and 24 boards, living up to every bit of his MVP season.

On the series he averaged 25.6 PPG and 13.9 RPG against a young and talented, Shawn Kemp whose most stunning stat of the series was his 3.4 blocks per game. The deciding game is also memorable for Phoenix going 57-64 from the line (yes 64) against Seattle's 28-36, a 29-point swing in a 13-point win. Conspiracy buffs stand up.
