  • The 1993 NBA Playoffs was the postseason tournament of the National Basketball Association's 1992-93 season. The tournament concluded with the Eastern Conference champion Chicago Bulls defeating the Western Conference champion Phoenix Suns 4 games to 2 in the NBA Finals. Michael Jordan was named NBA Finals MVP for the third straight year. This was the Suns' second Western Conference title; they made their first NBA Finals appearance since 1976, losing to the Celtics.The Knicks–Pacers rivalry started in their first round encounter, which New York won 3–1. But it wasn't until the next two meetings (1994, 1995) that the rivalry became even more intense, particularly due to Reggie Miller's heroics in the Garden that made him a household name and Indiana legitimate contenders in the East.The Charlotte Hornets made their playoff debut. Their opening round series versus Boston is also noteworthy for being the last time the Celtics would make the playoffs with Kevin McHale, who retired after the series, and Robert Parish, who left as a free agent, ironically for Charlotte. Game 1 of the series would be the final game in Reggie Lewis's career, as he collapsed during the first quarter and did not play for the remainder of the series. Lewis died in July of a heart attack.Sports writer Bill Simmons referred to the 1993 post-season as the best in NBA history. (en)
