Which playoff run would you rather re-experience... 92-93 or 05-06?


Seems like an easy choice at first since we made it to the finals in 92-93 and came back against the Lakers. There was Barkley and KJ and Thunder Dan. That team had leaders and effort and grit and skill and a round mound of rebound that would pluck jump shots out of the air and go coast to coast. We had a little PG who liked to make dunk-meat sandwiches out of hall-of-fame centers with names like The Dream.

But every series in 05-06 was about as magical as any singular series can ever be. Coming back against the Lakers--but this time against Kobe--who tried harder than any team I've ever seen to beat us by simply punking and bullying us. It worked for three games in a row but then the Suns remembered who they were. There was Boris' hook shot and Tim Thomas's game-saver and Raja's ridiculous 3 over the Clips rookie Ewing. And if Raja didn't get hurt we could have made it to the finals that year. And the whole time the world picked us to fail every series (like every other time).

In the end it's still a hard choice, but MJ is maybe the greatest athlete-celebrity of all time, and you can't beat that circus. Combine that with the presence Sir Charles, my personal fat favorite, and I choose 92-93.
