Meanwhile, the NBA has the Seattle Supersonics. For over three decades, the Supersonics has represented Seattle. While the team s most super season was 1978 1979, the Supersonics are always striving to win yet another NBA Finals.
The 1967 1968 season was the Seattle Supersonics first campaign in the NBA. They would be one of the NBA s pair of new expansion teams. The name Supersonics referred to Seattle s aerospace industry, and particularly to the Supersonic Transport (SST). A supersonic aircraft can travel quicker than the speed of sound. The first season of the Sonics was rough, as they finished with a 23 59 record.

Seattle would defeat the Los Angles Lakers (4 2), and then overcome a 3 2 deficit to nip the Phoenix Suns (4 3). The NBA Finals showcased a rematch between the Supersonics and the Bullets. However, this time the Sonics were faster (and better) than the Bullets, and avenged their defeat one year earlier (4 3).
The Seattle Sonics would return to the NBA Finals, during the 1995 1996 season. Their 64 18 regular season record was the best in the West. In the playoffs, the Sonics would dethrone the Sacramento Kings (3 1), shoot down the Houston Rockets (4 0), and then silence the Utah Jazz in a squeaker (4 3). The Supersonics was a solid team, but Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls overpowered them in the NBA Finals (4 2).
