The Seattle Supersonics started playing in 1968 and are the only one of Seattle's professional sports teams - the others being MLB's Mariners and the NFL's Seahawks - to have won a championship. However, as an expansion team the first years of the Sonics' existence were difficult.

Despite their early struggles the Sonics weren't completely lacking in talent. Among the players they had during their early years were Tom Meschery, Lenny Wilkens, Bob Rule and Dick Snyder.

In 1975 the Supersonics, under the guidance of coach Bill Russell, made their first trip to the playoffs. Led by Spencer Haywood, Archie Clark and Fred Brown, the Supersonics won their first series by defeating the Detroit Pistons of Bob Lanier and Dave Bing 2 games to 1. Seattle lost in the next round to the eventual champions, the Golden State Warriors of Rick Barry and Jamaal Wilkes.

By 1978, the Sonics had the players in place that would take the team to its first trip to the NBA Finals. Gus Williams, Fred Brown, Marvin Webster, Dennis Johnson and Jack Sikma were the core of a team that lost in 7 games to the Washington Bullets of Elvin Hayes, Bob Dandridge and Wes Unseld.

The next year the Lenny Wilkens coached Supersonics won a rematch with the Bullets. Seattle exacted revenge with a 4 games to 1 Finals victory over Washington.

The following year the Sonics made a third straight trip to the Western Conference Finals, losing to the Los Angeles Lakers in 5 games.

Seattle made another trip to the Western Conference Finals in 1987 on the shoulders of solid play from Tom Chambers, Xavier McDaniel and Dale Ellis. Although they each averaged over 23 points per game during the regular season, they were swept by the Los Angeles Lakers in the Conference Finals.

After finishing the 1993 regular season with a 55-27 record, Seattle slogged through the playoffs, first defeating Karl Malone's Utah Jazz 3 games to 2. They then won a 7 games series against Hakeem Olajuwon's Houston Rockets. Finally, they met and lost to the Phoenix Suns of league MVP Charles Barkley in 7 games.

In 1996, the Supersonics finished with a franchise best 64-18 record during the regular season. After defeating the Sacramento Kings in 4 games and sweeping the Houston Rockets, the Sonics battled Karl Malone and the Utah Jazz before winning the Western Conference Finals in 7 games. Seattle then moved on to face Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls, a team that had just set the NBA mark for best regular season record at 72-10. After losing the first two games, the Sonics battled back to win games 3 and 4. The Bulls then won games 5 and 6 for their fourth championship.
