Very tough. I would probably put the Suns at 1, Sonics at 2, Jazz at 3, and Rockets at 4.

Actually 2, 3, and 4 is almost a toss up to me. Suns were probably the best team of those that I saw play.

And the Rockets would still end up winning.

95 Suns (59 games won) "were better" than the Rockets, as were the 95 Jazz (60 wins), 95 Spurs (62 wins) and 95 Magic (57.)

These 95 Rockets won 47 games, compared to the 62 by the 93 Suns, and 64 each by the Jazz and Sonics.

The Rockets were great no doubt, but they are the only team here that didn't have to go against Jordan. All the other teams shred through the Western Conference too then ran into the Bulls and were stopped short.

Barkley was injured and they couldn't close Houston out, despite a pair of 20+ rebound efforts and a 34/14 Game 6.

93 Suns only have 1 of the three best players when matched against any of those: Keem/Drex, Glove/Kemp, Malone/Stockton.... Barkley and... Kevin Johnson?

Barkley had to go ape shit for the Suns to make it out of those some rounds. 36/12 (20 in the fourth) in pivotal Game 5 vs SA followed by 28/21 w/ game winner in 6... WCF GM5: 43/15/10/71%. GM7: 44/24/1/60%

Kevin Johnson was amazing during that period. Suns also have the best third option of those teams in Dan Majerle. Also MVP Barkley was in my opinion just as good if not better than Olajuwon. Only difference is Dream didn't have to play Jordan, so he got his ring.

They should've closed Houston out in game 5 if Barkley didn't pull a Nick Anderson at the line.

Not even close.

Hakeem was a more dominant 2 way player regardless of who faced Jordan or not. Jordan also said his Bulls "feared" Hakeem's Rockets. So make of that what you will....

Hell, nobody remembers the refs gifting the Suns game 5 against the Lakers on a horrible call.

The Sonics should've gone to the finals in 1993.

No.

They did worse after they traded for Drexler. Check their record before the all star break and after.

They just pulled a insane run out of their ass. I'll never know how the hell they did it. That team wasn't any good and they'll lose to most championship teams but that was ****ing insane run.

I wish the Heat had even a tenth of the composure and clutch play that team did.
