The 1992–93 Phoenix Suns season was the 25th season of the Phoenix Suns in the National Basketball Association (NBA). With an NBA-best 62–20 finish, the team set the franchise record for most wins in a season (the record was later tied in the 2004–05 season). Newly acquired forward and regular season MVP Charles Barkley led the team to its second trip to the NBA Finals, where they lost to the Chicago Bulls in six games.
The season saw the debut of the new "Streaking Sun" logo, which was featured on the team's new jerseys. The season was also the Suns first at the new America West Arena (later renamed US Airways Center). The new arena had a regular season attendance of 779,943 in 41 home games, the fifth highest total attendance in the league. The team sold-out the capacity 19,023 arena every game of the season.
Famous quotes containing the words phoenix, suns and/or season:
“A victorious tomcat is like a tiger; a plucked phoenix is not worth a chicken.”
“I lived for a long time under vast porticos
That maritime suns tinted with a thousand fires,
And whose great pillars, straight and majestuous
In the evening made seem like basaltic caves.”
—Charles Baudelaire (18211867)
“Let us have a good many maples and hickories and scarlet oaks, then, I say. Blaze away! Shall that dirty roll of bunting in the gun-house be all the colors a village can display? A village is not complete, unless it have these trees to mark the season in it. They are important, like the town clock. A village that has them not will not be found to work well. It has a screw loose, an essential part is wanting.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
