These are my most shocking playoff moments in NBA Postseason History.

1. The Bad Boy Pistons getting swept 4-0 in 1991 by the Bulls after winning the title the previous season.

2. The Suns coming back to beat the Lakers in 1993 after losing Game 1 and 2 at home and then won the next 3 games.

3. Lakers losing game 1 to the sixers in 2001 NBA Finals after sweeping through the playoffs in the west.

4. Lakers losing to the Spurs in 2003 after winning the title the 3 previous seasons

5. The warriors losing a 3-1 lead in the 2016 NBA Finals



Do you have any NBA playoff moments that has always stuck with you?

That buzzer beater gave the Lakers a 3-1 lead and then they lost three in a row after that

Speaking of Miller, I remember he had a dunk in a playoff game late in his career in an overtime game against the Nets. Watching it live it was impressive. Never really saw Reggie dunk before, especially late in his career.

1) GS losing a 3-1 lead in the finals. Lets not kid ourselves after that regular season, the GS loss after being up 3-1 is going to go down as one of the ultimate collapses in all of sports for DECADES.

2) "Sure shot Bob" Horry shooting something like 2-30 from behind the arc to allow San Antonio to advance past LA in the wcf 20 years or so ago. Cost both Karl Malone and Gary Payton a ring.... (and I'm a spurs fan)
