In 1992, the Phoenix Suns moved into their new arena in downtown Phoenix, the America West Arena. They traded for All-Star power forward Charles Barkley. Barkley went on to win the MVP award that 1992-93 season. In addition to Barkley, the Suns added key players to their roster, including Danny Ainge, Oliver Miller and Richard Dumas (Drafted in 1991 and suspended for his rookie year for violating the NBA drug policy).
Under rookie head coach Paul Westphal, a former Suns assistant and player with the 1976 Suns in the NBA Finals, the Suns won 62 games in 1992-93 setting a franchise record. They advanced to the NBA Finals for the second time in franchise history. They lost to the Chicago Bulls, led by eventual Hall of Famers Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. Approximately 300,000 fans braved the 105° heat to celebrate the memorable season in the streets of Phoenix.
The Suns continued to be successful in the regular season, going 178–68 during the 1992-93, 1993-94 and 1994-95 seasons. The Suns were eliminated in consecutive Western Conference Semifinal rounds by the Houston Rockets, both series going a full seven games.
Super cool vintage Phoenix Suns jacket! Would make a great gift for that Suns fan!
