Spurs vs. Grizzlies: Potentially NBA’s BIGGEST Upset Ever???
In ‘94, the #1 Seed Sonics (63-19) would go on to lose to the #8 seed Denver Nuggets (42-40). The Sonics were EXPECTED to win the title that year. That’s pretty crazy. I’d still say if Spurs lose, it’d be the BIGGEST upset ever b/c Spurs have won 4 championships w/ this current team while the Mavs & that Sonics team NEVER won. Plus, besides the Lakers, they were the other favorite to make it out of the West to legitimately win the Ring this year. Also, the #8 Knicks that beat the #1 Heat in ‘99 can’t really be taken into consideration, in my pov, b/c it was a lockout shortened season. So, the Knicks took a little longer to mesh as a team. If they’d had 82 games, they most likely wouldn’t have been a #8 seed.
Here’s a little more history on #1’s losing to #8s.
