1979 NBA Finals: Seattle SuperSonicsWashington Bullets

After Wes Unseld led the Washington Bullets to a seven-game series win over the Seattle SuperSonics in the 1978 NBA finals, a then 25-year-old Dennis Johnson led the Sonics to a resounding 4-1 series win over the Bullets the following season. Hall of Famer Lenny Wilkens was coach of that Sonics team, as Seattle proved to the Bullets that revenge is best served cold. A five-game NBA finals type of cold.
