The 1994–95 Seattle SuperSonics season was the 27th season of the Seattle SuperSonics in the National Basketball Association (NBA).[1] After a shocking first round exit in the 1994 NBA Playoffs against the Denver Nuggets the Seattle franchise would once again exit early in the 1995 Playoffs, losing in four games to the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round. For the duration of the season, the Sonics switched venues and played their home games at the Tacoma Dome while their original stadium, the Seattle Center Coliseum, was being rebuilt to keep pace with NBA standards.
