The 1993–94 Seattle SuperSonics season was the 26th season of the Playoffs as the number one seed in the Western Conference for the first time since the 1978–79 season, where the SuperSonics won their first NBA Championship. However, the Sonics didn't make it past the first round, losing to the Denver Nuggets in five games after taking a 2–0 lead in the series. It was the first time in NBA Playoffs history that a number 8 seed defeated a number 1 seeded team.
