      Most Sonics fans will also point to the George Karl/Bob Kloppenburg Sonics
      teams of the mid-1990s, which would regularly win 60 games or so and then
      exit early from the playoffs, most spectacularly in 1994. Those Sonics teams
      used a trapping, double-teaming defense which kept other teams off-balance.
      But in the playoffs, the results were not nearly as good. Except of
      course in 1996.
