  • Las Finales de la NBA de 1979 fueron las series definitivas de los playoffs de 1979 y suponían la conclusión de la temporada 1978-79 de la NBA, con victoria de Seattle SuperSonics, campeón de la Conferencia Oeste, sobre Bullets, campeón de la Conferencia Este, repitiéndose la final del año anterior, pero con diferente campeón. En el partido se alinearon tres futuros miembros del Basketball Hall of Fame, Elvin Hayes y Wes Unseld por los Bullets, y Dennis Johnson por los Sonics, además del entrenador de éstos, Lenny Wilkens.

  • The 1979 NBA World Championship Series was the championship series played at the conclusion of the 1978–79 season. The Western Conference champion Seattle SuperSonics played the Eastern Conference champion Washington Bullets, with the Bullets holding home-court advantage, due to a better regular season record. The SuperSonics defeated the Bullets 4 games to 1. The series was a rematch of the 1978 NBA Finals, which the Washington Bullets had won 4–3. Dennis Johnson of the SuperSonics was named as the NBA Finals MVP, while Gus Williams of the SuperSonics was the top scorer, averaging 28.6 points per game. Besides the Seattle Metropolitans' Stanley Cup victory in 1917, this remained Seattle's only men's professional sports championship until the Seattle Seahawks won Super Bowl XLVIII. Coincidentally, this series (along with the 1978 NBA Finals) was informally known as the George Washington series, because both teams were playing in places named after the first President of the United States (the SuperSonics represented Seattle, the most populous city in the state of Washington, and the Bullets represented Washington, D.C., albeit playing in nearby Landover, Maryland).
