No team has ever pulled off this feat in the NBA finals
Nope, the closest team to do it were the '01 Lakers who lost Game 1 in the finals to Iverson and the 76ers
In the 2002 NBA Finals, the Nets were swept by Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers.
The team that lost the NBA finals do not get a second place ring.

The San Antonio Spurs won the 2007 NBA Finals. They swept LeBron's Cavaliers 4 - 0. Tim Duncan won the Finals MVP Award.
The NBA team that was first to be swept out was the San Antonio spurs and yet they were the 2007 NBA Champions.
I really don't know, but I do know that they have won 17 NBA finals. Their last win was in 2008, and hopefully in 2011 they will have their 18th.
No, they have not. they made it to the NBA Finals in 2007, but were swept by the San Antonio Spurs
