OK, according to the list of previous NBA champions on NBA.com, after the 1974-1975 season, the Golden State Warriors met the Washington Bullets in
the Finals. Both teams had previously been to the Finals, but at the time were located in different cities (San Francisco and Philadelphia for the
Warriors, and Baltimore for the Bullets). So that kinda counts.
Prior to that, there was the 1950-1951 season, in which the Rochester Royals beat the New York Knicks. Also, after the 1948-49 season, the Minneapolis
Lakers beat the Washinton Capitols. And of course the first season in NBA history, 1946-1947, when the Philadelphia Warriors beat the Chicago
So, there you have it, only 3 times in the past have both teams in the Finals been there for the first time ever.
