The 1972 NBA Playoffs was the postseason tournament of the National Basketball Association's 1971–72 season. The tournament concluded with the Western Conference champion Los Angeles Lakers defeating the Eastern Conference champion New York Knicks, four games to one in the NBA Finals. Wilt Chamberlain was named NBA Finals MVP.

The Lakers finished the regular season with the best record in NBA history at 69-13, a mark that would be unequalled until the 1995–96 Chicago Bulls finished 72-10. Led by Wilt Chamberlain and Jerry West, the Lakers won their first championship in Los Angeles; their previous title had been in 1954 as the Minneapolis Lakers.

The Lakers won their first NBA Finals in the last nine appearances, without superstar Elgin Baylor, who had played in each of the preceding eight finals losses. Baylor retired nine games into the season because of ongoing knee problems.
