Summary

Summary

This lavishly produced book, filled with over 150 spectacular photographs and featuring art-quality printing, is the National Basketball Association's official tribute to one of the most electrifying series of postseason playoff games in recent memory.  On June 25, 1999, the San Antonio Spurs brought home the first championship of their 26-year history, clinching it in Game 5 with a 78-77 victory over the eighth-seeded New York Knicks in a nail-biter at Madison Square Garden.  Victory was sweet, and it was a fitting end to a magnificent season in which the Spurs, led by "Twin Towers" Tim Duncan and David Robinson, went 46-7 over the last four months, including a dazzling 12-game postseason winning streak that is unparalleled in NBA history. With The Official 1999 NBA Finals Retrospective, hoops fans can relive it all--from the Spurs' shaky start in the regular season, to their First Round match-up against the Timberwolves, to the clutch jumper by Avery Johnson that put them one point up on the Knicks in Game 5 and the magnificent last-minute defense against Latrell Sprewell that kept them there.   The Official 1999 NBA Finals Retrospective, created by those who produced Rare Air, The NBA at 50, and For the Love of the Game, is a commemorative volume to own and treasure, for anyone who loves the Spurs, the Knicks, and the sport itself.
