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.Â Â 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.Â Â 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.Â Â
