Relive the Spurs’ 1999 championship run

GO SPURS GO into the Time Machine

Remember when Sean wasn’t making cheesy jokes with Bill Land?

During this time of year, if you’ve told yourself, ‘I have all this time off of work between Christmas and New Years,’ or ‘Geez, there are too many days between games,’ or even ‘I really need to get the bad taste of this loss out of my mouth.’ Well, Pounders, here’s something fun you can do - go to each of the below links for Spurs wins during the 1999 championship run.

NOTE: Some games were/are not available because apparently it’s far easier to upload cat and blooper videos to YouTube than full-length NBA games from two decades ago(!)
