As a bonus gift, we’re bringing you an episode of the upcoming podcast Running It Back. Tarlin Ray and Mike Palmer look to moments in sports history to give insights for our lives today. In this episode, Mike and Tarlin run it back to the 1999 NBA season and the historic run for the 8th-seeded New York Knicks all the way to the NBA Finals. They ultimately lost to the San Antonio Spurs in the Finals, marking the beginning of the Tim Duncan and Gregg Popovich dynasty.
As we head into the 2020 NBA Playoffs in the Bubble in Orlando, what lessons can be learned by running it back to 1999?
