June 25, 1999: Hakeem Olajuwon, John Stockton and Karl Malone, Charles Barkley, and the Shawn Kemp/Gary Payton combo helped delay David Robinson's shot at an NBA title. Then, in 1999, the NBA lockout pushed it back even more. But finally, on this day 13 years ago, Robinson -- alongside fellow tower (and NBA Finals MVP Tim Duncan) -- finally won his championship with a victory over the New York Knicks.
