20 Years Ago on Feb. 7, 1999 -- Grant Hill and the Start of a Shortened NBA Season

February 7, 1999: The lead promo featured the Detroit Pistons' Grant Hill for the start of the lockout-shortened NBA season. (Gee, I wonder if his being a Duke star player factored at all into the photo selection. Nah.)
[Series note: In the late 1990s, I programmed the content for the home page, which relaunched with a new design on July 14, 1998. I printed screencaps and saved them. 20 years later, I'm scanning them in and posting them with a little commentary under the tag #20YearsAgoOnAOLcom.]
