This Day in Sports History: June 25

The history of sports is both vast and rich, thanks to the existence of so many different ones and the longevity associated with them. With so much history to cull through, Athlon Sports wanted to offer the opportunity to look back and see what memorable things happened or milestones were reached on a specific date.


With that in mind, June 25 is the day in which a great NFL career was cut short by tragedy and the San Antonio Spurs drafted a player who led them to a title two years to the day later.
