SLAM was founded in 1994 as the “in your face basketball magazine,” covering all things hoop-related, from NBA, college ball and high school hoops to old-school stories, kicks, streetball and the fashion of the game. Sixteen years later, SLAM is still the No. 1 dominant media outlet— both in print and online—for all things that matter in the world of basketball. SLAM gets at the game’s biggest stars in a way no other outlet can. From Kobe and LeBron to Wade and Durant, SLAM brings the reader face to face with their favorite players, and slamonline.com brings breaking news and rumors in real time. SLAM was launched as “the basketball bible,” and we are still the only place for the true basketball fan.
