LeBron James is Coming Soon…

We’ll have more details regarding the contents of the issue shortly, but we couldn’t hold off from presenting you with our annual Championship cover—starring, of course, two-time NBA Finals MVP LeBron James—any longer. Check out the front of SLAM 171, which will be on newsstands in a couple of weeks, above.

    Honestly looks a little like a sport illustrated cover. Which isn’t a bad thing.

  • JML-G

    looks like Bosh aint gettin his Heat jersey cover ever ha

    Pretty sick. Haven’t purchased a SLAM magazine since 08 with Paul Pierce clutching the Finals MVP trophy on the cover. I will most definitely buy this one.

  • OfftheWall87

  • Dev

  • spit hot fiyah

    haha i feel you, i was in the same boat.
    Air Force? when did you decide to do that?

    Months ago fam’o. I have options though. Got accepted to SDSU and do ROTC for 3 years or go straight to Basic Training for 2 months.

  • J-Man357

    Still hurting that Spurs gave that away……. gonna feel this one for years to come. But in retrospect it was a perfect passing of the torch to the new generation

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    wow, that’s what up man. congratulations

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    Thanks man. So depending on which one I choose I’ll be on a hiatus for just a bit haha

  • pposse

    shoulda been Ray Ray on the cover with a title of “Oh Jesus”

  • Evan Boland

    Three out of 4 Lebron covers. Geez..

  • OfftheWall87

    Yeah, this has gotten beyond ridiculous.

  • pposse

    shoulda been ‘Jesus has resurrected….the Heat’

  • LP @ThisisEther

    I have a Slam subscription via Google Magazine and I hate it…..This is where technology has gone too far, i need tangible magazines and cds (music i actually buy)…

  • shockexchange

    Dope. Caption should have said “LeBron Rules”.

  • The Fury

    I cosign this, hope SLAM will do this every other issue.

  • Double Double

    It’s Bron’s World Now. Beat Timmy in the Finals like he said he would do. I wasn’t going for the Heat because I am one of the older guys who cheer on the ones who came after Jordan therefore I am holding on to whatever players are left from the 90s. Tim Duncan, KG, Paul Pierce, Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, and it was Jason Kidd this year but he retired and will probably go on and become a stellar coach.

  • Evan Boland

    Bad choice man. Fighting for the wrong side.

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    Let me guess USMC?

  • Isabel Herron

    just as Hazel answered I am stunned that any body can make $6820 in four weeks on the internet. have you seen this web link w­w­w.K­E­P­2.c­o­m

  • Max

    Thet should’ve gone with this one.

  • The Philosopher


  • nick

    Sick cover! Led a team to a championship #titlesmatter

  • Evan Boland

    He beat the aging Spurs on a flip of coin series that was saved by none other than one of those 90′s players, Ray. Wouldn’t exactly call it Bron’s world.

  • Evan Boland

    I didn’t say the wrong division on the right side, buddy. I said the wrong SIDE.

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    Ahh totally wasn’t paying attention lol

  • The Fury

    WOW!! Really?!?! Tell me how please????

  • kgt

    the hate is strong in this one
    take the summer off evan im sure you are tired of the hate!!

  • Noompsi


  • Sardo Numspa

    Stop saying that Withnail!

  • Sardo Numspa

    Who gives a s**t…
    Get a room…

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    My bad I didn’t know this was bothering you. I sincerely apologize for upsetting you. I didn’t know that a convo between two grown heterosexual secure men should translate to getting a hotel room. I’m sorry for the inconvenience.

  • http://twitter.com/niQknacks niQ

    Not hating but..another Lebron cover?

  • spit hot fiyah

    Belgian edition maybe


    in person

  • Max

    Would be awesome

  • Redd

    What hate? U mean the justified opinions of how Bron could’ve again lose to a old squad?

    Or that he’s 2/2 in the Finals?

  • Sardo Numspa

    again… who gives a s**t.

  • Sardo Numspa


  • Sardo Numspa

    oi… can’t I say ewwww

  • Sardo Numspa


  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    Obviously you do since you feel the need to keep commenting about it lol

  • thunderupnext

    He has more rings than your favorite player, who will be watching Durant win rings when Bron is done. Hate on that, you wack @ss Bulls fan. Enigmatic is the only Bulls fan on here whose opinion people respect.

  • Mars

    So I guess it really is all about LeBron?! 2014 return home is gonna be crazy. If Cleveland gets a center, fun fact: goodbye Miami and the headband. We about to see some new ish. Winning championships with multiple teams. Yup. Remember where ya heard it first. And I know it’s been done before but not recently

  • Troy Aldrich

    LOVE IT. Lebron haters are just gonna hate.
