SLAM 119: On Sale Now!

Hey it’s the Celtics! After two games, they’ve forced LeBron into 8 for 42 shooting with 17 turnovers. That’s good defense. Wouldn’t you like to read about how that defense came to be and how the players became so committed to it and each other? Of course you would!

    I always wondered what would happen if you put 3 consistent losers on a team together. i guess a negative + a negative + a negative = a positive!! Time to call a few of my ex girlfriends.

  • Ken

  • David

    I’m in Oz and I got my Howard ish a while ago. I saw it on the stand in Borders yesterday, too.

  • Harlem_World

    Watching the Celtics this season, is it just me or has Ray Allen fallen off considerably since last season? Sharing the ball, number of shots, play your role etc etc – yes, I know all that. But I’m sayin…he doesn’t seem like Ray Ray anymore.

  • Silent Storm

    yeah borders gets it in (on time) for $13.95…then you wait for 35 days and its everywhere else…by then though borders have the most recent issue available…. its just as bad if you have a subscription.

  • T.J

    who is on the poster for this issue


    I’ve never been a Celtic fan, but I’m not going to blast them like some of you ppl are doing. STOP THE HATIN!!! They have had a great season and yes they had a tough round with the Hawks, but come on, you have to give them credit. Ray Ray, KG, and The Truth, keep doing the damn thang…

  • Cavs Fan

    Nobody can hold Lebron the WHOLE Series!!!! Get serious wit ya self. He single handedly plowed his way to the finals last year. enough said!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Kevin

    It is May 17th and this issue is still not out at Barnes and Noble or at Boirder’s. What is the deal?

  • http://www.slam.com SDB knicks

    when am I going to get this! This is ridiculus get Kobe gasol and odom on dis cova

  • SAMmagazine

    hey i love that ur givin cp3 alot of love.
    but still not a cover, except for waaay back in 102.
    the celts have had a disappointing postseason as far as i see it.
    they have narrowly escaped 2 game 7′s, and unlike the regular season, havent won on the road.

    i wanna see a WEST, CHANDLER, and PAUL cover.
    west is so underrated and under-appreciated in the nba, so give him some love.
    tho garnett deserves a ring and some coverage (like ish 113)- the hornets are on the rise and have had a stellar season (and still not a cover this past season)
    oh and if i see another lebron or kobe cover im gonna snap.

  • SAMmagazine

    oh and yeah- the hawks are a good look too. good job given josh smith some love.

  • Cory Guinn

    Hey SLAM!!!
    I just got finished reading ish 119 and I loved it!! The Big Three cover was dope and the article was fresh. The Celts are my favorite team in the league and they always have been and will always be. When KG got traded there I flipped out. My second favorite player ever( Lary Legend is number one, nice article on him too by the way) is playing on my favorite team ever. I could not believe it. Any way, just wanted to say thanks for giving the Boston some love and keep on molding basketball minds forever. I am out like Isaiah. Peace!

  • Corey B from the RIC

    Why no KB24 cover for this Issue.he did win the MVP last time I checked.Nothing against the Celtics(I hate them as and LA fan,but i respect them because true basketball fans can appreciate),but that cover of them should have come earlier in the season.

  • Milad

    I was reading the drexler interview and at the final page with the pic of him and MJ it just stops mid sentence, and the pages after that are just kicks. Did anbody else notice this or was it just in my copy of the mag?

  • http://slamonline.com Karrim Omer

    U need T-Mac on a cover

  • MVP

    SLAM please!!! but kobe on the next cover
    he deserves it, his the MVP

  • Hayder Yagot

    hmmm according to my math…issue 120 will be your 10 year aniversare issue, PLEASE DO SOMETHING BIG AND SPECIAL

  • http://Bleacherreport.com Mike Whittenberg

    Great issue, I liked the articles on Kevin Durant and David Stern.

    I’m a SLAM junkie, I have them all as soon as they hit the stores.

  • Destro

    Where is the rest of the Drexler interview?

  • http://www.msn.com Brent Schuck

    I dont know where to write an entry for trashtalk, but i feel a little respect is due. .. i opened my SlaM mag this month and saw a new name under the ‘senior writers’. Shout to my dude Jake Appleman for FINALLY grabbing the spot he deserves. I had a couple talks with this guy when he covered a tournament i played in…or watched, rather. I havent learned that much n laughed that hard since the last time i got benched. but seriously, i feel the respect is due, so ‘what up’ to Jake n keep writin dude.

  • Danny M.

    Well, this issue got screwed up royally. I BOUGHT it for the Clyde Drexler article, only to see that said article was cut short for 8 consecutive pages of EastBay ads. Great work, Slam!

  • Alfredo

    You guys dissed my man Drexler
