Our tradition of not unveiling our new covers until they are actually on newsstands is not likely to change much in the future, but the SLAM 160 cover is just too special to keep under wraps.

We’ll explain a little more about how we’ve already shot Anthony in a Hornets jersey in print and on the site when this ish drops for real in about 12 days, but for now just enjoy a dope, timely image of one of the most exciting players to enter the NBA in a long time.
