For LeBron James, “This thing is about more than just basketball,” says the reigning NBA MVP. In Lebronopolis, Jeanne Marie Laskas steps away from the court with King James, as he details of billionaire aspirations, why he chooses to not average thirty-five points a game, and his unwavering commitment to his hometown of Akron, Ohio. But as for covering the magazine for the third time, “He loves this shit — fashion is his candy,” declares Laskas.
Taking a page from SCO, the issue also pays homage to the NBA as a whole — dubbing it The League of Extraordinarily Well-Dressed Gentlemen — in a spread that features a variety of All-Stars. Steph Curry, James Harden, and Paul George to name a few.
Gettin’ Iggy with It features Iggy Azalea and her Los Angeles Lakers beau — guard Nick Young. The NBA swingman is known for his Versace obsession, and because of that the spread features Young and his rapper girlfriend swathed in the House of Versace’s trendiest spring threads.
A personal SCO favorite — House of Cards, the most thrilling show [not] on television — is highlighted, as a web illustration depicts the master manipulation of Frank Underwood; and bombshell Kate Mara is featured in Citizen Kate.
The issue is available on newsstands.
