NBA champ LeBron James covers the latest issue of Sports Illustrated magazine.
This is James’ 20th time gracing the cover of the magazine.
Riding high off his NBA win, James thought winning his first title would be the hardest thing he’d ever do, but he was wrong. Miami’s repeat took every ounce of energy from the best player alive, according to SI.
“I want to be the greatest of all time,” James declared to a group of reporters at All-Star Weekend in Houston. “As my talent continued to grow, as I continued to know about the game, appreciate the game, continued to get better, I felt like I had the drive, first of all, the passion, the commitment to the game to place myself as the greatest of all time, the best of all time, however you want to categorize it. I don’t do it to say I’m better than this guy or that guy. I do it for my own inspiration. I inspire myself. When I go out on the floor, I want to be the best of all time. That’s how I help myself each and every night.”
