Whoo. I damn near reacted like the first row when I saw this from my home. This ferocious, fluid dunk is made better by Mitch Kupchak’s bleek outlook on life. Ha! Must be weird to be a basketball fan in L.A. nowadays…
Yesterday, ESPN Magazine revealed its annual Music Issue cover stars and this year, there are three covers and 6 huge stars to grace it: Kobe & Nicki Minaj, Calvin Johnson & Eminem, and CP3 & Kendrick Lamar.
Today, ESPN releases all-new behind the scenes photos of all of the above, plus Skylar Grey & Hope Solo (who actually look like they can be sisters). Scroll through the gallery of 20 photos (all via ESPN with backstory captions) to view some real nice candids, with a couple of notable favorites: Kobe playing ping pong and the Calvin Johnson & Eminem overhead photo at the famous Shelter in Detroit.
The annual ESPN Music issue is on its way and it features three really dope covers merging a superstar athlete and rapper. You got Kobe & Nicki Minaj above, D-Town representin’ with Calvin Johnson & Eminem, and CP3 and Kendrick Lamar. Last year’s music issue with LeBron & Dre was a good one, and I’m looking forward to all these cover stories (and much of the names on the cover too) so I’ll be picking this up when I see it on newsstands this week.
