The cover makes the magazine right? Well not for everyone, but for a guy like me that likes to collect hoops magazines, the cover is like the window to the magazine. It’s a snapshot, or a teaser to the goodness that you will find inside. Personally I love some of the covers that have been flowing lately out of Dime Magazine. They are really picking poses for the ballers that will resonate with the readers. It’s a bit of a different look than the classic ‘Action Shot’ pictures that historically would grace the covers of the granddaddy of sports magazines, “Sports Illustrated”. I bet Jimmy Traina from Extra Mustard has about a million Michael Jordan SI covers at his disposal.
The reason I bring MJ into the mix on this cover thing, is because he is the greatest of all time in this sport. And not just on the court either. In my opinion Michael was also the greatest of all time in the PR department. The guy was a genius and revolutionized the way athletes interact with the media, the public, and Corporate America.
