SLAM Magazine - Issue 208 - Isaiah Thomas
Slam Magazine, issue 208, features the man of the moment, Isaiah Thomas, on the cover. The magazine came out before tragedy struck the Thomas family at the start of the playoffs, with the death of Isaiah's sister, and before Isaiah fought through that to (at the time of writing this) have his team beating the Wizards in the second round.
That being said, Thomas was already an inspirational figure to a lot of fans of the game; he was a little guy in a big league, and he was getting the job done. In the SLAM interview, Thomas talks about shutting up the haters and showing people that you don't need to be tall to ball.
As well as a great read about Thomas, SLAM also covers other figures expected to make an impact (one way or another) in these playoffs, including Chris Paul, Gordon Hayward and Eric Gordon. There's a decent article on JaVale McGee, and how playing at the Warriors is showing another side of him.
You'll also find content with Russell Westbrook, Steph Curry and DeMar DeRozen in this issue of SLAM, and all of the other regular features that make SLAM Magazine the one.
