LeBron James Featured on Sports Illustrated Cover for 20th Time

This week’s Sports Illustrated features LeBron James on the cover for the 20th time. James’ first SI cover came when he was just 17. The magazine dubbed him “The Chosen One,” and he has certainly lived up to that hype.

We should also note that Michael Jordan has appeared on the cover of SI 50 times, so James only has 31 to go to beat him.

[Editor's note: As a handsomely balding man myself, yes I did notice James' hairline and no, I will not be making a joke about it. Bald is beautiful. Because it has to be, dammit.]
