kbcover_640SLAM Magazine recently dropped what it called a “historic” cover – Issue 198, which featured Drake, DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry on its front.

Now, the respected basketball mag is back with a special edition issue, dedicated to Kobe Bryant, who just wrapped up his legendary 20-year NBA career. SLAM Presents KOBE – sure to be full of rare pics, stories and interviews – is set to hit newsstands across the nation on April 29th.

This isn’t the first time SLAM has dedicated an entire issue to one of the game’s greats (see IVERSON and JORDAN). If you’re a hoops head, you won’t want to miss out on this dope collector’s item.
