Illustration for article titled Slam Cover Goes Retro, With Rubio and Love As Marbury And Garnett

Slam's Farmer Jones has a lovely story on what it took for Kevin Love to earn this honor—a year-old promise that if he could average 20 and 15, the cover was his. Love somehow did it, but these days you can't do a T-Wolf without including Ricky Rubio. So the two recreated a famous 1997 cover, featuring Minnesota's then-dynamic duo. Even the cover lines look the same—though in an upset, Tracy McGrady only appears in the 2012 version.
