In addition, the background of the box adds a replica of the Slam cover to complete the look.

Here’s the lineup for this release:

  • Funko Pop!: NBA Cover: Slam – Allen Iverson Funko Pop! Vinyl Figure

Funko Pop! NBA Cover Slam - Allen Iverson Funko Pop! Vinyl Figure

Founded by Dennis Page, Slam Magazine was born as a basketball magazine that combined the sport with hip hop culture when the genre was becoming increasingly popular. Hardly any brand has managed to portray the connection of these two universes as organically as SLAM has.

Throughout its 26 years, Slam Magazine has become a highly respected platform, mainly for its agility in connecting with all levels of basketball and for offering its readers exclusive, quality content. The magazine has featured numerous players on its cover and has eternalized great moments in the sport’s history.

Iconic covers still live on in the memory of basketball lovers, like the first issue that featured Larry Johnson at the peak of his career with the Charlotte Hornets.

So does Allen Iverson and his black power in the Sixers’ retro uniform. Lamar Odom, Elton Brand, and Darius Miles exchanging their Los Angeles Clippers jerseys, Lou Will and Pat Bev years later repeated the feat, among many other stories.

When a magazine recognizes a potential young talent by his results, it tends to cover him long into his professional phase. A classic example is LeBron James, who was already a standout at the age of 16, has been followed from then until today as the star of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Even if the magazines have become something less frequent, being on the cover of SLAM is vital for any basketball player. It is like a stamped certificate acknowledging that he has really made it and has become a professional NBA player.
