The new Sports Illustrated, featuring Kevin Durant in a great article by Lee Jenkins, also features an equally stirring cover image. Jenkins, and the cover image, take note of the soon to be iconic quote from Durant, "I've been second my whole life. I was the second-best player in high school. I was the second pick in the draft. I've been second in the MVP voting three times. I cam in second in the finals. I'm tired of being second...I'm done with it." To be fair, he did win a gold medal in the Olympics this summer, but I see his point. But what if KD's SI cover came in second? Let's take a look at what else could have made the latest cover of Sports Illustrated.
Alternate #1: A more upbeat KD.
Alternate #2: A hard hitting, gritty look into the life of Joey Crawford that pulls no punches.
Alternate #3: Serge Ibaka, Westbrook, Falcor, and dominance.
Alternate #4: CHECK BABY CHECK BABY ONE TWO THREE FOUR
