LeBron James appears on the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated with his Miami Heat tied 2-2 with the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference finals. The regular-season MVP has displayed a stunning array of skills against the resolute Pacers, and the cover story explores how James does it all, position by position, with pieces from SI‘s Lee Jenkins, Chris Ballard and Ian Thomsen and commentary from Warriors coach and former All-Star point guard Mark Jackson and Hall of Fame center Bill Walton.
