Klay Thompson is living the life. He shot his way back to the All-Star Game, Playoffs, and now the Conference Finals. Thompson wasn’t the only shooting guard to make waves this season. Donovan Mitchell went from unheralded to rising star in just a matter of a couple of months. He led the Jazz to the Playoffs and broke several record along the way. Up north, an DeMar DeRozan led his pack of Raptors to their best season in franchise history. He vaulted himself to MVP status by leading Toronto to the top of the East.
All three made their mark this season. Klay and his ever so cool game. DeMar DeRozan as the alpha of the Toronto. Mitchell’s rise to superstardom. Read about their seasons in SLAM #215.
Also in this issue, the San Miguel Beermen’s refusal to let go of the Philippine Cup crown, Ricci Rivero’s next step and the highlights of this year’s SLAM Rising Stars Classic.
SLAM #215 is out tomorrow at Titan Fort! It will be released next week in the Titan Web Store, other Titan branches and major bookstores.
