Seattle Crew Scores LeBron James Interview in Toronto for Sports Illustrated

 

LeBron James Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year LeBron James was named Sports Illustrated’s 2016 Sportsperson of the Year and we got to go behind the scenes of his cover photo shoot!

#KingJames was named Sportsman of the Year, but his legacy goes way beyond just being an NBA player for the Cleveland Cavaliers. He is also a philanthropist, businessman and role model to many. It was so much fun working with him. Among his long list of other awards are: three NBA Championships, four MVP Awards, two Olympic gold medals and more!

Sports Illustrated flew our Seattle cameraman to Toronto to meet up with LeBron James and the photographer. Time was limited so we worked quickly and efficiently. But our cameraman did have time after the shoot to try poutine for the first time while in Canada (it’s Canada’s national dish!) Thank you SI for sending us to cool places!
