How many times has LeBron James appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated? originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

The Chosen One now includes The Chosen Sons.

NBA superstar LeBron James once got a “Chosen 1” tattoo in 2002 after being featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated, which became one of his numerous nicknames throughout his established career on and off the court.

But as the 37-year-old’s journey on the court winds down, there’s one central topic worth zooming in on: Bronny and Bryce James, his two sons.

James has long stated his desire to one day play in the NBA with Bronny, currently 17, before he retires. But could the 15-year-old Bryce be added to the list? 

That’s the angle of Sports Illustrated’s latest cover that includes LeBron: “The Chosen Sons.” 

Only time will tell if LeBron will be able to take the floor with at least one of his sons, if not both, but the latest cover appearance begets the question: How many times has LeBron appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated? Let’s take a look:
