NEW YORK, NY USA .-- (BUSINESS WIRE)

In the Sportsperson of the Year Issue, on sale tomorrow, Sports Illustrated celebrates the year’s best athletes, moments, photos, media and plays. Sportsperson of the Year Tom Brady tells senior writer Jon Wertheim how he’s forged his career longevity and what has changed since he last won the Sportsperson of the Year award in 2005. Muhammad Ali Legacy Award winner Billie Jean King, whose sportsmanship has also spanned decades, is profiled in the issue, along with Athletes of the Year Suni Lee and Caeleb Dressel and Breakthrough Athlete of the Year LaMelo Ball.

On The Cover

According to Jon Wertheim, time is a construct for Tom Brady, measurable in ways other than revolutions around the sun. In his 22nd NFL season, he started his 10th Super Bowl and collected his seventh ring while also being named Super Bowl MVP for the fifth time. At age 44, he leads the league in touchdown passes. We know how statistically outlying his longevity is, but there is much more to the story of this timeless Sportsperson of the Year, only the third athlete to be honored by SI more than once.
