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

Monday June 13, 2022

Primeís Time: Two years ago, Deion Sanders uprooted his Hall of Fame life to revive the moribund Jackson State program. Last year the Tigers dominated, Coach Sanders landed the schoolís first five-star recruit Ė and now heís thinking about more than just a Jackson State renaissance. According to Jean-Jacques Taylor, Coach Prime wants to usher in a new era for all HBCUs and future generations of athletes.

Chet Engine: Chet Holmgren is seven feet tall, weighs less than 200 pounds and played all of one year at Gonzaga. But heíll be one of the top picks in this yearís NBA draft, and senior writer Greg Bishop believes whoever lands the ball-handling, jumper-draining, shot-blocking force may just be drafting the future of basketball.

Funnyball: Everyone knows that Shohei Ohtani is the most talented baseball player on the planet. As he grows more comfortable in the major leagues, another strength is beginning to shine through: his sense of humor, by Stephanie Apstein.

The Kids Are Alright: Killebrew. Hodges. Martin. Drysdale. Theyíre some of the biggest names of baseballís 20th century golden age, and decades later, their children have a unique bond as offspring of MLB royalty. These days, the boys and girls of the Boys of Summer gather, in-person and online, to share their stories of growing up in baseball, as reported by Steve Rushin.

Slater Boi: Kelly Slater just turned 50, but the surfing icon has no intention of slowing down. And why should he: in February, he beat an opponent half his age to win a record 8th Pipeline title. Brandon Sneed describes Slaterís plan: consult with other aging GOATs, wrestle his demons and keep stoking his competitive fire until he doesnít.

PickleMania: Itís easy to see why pickleball is Americaís fastest-growing sport: itís addictive and easy to play, whether youíre a converted high-level tennis player or a creaky retiree. Big money has followed that growth in popularity, as have fierce debates over how the sport should be governed. John Walters takes us inside the war for the soul of pickleball.

Also in this issue: For its 150th installment next month, the Open Championship returns to golfís symbolic home: St. Andrews. Sports Illustrated dips into its photo archive for classic shots of Palmer, Nicklaus, Tiger and more playing the British at the Old Course.

Howard Beck on the NBAís profanity problem. First question: why does the league think itís a problem? SI Gameplan: Mark Bechtel reviews two new memoirs: Ron Shelton on the making of Bull Durham and Grant Hill on his career highs and lows. Balance of Power: ranking the tightest and most lopsided rivalries in sports. SI Full Frame:

A sweet shot of Hall of Famer (and Jackson State star) Walter Payton.

Point After

Sports Illustrated remembers Serena Williamsís first Wimbledon title 20 years ago this month.
