SLAM Magazine is an Americanmarker basketball magazine that has been in circulation since 1994, and is published by Source Interlink Media. SLAM publishes nine issues a year to its circulation of over 500,000 readers worldwide.

History

SLAM was launched in 1994 as a basketball magazine that combined the sport with hip hop culture at a time when the genre was becoming increasingly popular. It was founded by publisher Dennis Page at Harris Publications, and he hired Cory Johnson to be the first Editor in Chief. Its first issue had a cover story on Larry Johnson of the Charlotte Hornets (written by future Fortune editor Andrew Serwer) and a feature on University of California freshman Jason Kidd. Many of the magazine's lasting features, such as In Your Face, Slam-a-da-month, and Last Shot all began with that first issue. The magazine carries advertising for basketball related products, street-wear clothing and hip hop music, and has been credited with helping to market hip hop culture and basketball as one.

SLAM has published 130 issues in its history, and has featured the biggest names in basketball on its cover, in articles, and on its famous SLAMups posters. To date, only one female athlete has ever appeared on the kalam cover - Chamique Holdsclaw in October 1998. Allen Iverson has appeared on the cover a record twelve times, his latest appearance being issue 125 of him wearing his Detroit Pistons uniform.
