Get in the Game With an ESPN The Magazine Subscription for Just $5

ESPN The Magazine LeBron James Cover LeBron IssueExperience the wide world of sports with some of the most notable insiders in the business! An ESPN The Magazine subscription is just $5 for 10 issues!

It’s that glorious time of year in the sports world when fans of nearly every game can cheer on their favorite teams. While college and professional football seem to monopolize the headlines, Major League Baseball’s season is headed down to the wire. Hockey is underway, and it won’t be too long before college and NBA basketball teams hit the court.

So you don’t miss a minute of the action, we’re offering a home run of a deal on ESPN The Magazine—10 issues for just $5! Now through Oct. 31 for less than 50 cents per issue, you’ll get the latest news and analysis on all the big games and storylines with the printed companion to your favorite sports network.

Celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, ESPN The Magazine is a go-to source for previews and predictions on all the major sports, plus lots of special issues throughout the year, such as The Perfect Issue, The Photo Issue, The Money Issue, The Body Issue, and, most recently, The LeBron Issue.

Speaking of LeBron, the magazine’s covers often feature the most popular—or maybe most polarizing—athletes in sports. Aside from King James, Johnny Manziel and Cam Newton have been cover subjects in recent months.

Each issue opens up with several columns that appear in each issue: “The Truth” tackles some buzzworthy topic in the sporting world (think paying college athletes); “The Numbers” goes in-depth into statistical analysis (think “Moneyball”), and “The Fix,” which appears at the back of the magazine, brings little-known sports stories to light.

ESPN The Magazine’s “Playbook” section is a collection of news and quick hits across multiple sports. In The LeBron Issue, it led with a longer piece about an obscure NFL rule that allows players to remain with their teams, even during a suspension. Shorter articles covered everything from college football and NHL to soccer.

More than half of The LeBron Issue was dedicated to the controversial basketball star and an NBA season preview. The cover proclaims he’s “the only player worth of an entire NBA preview issue,” and on the inside, the magazine justified its choice again, writing “right now, LeBron is the NBA.”

The lengthy devotion to LeBron includes articles touting his undeniable athletic ability to the more personal insights offered in what’s called “The Lost Stories of LeBron James.”

Basically, there’s a lot to say about LeBron before the magazine gets to its NBA preview, but in light of LeBron’s multiple MVPs, plus his quest of a three-peat this year, you can’t talk about the NBA—or at least discuss championship odds—without talking about the phenomenon that will likely be the biggest roadblock in getting there for many teams.

Fan or not of LeBron, Cam Newton, Johnny Manziel, RG3, the Honey Badger, and so many more, ESPN The Magazine manages to make the biggest characters in sports an entertaining read in every issue. Going beyond the daily news, the magazine delivers the insightful analysis ESPN’s become so popular for on its cable network.

At just $5 for 10 issues, this magazine subscription deal would make a great gift for the sports fan in your life—or for yourself!
