For the music issue, ESPN enlisted various athletes to help recreate the album covers. I love that ESPN does a music issue to tie in athletes to their musical choices. Also, it’s nice to see athletes outside of their uniforms. Whoever the stylists was for the shoot did a fantastic job. The recreates look very accurate to the originals.
