On the Cover
A decade ago, FaZe Clan had humble beginnings as an informal collective of gamers trading Call of Duty highlight clips on YouTube (News - Alert). Today FaZe members have rock star followings, and athletes have noticed: some of the biggest names in analog sports have joined forces with the esports conglomerate. Sports Illustrated's first esports-themed cover features Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler "FaZe K1" Murray, teenaged basketball star LeBron "FaZe Bronny" James Jr., FaZe Temperrr, FaZe Swagg and FaZe Rug. In celebration of Sports Illustrated converging with gaming culture for this iconic cover story, fanscan purchase a special limited-edition version of the magazine (some of which are autographed by FaZe talent) only on the NTWRK app on June 12 at 11:00 am PT.
