An attorney for former UCLA basketball player Reeves Nelson filed a suit against Sports Illustrated. The suit alleges defamation, false light and intentional infliction of emotional distress stemming from a story on the Bruins' basketball program while Nelson was a member of the team. Nelson was painted as a bully to his teammates in the story. He was dismissed from the team in December. “A story like this is so sensationalized, it is almost impossible to get reputation back,” said Keith Fink, attorney for Nelson.

If his new book “Showtime” accomplishes anything, Jeff Pearlman said, he hopes that it will give Jack McKinney proper credit for his contribution to basketball. McKinney had devised the high-tempo offense that had 6-foot-9-inch Magic Johnson as its flashy playmaker. But 19 games into his tenure as coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, McKinney suffered severe head injuries after toppling over the front of his bicycle while taking a spin on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. He remained away from the team, recovering while the Lakers captured the championship that season.

Sports Illustrated has gone swimsuit optional. For the first time, Sports Illustrated this week published a notice offering subscribers the option of not being sent the magazine's annual swimsuit issue. The notice appeared in a box on SI's letters-to-the-editor page in its March 24 issue. Most of the letters concerned the magazine's swimsuit issue, including one that denounced it as "pornography."

Barbie isn't sorry anymore. She's taken to the pages of Sports Illustrated's swimsuit edition to come out with a message for all the haters, in all of her plastic, unrealistically sculpted glory. With her hair and diminutive shoulders pulled back, she appears in a black-and-white one-piece declaring, "This is #unapologetic," in Mattel's latest effort to bring Barbie back into the cultural conversation -- on its terms. "She very much has a place in societal conversation as well -- we're always talking to multiple audiences," said Mattel spokeswoman Michelle Chidoni . Clearly, the campaign and the SI spread featuring 22 dolls aren't aimed at our children of doll-playing age. "This program is about underscoring who you are, being unapologetic about who you are and celebrating that alongside all these great women and legends who are more than just pretty faces," Chidoni said.

Former model Babette loves living "off the grid," as she puts it on her website. But that doesn't mean, ever, letting herself go. On the subject, she says: Philosophy: "It's important to keep up appearances, even when no one is looking. " Exercise: "A body in motions stays in motion. " Her friend Kathryn Moore attests that Babette routinely walks five miles a day. Skin: She likes a sun-kissed look but tans easily, so doesn't overdo it. Beauty products: "What I can find in the drugstore, nothing expensive, whatever works.

Peyton Manning surely is discovering the perks of being named Sports Illustrated's sportsman of the year. Not the least of which seems to be getting your own tribute song and video performed by none other than Bootsy Collins. No joke! Sports Illustrated For Kids has released a music video of Bootzilla singing a funky (of course) homage to the Denver Broncos quarterback set to the tune of "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town. " Titled "Peyton Manning's Passing Your Way," Collins dedicates the jam to NFL defensive backs.

Add one more to his list of achievements: Peyton Manning has been named Sports Illustrated's sportsman of the year . What an odd choice. Sure, Manning has led Denver to an 11-3 record this year and is closing in on the season record for touchdown passes, but his stirring comeback from neck surgery happened last year. He certainly is Denver's sportsman of the year, but for the U.S.? There were at least two better choices out there: David Ortiz, who led the Boston Red Sox to the World Series title and gave the city something to rally around after the Boston Marathon bombings, and Mariano Rivera, who retired after 17 seasons as the New York Yankees closer.

This year, in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, the editors of the magazine reveal more than models. They reveal a hypocrisy that outraged Canadians, prompted an athletic wear company to boycott their magazine and spawned charges of censorship, double-standards and misogyny.

But for the December issue of Golf Digest , she got to wear links-appropriate attire while golfing great Arnold Palmer taught her to swing a club. In this behind-the-scenes video, it's clear that Upton is more comfortable posing for the camera while Palmer is more at ease lining up a shot. But they both seem to be having fun.
