Karl-Anthony Towns is naked (See the photos)

ESPN: The Body Issue

Karl-Anthony Towns went full nude for this year’s edition of ESPN’s The Body Issue. 

The former Wildcat showed off his impressive physique in a photo shoot for the magazine that is in its 10th summer of giving sports fans an extremely close look at the bodies of the world’s best athletes.

ESPN: The Body Issue

Towns said, “I love working out. I love the grind of my job. And I love the grind of the everyday challenge.”

ESPN: The Body Issue

“Since I came out of college, I feel like a physically new being. I changed my weight, my shoulders, my arms, my legs, getting stronger all over. Since making these changes, I think I’ve been able to play at a much faster pace for a longer time.”

ESPN: The Body Issue

“Growing up, I’d always been told that my biggest weakness was my body and how that was probably going to hold me back from accomplishing my dreams. It’s funny — full circle now … I got the chance to prove everyone from college, high school, middle school wrong. I was that chubby kid with not the flashiest body, and now I’m able to represent myself and my family and all the journeys and the trials and tribulations that I went through to get to this body.”

    Absolutely the most inappropriate and unprofessional article to post in a forum such as this. Drew Franklin you are a pawn and tool of society…no one wants to see a man nor a woman on this site. You have lowered the standards of professionalism along with the failing ESPN!

      If you’re joking, this is funny. If you’re serious, you’re an idiot. I’m going to assume the first

    2. CombatMedic_98

      Well glad you know what Assume means…it’s fitting for u

    3. BBNDan7

      Someones uncomfortable with their sexuality. It’s a human body, get over it

    4. CombatMedic_98

      No, it’s Personal & Private to me.

      I mean this is news related to Kentucky sports… and if you didn’t want to see it you didn’t have to click on the article.

      Riggggght…we’ll just try to keep that between you and your friends!!!

      The Body issue is one of the most popular things ESPN has done in print, if not the most popular. What exactly is your problem? Nudity? Everyone here knows men have penis’ and testicles, and women have larger breasts and a vagina. Sexuality is part of our fabric. If you’re worried about kids seeing something like this, I’d much rather my young son see some boobs over death and violence in media.

      You all are lost…blind and deaf…caught up in the world and it’s snares & traps…good way to advocate for sick and demented people…next will be UK cheerleaders or maybe a former professor…or even Drew will do his own naked spread so sick folks can advocate evil doings in life..!

    9. BBNDan7

      You cannot even see his genitals, grow up.

    10. Blue Bill

      I vote for the cheerleaders. Bring it!!

    11. bigbluebanana

      Oh no! Nudity!!! It’s ruining ‘merica. I’d bet my own life you’ve looked at pictures of naked women (or men, whatever you’re in to) for pure pleasure before in your life. Don’t be hypocritical.

    12. CombatMedic_98

      I was a saint until I saw my first big blue banana…woe is me!

    13. Kat4Life

      Angry little toad aren’t you……..

    14. UK Big Board Update

      This photoshoot really grabbed CombatMedic by the p*ssy. LOL

  4. KYJelly

    Dat boy got some big ole feet

  5. King_tucky

    Is that a youth league size ball? Didn’t need official 29.5 huh?

    1. Booby Petrino

      who cares? When you’re as sweet, hot, and rich as him that doesn’t really matter. Most of us girls would take that any day over rude, broke, and packing!

  6. Alvaton

    No thanks

    1. UK Big Board Update

    2. cats646

      Fully clothed fat guys. Yes.

  8. W.C.

    I could have done without that. Photo-shoppers will have a party.

  9. UK96Champs

    Oh! Lol, that’s his hand in the third pic

  10. bigbluebanana

    I think there’s some shadow dong on the 2nd pic

  11. CombatMedic_98

    No not at all

  12. BBNDan7

    Some of y’all opened it, looked at the pictures, and then said “i don’t want to see that” even tho the headline tells you exactly what’s happening in the post.

    1. CombatMedic_98

      Didn’t know you knew it all…you already knew that though!!!!

    2. BBNDan7

      You’re big mad on the intergovernmental something you didn’t even have to look at. This websites comments are great

  13. Kat4Life

    Damn…… He has really transformed physically since his days on campus.

    1. CombatMedic_98

      Not really…you’re still slow and sluggish on the court KAT
