Good morning, KSR! That’s a naked John Wall covered in bubbles that you’re looking at. Wall posed for ESPN the Magazine’s annual Body issue, and well, he’s naked. Here are more of the pictures and quotes from his editorial. All photos are by Peggy Sirota for ESPN the Magazine.
“I love when people talk bad about me. When I wasn’t playing, a lot of people were doubting me and already writing me off, saying I’m not going to improve, saying there’s going to be all these young guys coming in. I knew my time was coming and just to stay patient.”
“My arms are kind of skinny. I’ve gained a lot of weight — I went into college at 165, left at 185, and now I’m at 210 — but my arms haven’t really kept up. As long as I’m getting stronger in the right way, though, making sure I’m preventing myself from getting injured and being able to take hits in the game and finish through contact, I’m cool — they don’t really need to be that big.”
