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.”

See a video of the shoot below:

    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

      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..!

      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.

      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!

    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.
