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