John Wall & Kenneth Faried strip down for ESPN’s “Body Issue” [photos]


It’s that time of year when athletes strip down for ESPN the magazine for their “Body Issue.” Two NBA jocks featured, Wizards point guard John Wall and Nuggets big man Kenneth Faried.

John Wall’s shot reminds me a Tupac shoot from back in the day.



Kenneth Faried made the cover.

Faried’s one of eight athletes to appear on covers of this year’s attention-getting issue, joining 77-year-old golfer Gary Player, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, U.S. women’s national soccer team forward Sydney Leroux, beach volleyball player Kerri Walsh Jennings, Motocross racer Tarah Geiger and NHRA Funny Car driver Courtney Force.

Ok ladies, are you adding either of these photos to the “saved” collection?
