NBA baller Amar’e Stoudemire covers the latest issue of ESPN the magazine for their “Body Issue.” The 27-year-old New York Knick is naked as all clear day, and we’re loving it!
Stoudemire is shot while jumping into a pool with a basketball in hand ready to dunk on somebody. The baller takes his other hand to cover his jewels, with added and very obvious help from PhotoShop. Boy! What we wouldn’t give to be a fly lurking in the backdrop bushes of this shoot!
This photo is only one of more pre-released photos from the special issue. The first photo features USA keeper Tim Howard with a pair of goalie gloves covering his jewels. The subsequent set shows some of the female athletes, including WNBA star Diana Taurai.
ESPN is obviously looking to attract female readers, with a few male subscribers—men who are likely to be reading for sports news, unlike many of us; we’re so in it for the pictures. This issue hits stands Friday, October 8!
