Karl Anthony-Towns is the latest NBA star to bare it all for ESPN’s annual Body issue of its magazine. The Minnesota Timberwolves star is opening up about his body and work habits in the magazine’s yearly look at various athletes in the nude.
Towns is the latest in a long line of NBA stars to leave nothing to the imagination. An early look at his photos hit the internet on Monday, and ESPN posted an interview Towns did with the magazine where he explained his nutrition and how his body has changed over his career.
Though he described himself as a “tubby” kid, he certainly grew into his frame and said maintaining it, though hard work, is something he loves about his job.
I love working out. I love the grind of my job. And I love the grind of the everyday challenge. I played all 82-plus games each year, including preseason. Never missed a practice. I’m always looking for ways to get better, and I think the biggest thing my body has a challenge with is keeping up with how much I really want to do in a day or in a month or in a week — just having to always be on top of its game.
