Dwyane Wade, Conor McGregor, and Von Miller Get Naked for ESPN’s ‘Body Issue’
In addition to the Miami Heat star, the UFC fighter, and the NFL MVP, there will be 16 other men and women featured in the magazine. ESPN released the names, which includes NFL star Antonio Brown and Chris Mosier — the first transgender athlete to pose.
Wade, who appears on the cover of the sports mag, admits to turning invitations to be part of the issue multiple times in recent years.
“I was very nervous. Very nervous,” he said in an interview with The Associated Press. “It was not natural for me. There’s some people who can get in front of the camera without anything on, but it was not natural for me at all. Not one moment of it. But deep down inside, deep down, it felt good to overcome something — my fear, my insecurity.”
The Body Issue will be available online July 6 and on newsstands July 8.
