New York Knicks’ star Tyson Chandler leaves nothing much to the imagination but the front. Chandler, 7′ 1”, graces the cover of ESPN The Magazine’s fourth annual “Body Issue,” which is slated to hit stands Wednesday.
Daily News reports:
“It was definitely something I haven’t done before,” Chandler told the Daily News.
The father of three laughed when thinking of what his teammates might say when the issue hits stands. “I don’t even know if any of them know that I did it, but I’m sure I’ll get teased when it comes out,” he said.
The modest hoops player said his wife, Kimberly, didn’t like the idea of sharing him with hordes of other women. But after some discussion, the artistry involved appealed to Chandler, an avid painter and photographer.
“I have the ability to do some extraordinary things in the court. I’m not one of those stand-in-the-mirror type of people,” he said. “I love different aspects of art, and I can appreciate when a photo can be done correctly.”
Others also included are New York Ranger Brad Richards, Bronx fencer Tim Morehouse, the WNBA’s Candace Parker, tennis player Daniela Hantuchova and track star Carmelita Jeter.
