John Wall to Pose Nude for ESPN the Magazine's Body Issue

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall will be one of 21 athletes to pose nude in ESPN The Magazine's fifth-annual Body Issue, which will hit newsstands July 12.

Other naked people to be featured in this year's edition including former Maryland Terrapins/current San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis, New York Mets ace Matt Harvey, three-time beach volleyball gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings and 77-year-old golf legend Gary Player. I think I'll be skipping that last one.

Coincidentally, Wall's body has been an issue Tuesday after The Washington Post's Jason Reid wrote a column questioning whether or not the Wizards should offer Wall a max contract extension after recanting his decision to cover himself with tattoos:

But not every player flip-flops on a topic in such a public way. Factor in that Wall is expected to receive a huge payday from the Wizards next month, and the timing of his tattoo revelation raises questions about his decision making. For a franchise with a history of backing the wrong players, that’s food for thought.

It's already been called the "world's dumbest column."
