Naked Diana Taurasi On Cover Of ESPN The Mag 'Body Issue'

A very much undressed Diana Taurasi will be the first WNBA player to don the cover of the "Body Issue," which runs in the October 8 edition of ESPN The Magazine. The issue is a "celebration and exploration of the athletic form" and features nearly 40 athletes of diverse shapes, sizes, colors, genders and race. 

"Doing the shoot was something new and I had fun with it," said Taurasi. "For me, doing this was about facing the challenge and celebrating everything all of our bodies have been through and done. Cheryl, the photographer, was great to work with and hopefully, we came up with something interesting and maybe even inspiring."

Taurasi is fresh off leading Team USA to a Gold Medal in the FIBA World Championships.

Via Phoenix Mercury Twitter, here's a sneak peak at the cover.
