Cavs’ Kevin Love to be featured in ESPN ‘Body Issue’
NEW YORK– The Cavaliers’ Kevin Love is about to bare all. He, along with several other athletes, will be featured in ESPN The Magazine’s seventh annual “Body Issue.”
In a preview video posted on ESPN Monday, Love says, “I can’t believe I’m doing this.”
Love had surgery almost two months ago to repair his shoulder. He was injured during Game 4 of the Boston Celtics series when he and Kelly Olynyk were both in pursuit of a loose ball. Olynyk pulled on Love’s left arm, leading to a dislocated shoulder which required surgery. Love said he reached out to Olynyk via text a week after the incident.
Other athletes photographed include Bryce Harper, Odell Beckham, Jr., basketball stars DeAndre Jordan and Brittney Griner, U.S. soccer players Ali Krieger and Jermaine Jones, gymnast Aly Raisman, swimmer Natalie Coughlin, French Open champion Stan Wawrinka, NHL All-Star Tyler Seguin and the husband-wife team of surfer Laird Hamilton and former beach volleyball player Gabby Reece.
Also taking part are three 300-plus-pound Indianapolis Colts offensive linemen: Anthony Castonzo, Todd Herremans and Jack Mewhort.
ESPN said Monday that the issue will be posted online July 6 and on newsstands July 10.
