After seven years of saying “no,” Dwyane Wade finally agreed to strip down and pose for ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue.
The mag has been trying to get D. Wade to pose since 2009, and in a piece published on ESPN.com he explains why he’s been reluctant to do so:
I was just never comfortable until about four years ago, when I started feeling comfortable with my body overall. As you go through life, you get more comfortable with yourself. It’s like everything else with life—you change, you grow. People might think it’s simple, but for me it was hard to even feel comfortable walking around naked when it’s just me and my wife. So the thought of doing it at a photo shoot in front of people [laughs]—it was like, “No way ever.”
Dwyane also opened up about his body insecurities — one being his ‘outie’ belly button.
