For several years now, ESPN Magazine has put out an annual "Body Issue," which features (among other things, assumedly), tastefully nude pictures of athletes of all shapes, sizes and sports. Well, I say "nude," but most of the naughty bits are usually obscured by a tennis racquet or a cunningly placed hurdle or maybe just a finger or two. We're usually treated to plenty of butts, though. The latest butt that we know we'll be treated to comes to us courtesy of New York Knicks star Tyson Chandler, who will be the cover model. Hit the jump for all the bootylicious eye-candy. (Maybe NSFW depending on your job's stance on man-rump.)

Dang, Tyson. That's some Ken Griffey Jr.-level badonkadonks you got there. We still say "badonkadonks" for butts, right? I think that's AP style. "Badonkadonks" on first use, "trunk-junkage" thereafter.
To me, the most striking thing about this is how weird it looks to have a full sleeve and no tattoos on your butt-parts while you're naked. Seeing as how I have a full sleeve, I'm going to assume I look like this naked. I probably do. I even keep a black basketball in my room to cover up my jibblies when I'm strutting around the house nude.
I should call Tyson up. I think we'd have a lot to talk about.
