Admit it. The only issue of ESPN magazine you look forward to is their annual “Bodies We Want” edition. Every year, the publication stops and admires the human form in all its glory. They highlight those male and female athletes who push their physiques to their respective limits. While last year’s bunch as a whole were cumulatively hotter, there are a few standouts in this year’s list, most notably hockey player Joffrey Lupul. YUM!!!

A few of the other men featured in the annual parade of skin include San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Washington Wizards point guard John Wall and Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton. Three-time Masters winner Gary Player makes history as the oldest athlete ever to pose nude for the magazine. Player is a young 77 years. Check out Player and the rest of the guys below.
