Chris Paul stripped down to his birthday suit for ESPN's Body Issue. The issue showcases sports superstars in provocative poses.

The 34-year-old, nine-time NBA All Star posted photos from the shoot on his Instagram account on Wednesday.

In the photos, Paul's fit body glistens and he is bathed in blue lights.

"Man listen! It seems counter intuitive to think you would start feeling better in your body as you get older, but that’s EXACTLY the path I’m on!! 34, recently turned plant-based, and feeling pretty damn good! Stay disciplined and take care of yourselves, it all starts here!"

After the shoot, Paul discussed his body and staying in shape as he approaches middle age.

"My abs. When I eat, that's where the weight comes immediately. If I eat french fries, one or two, they go right there."

When asked what keeps him going, Paul said:

"My competitive nature. And my family and my team -- all my homies that I grew up with and everybody who supports me. I think when I go out and play, it's never just about me; it's about my whole squad."

Paul named Grant Hill and LeBron James as his influences.

  • MoneyMillz1914

    The majority are with Black women

  • MoneyMillz1914

    Nothing wrong with our bodies in their natural state. It was those evil whites who showed on our shores and condemned us for it in the name of their fake Christianity. The same whites who exploited and traumatized our bodies

  • Kimberly King

    His children are BEAUTIFUL! My gosh. They look so much like him!

    Now back to his photo ... I like.

  • LoveChild

    Another brother I gotta ride for. And I don’t ride for many brothers??. But if they’re married and in the house with their kids they have my respect.

    Yeah fools I know many black males cheat married or not but when the male is married the children are protected under law regardless if he cheats or not.

  • Kimberly King

    Yep. It's the NFL players who like white women. But the majority of black NBA players have black wives. Which is crazy because they generally make more money than the NFL players. But these football players be ready to give it all to Becky just to suffer at the end. A la Albert Haynesworth fat black ass. Who molested a black woman at her job and lied about it. He said she was just jealous because his girlfriend was white. Pathetic

  • LoveChild

    Right. He’s rare. He’s making sure his money stays black stays in the black family. His black kids inherit his money instead of a white female with the mixed kids and the white female will be giving the money right back to her people.

  • MoneyMillz1914

    Definitely

  • Kimberly King

    Agreed. I'm waiting. Because um his wife is black a
    AND beautiful.

  • LoveChild

    I swear black female females fall for anything seriously. You’re the same female that said ASAP Rocky is cute?????? Your comments are open and I just scrolled down and there it was #hypocrite

  • Vegas1989

    Nice biscuits CP3.....LOL...

  • Wreckognize Game

    What's this? A issue that caters to gay men? I can't see any straight men buying or looking through this issue or any others featuring a naked man

  • Renee26

    He ain't need enough coverage to get me goin

  • Logan Roberts

    No thanks Chris, but nice looking family.

  • MoneyMillz1914

    You said you only dated white men tho? Or did I miss something?

    And he's not rare, most Black NBA players are married to Black women

  • Wreckognize Game

    Stepping on toes, break a nugga nose (in his Master P voice) ?

  • PROPHETMAJOR

  • Strappyheels

  • teather

    The "body" issue has like 4 different covers. This one apparently is not your flavor, understood. They have a naked soccer and gymnast that may be more to your liking. :)

  • 305 Mom E

  • Melanated Goddess??

    My man is so fine. His daughter looks exactly like him. Both his kids are gorgeous. His wife's beautiful. Wish I got to him first.

  • Renee26

    I can see straight men looking at the ones with women on the cover but not this one.

    Can you imagine walking in on your man reading that on the toilet...and all you see is the cover?? ?

    IJS ?

  • che’lint

    I remember back in the day when playgirl had covers like this. The store had to cover up the picture. Now booty all tooted out. https://media1.giphy.com/media/J06U9fq0i8Dk6fK89X/giphy-downsized-medium.gif

  • MRiGOThim

    He does look better with his clothes off O_o

  • MRiGOThim

    They said sports NBA/NFL has a gay agenda...maybe they're right cuz I'm here 4 it :P

  • Shira Harding-James

    Mmmmm

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Beautiful family. His wife was with him before the NBA. I'm glad they are still going strong. His kids look JUST alike. They are both beautiful.

  • Being bad is way more fun

    I never thought CP3 was that attractive so I never really paid attention to him but now that I can see whats under these cloths I will have to pay more attention to the total packed. This is why you just dont go by looks you may be missing out on a blessing lol !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • BRUADARACHLIFE

    I feel like this the new sellout

  • DeepThinker

    Niiiice ?

  • Vonn

    CP3 got a bubble butt.

  • Vonn

    Yesssss, that's my jam. One of my favorite Prince jamz.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Why does his son look like Leslie Jones when she was that age?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    LOL

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    I need more angles before I comment fully.

  • Vonn

    Listen, when I tell you I ran that song in the hole!! My previous neighbors know all the lyrics to Blue Light because I played it so much. Now I have to make tomorrow a day of Prince. ?

  • Vonn

    Sexy M.F is on that album too. It's on!

  • currvalicious

    Yes, I second that! A full frontal (minus the ball) would be very generous of him.?

  • Jussjess25

    I like it.. it doesn't look gay. And that I’m happy about.

  • currvalicious

    Which is so disgustingly sickening to me. I never understood that. Honestly I don't want to. It's coonery at the highest of levels.

  • currvalicious

    He ought to be lynched.

  • Valerie Henderson

    I wish Shaq would do full body spread, feet and all.

  • Kimberly King

    He's having kidney issues now and he's all over IG BEGGING for a kidney ! Lol he's done some really foul things to black women and to people in general. One of him ex wife's called him the N word all the time and physically abused him all the time. His bitch ass didn't do anything. I look down on all black men who date whites women.

  • exlurker

    You never hear of him having affairs either. He seems like a good clean guy. This is the sort of family that should be portrayed more by the media.

  • currvalicious

    Y know he's w/Beverly Johnspn's daughter. They make a nice couple.

  • LoveChild

    I’m looking at the positive big picture yes I will repeat it since many of y’all don’t know what this is about. His money now stays in a black family for at least two generations.

    When the black male ballers swirl their money goes to the race of his wife. Again I know so many of you have normalized black male swirling you’re used to seeing them give their legacy over to non-black women.

  • LoveChild

    ????

  • LoveChild

    He does look very sexy

  • LoveChild

    It will be a sellout if he had a white Asian or Mexican wife.

  • LoveChild

    Agreed.

  • Valerie Henderson

    I want him to put BBQ sauce on dem feet..?

  • currvalicious

    I remember his trifling behind. Such a pitiful excuse. Those white women can have him. I have a young black son (my black boy joy?) & I always extol the beauty & virtues of black women when I speak of us. I want him to hear it early & often. I praise our skin tones, our resolve, hair, intellect, etc. When he goes out into the world & begin to date, the foundation will already have been set. We need to praise & show love to our own. We can't have anyore Al Haynesworths out here.

  • currvalicious

    I haven't normalized anything. If you read my comment properly, you wouldn't get me normalixing anything. When they w/women other than black, I know what that means financially. It all goes to whites. From the mixed kids who'll marry white (in most cases) to the white spouse who'll secure her family. So you need not explain any of this to me. I'm well aware

  • LoveChild

    You’re the one hanging on my bra strap so it’s time for you to unhook yourself????? No need to reply to any more of my comments but I’m sure you will because fonts like you like to have the last word?

  • Wreckognize Game

    Yes, I know. She is a beauty. I just like how he handles biz as a grown azz man when it comes to his kids. I really date men CP3’s skin color with a Gerald Lavert body. ?

  • Pamela

    ????

  • Pamela

    To be fair Lovechild, he is cute. Now, as for his previous comments re he's no Sharpton or Jesse, that was not cute.

  • Pamela

    Let ne guess--you're not a millionaire. but you're pocket watching someone else.

  • currvalicious

    No I'm not a millionaire. However, i'm allowed to comment on a topic any way I choose to. If you don't like it to bad. Save your sarcasm for someone else. And then I'm sure it's "me", not " ne". Maybe you should proofread your before you post. So enthused to type some slick shyt.
