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.

By the way, the FDIC covers bank deposits up to $250,000. So if Floyd's bank ever goes under, the majority of his cash will go down with it.
