Diana Taurasi graces the cover of ESPN magazineOctober 7th, 2010 - 8:20 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
Get ready to be surprised with the nude pictures of the Women Basketball star Diana Taurasi. The picture is featured on the cover of ESPN’s magazine, Body Issue.
The basketball star who became only the seventh player in the history of women’s basketball in America to win NCAA, WNBA and Olympic titles said in an interview that “I am who I am…whether I have clothes on or off”.
Her nude picture has shocked many of her fans who saw the 2009 WNBA MVP as a role model.
Diana is a talented basketball player. She was the Naismith College Player of the year on two occasions in 2003 and 2004. She was also named the Associated Player of the Year in 2003 and she won the Wade Trophy the same year.
She said that, “Doing the shoot was something new and I had fun with it. For me, doing this was about facing the challenge and celebrating everything all of our bodies have been through and done. Cheryl, the photographer, was great to work with and hopefully, we came up with something interesting and maybe even inspiring.”
During her college playing days, she averaged 15.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game. That statistics helped her lead the UConn team to three consecutive NCAA championships between the period of 2000 and 2004 winning a record 139 games and losing only 8.
