Kenneth Faried, the 2013 Best of Denver winner as Best Nugget, is getting even more exposure from another publication -- ESPN The Magazine, which chose him as one of eight cover models for its annual "Body Issue," in which ripped athletes pose nude in order to make the rest of us realize how out of shape we are. For more evidence, check out the follow video, which shows Faried pumping up before he strips down. Manimal!
More from our Videos archive circa January: "Video: Kenneth Faried's live-to-the-Pepsi Center response to monster night is, 'Sh*t!'"
