Dwyane Wade is all over ESPN the Magazine's cover—butt naked—for the magazine’s July Body issue.

The Miami Heat star spoke about the shoot with ABC News and described it as the most uncomfortable one he's ever had.

"When I got done, I felt still uncomfortable, and when it comes out, I think I'll still be uncomfortable, but inside, I felt this sigh of relief that I once again overcame something that I feared, and I tried something that I never thought I would six or seven years ago," he said.

Of course, wife Gabrielle Union is Wade's biggest fan:

Wade also spoke about his marriage to Union, saying that she's his best friend and how she's helping him become a better person.

"I think we've both done that for each other," he said. "I get to see a different side of her no one else does and her insecurities, and she gets to know mine as well. We go out and are public figures, so we share that [with the world] but we don't share it all … I think that's one of the things that drove me to be in a relationship with her and even get married. … I felt that she has been helping me be a better person."
