Karl-Anthony Towns of the Timberwolves and Olympic star Jessie Diggins.

Karl-Anthony Towns' weaknesses were exposed by the Houston Rockets in the NBA playoffs, and now he's exposing everything else to the world. 

Towns, along with Minnesota native Jessie Diggins – an Olympic gold medal-winning cross-country skier – will pose naked for ESPN's 2019 "The Body Issue," which comes out June 25. 

Diggins, born in St. Paul and a native of Afton, Minnesota, stunned the world during this year's Olympics by making a late charge to win the gold by inches, passing Sweden's best sprinter by 0.19 seconds. 

The only other athletes with connections to Minnesota to bare all for ESPN in the past are Adrian Peterson (2009), Herschel Walker (2010), Sylvia Fowles (2011), Larry Fitzgerald (2014), Kevin Love (2015), Ryan Dungey (2016), Brent Burns (2017), and Jocelyne and Monique Lamoureax (2017). 

No word on whether Bartolo Colon will ever make an appearance. 

More: Jalen Rose would be "shocked" if Wolves don't trade Towns or Wiggins.
