San Antonio Spurs forward Marco Belinelli posed for the cover of GQ Italia nearly nude, surrounded by cheerleaders in an apparent homage to Sports Illustrated covers with Doug McDermott and Larry Bird.
Yes, that's a San Antonio Spur donning a cover with only socks. Tim Duncan
would never do this must've been busy.
The cover seems to be inspired by the SI cover that put Doug McDermott, then with Creighton, on the cover of the 2014 March Madness preview. That, in turn, was a clear recreation of the original Indiana State Larry Bird March Madness preview from 1977.
