Here is a fashion spread he did for Russian Esquire. According to google translate, the caption for these photos reads, “Basketball Timothy Mozgov (216 cm), which from 2010 played in the NBA, he tried to try on a shirt designed for the common man.”

Welcome to Hollywood Mozgov, you’re going to do just fine.
