Filipino-American pitcher Tim "The Freak" Lincecum has landed the cover of GQ’s February 2011 issue. The 26-year-old player for the San Francisco Giants was named one of the "25 Coolest Athletes of All Time" alongside Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali, Tom Brady and more.

According to CBS San Francisco, the GQ list features "sports icons past and present, those most remembered and revered; athletes who played the game like it was an expression of who they were, while teaching the fans how to be big-time with grace, style, and swagger."

In November last year, Lincecum led the Giants to victory in the World Series Game 5 against the Texas Rangers, winning the best-of-seven series, 4-1. He has received the Cy Young award in the National League twice.
