LeBron James, Heat teammates have a ‘girls’ day out,’ pamper themselves with pedicures (pics)


The Miami Heat had the night off Tuesday as the team was not scheduled to play until Wednesday against the Los Angeles Clippers after beating the Detroit Pistons on Monday night.

The grind of an NBA season, obviously, takes its toll, and must have had LeBron James’ dogs barking, so he, along with teammates Ray Allen, Roger Mason Jr. and Udonis Haslem, hit up a nail salon to get pedicures.

You know how it goes: The buddies get together, head to a salon, sit back in a comfortable chair for a relaxing pedi and just dish!

This isn’t the first time LeBron has organized a trip to the salon so he and his teammates could get some pedicures. In 2012, he and some Heat players headed out for pedis while the team was in Beijing (above).

LeBron posted some photos to Instagram chronicling how the gang bucked tradition and convention and opted for an activity more in line with a gals’ day out:

James writes, “Getting this great pedicure/foot massage+ shoulder/neck massage at the same dang time! Have to take care of your dogs Men! It’s part of our life blood! Essentials keys to life.” And how.

Ray Allen also contributed to photographic evidence of their outing via Instagram:

Allen concurs with LeBron’s thoughts on pedicures, writing, “How else do you think I’ve been able to stay around for 18 years. You gotta take care of your dawgs cuz they take care of you. Women know this but fellas your feet take a beating so get a pedicure every now and then.” Damn straight.

To be honest and perfectly forthright, there is absolutely nothing wrong with men getting pedicures, or manicures, for that matter. I’ve had them done from time to time and it’s awesome, just like massages and straight-razor shaves. Treat yourselves right, men! I mean, what man wants nasty-ass feet and unkempt fingernails?

To further embolden the assertion that there’s nothing wrong with men getting pedicures, especially, LeBron James, have you ever seen his gnarled, grotesque feet?

GAH!!! Jeez Louise. That’s ain’t right, man. Not sure a pedicure is going to help that hot mess.
