LeBron, D-Wade, CP3 back with banana boat shenanigans (pics)


Just like last summer, LeBron James and some of his best NBA buddies have once again decided to spend the initial stages of the offseason enjoying the company of one another on a sun-splashed vacation. And perhaps most amusingly is how a banana boat has become a central part of the shenanigans.

James, along with two of his “Superstar Dream Team” pals, Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul, currently is living it up aboard a yacht off the coast of Mallorca, Spain, per dispatches from D-Wade’s Snapchat.

But it looks like a comical photo from a Bahamas vacation the three took last year — — along with Carmelo Anthony — has inspired the use of a Snapchat filter featuring the four NBA superstars riding on a banana boat.

First, here’s the photo from last summer that spawned the filter.

“Y’all see what’s in that water though? That banana boat,” Wade said in a post, via For The Win, before alluding to last year’s goofy image. “They think they’re funny.”


And here are some more screenshots from Wade’s Snapchat featuring said banana boat filter.

Funny stuff. But still not as hilarious as the original dorky photo, that’s for sure.
