ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — I remember as a kid reading an interview with Julius “Dr. J” Erving, who talked about how he would regularly get manicures. His reasoning, as I recall, was that he made a living using his hands, so it only made sense to make sure his hands were in the best shape possible.
Apparently this same logic applies to the Miami Heat. Yesterday, several members of the Heat took to social media to document an off-day in Los Angeles at a nail salon getting manis and pedis. As LeBron James tweeted, “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!”
As Udonis Haslem wrote on Instagram, “Getting a lil work done on my dogs with @kingjames, @moneymase8, @rayn34. Ray (Allen) says this is one of the keys to having a lengthy career. Hell if I knew wrapping my feet up like peanut butter and jelly was gon help get me 18 years I could’ve been trying this at home. Lol.”
