You already knew that Rajon Rondo was born with 6 fingers on each hand (which were removed when he was very young). These recent photos of LeBron James—and LeBron James’ feet— may make you wonder whether all NBA superstars have something crazy going on with their hands and feet. Older photos have shown that LeBron has some pretty swollen toes, and one picture from a few years ago made a few people think he has six toes on one of his feet. That does not seem to be the case, but anyway, it’s clear that LeBron has some messed up feet, which makes one wonder how he can dominate on the court… and sell all those shoes.
This photo makes it seem as if the condition of LeBron’s feet are deteriorating… older pictures were bad, but not this bad. Could this be the result of an on-court incident? Probably not, because David Stern would have kicked the offending player out of the league, right?
Are we “hating” on the best player of our least favorite team? Debatably. But come on… look at those feet!
UPDATE: LeBron has 2 rings and Melo has none, so LeBron has beautiful feet, according to Miami sources.
NOTE: Despite the fact that certain players, such as Derrick Rose, Andrew Bynum, Rajon Rondo, and Kevin Love could certainly be in the top 10, they are not on my list. I also view Dwight Howard as an elite player, but his back woes knock him down a couple spots on this year’s list.
LeBron James— I don’t think there is any legitimate argument against this pick.
Kevin Durant— A guard’s ballhandling skills with a power forward’s body, combined with a lethal jumper, make him #2.
Carmelo Anthony— The league’s best pure scorer, and an excellent rebounder.
Chris Paul— The best point guard alive, can also take over on defense.
Kobe Bryant— Has become a bit of a volume scorer, but still as dangerous as anyone out there.
Dwyane Wade— Has lost a step, and has been overshadowed by James. Still a great scorer and a terrific defender.
Russell Westbrook— Shoots a bit too much, but one of the best finishers in the league. Probably the league’s best athlete.
Dwight Howard— A bad attitude doesn’t stop him from being the league’s dominant center, hands-down.
Tony Parker— Has to be given some credit for the consistent excellence of the Spurs.
Stephen Curry— The best shooter alive, quick off the dribble.
