Kobe Bryant gets his nails done before big game

Kobe Bryant knows how to psych out the Celtics. Show up with the buffest fingernails and nary a stray cuticle in sight. Us magazine reports that the Laker had his dribbling digits and toes manicured in Boston in his hotel room between games 1 and 2. The technician says that Bryant was ‘really concerned about the appearance of his hands and feet.’ That detail tells us nothing. Did he hound her to file down the ridges? Did he request rounded or square tips? Apparently, Kobe gets mani-pedis before most games.

(In this picture, he’s saying: ‘Watch the nails!’)

But Bryant isn’t the only athlete in touch with his feminine side. New York Yankee Tony Womack and David Beckham get regular nail treatments and Houston Rocket Dikembe Mutombo even co-owns the Nseya Salon & Spa in Atlanta.


The Rage would love to see a French manicure on Bryant.
