Default Why has LeBron still not learned to stop biting his nails on he bench?

I swear every game the camera zooms to him sitting on the bench and you see him munching away on his nails. With how image conscious he supposedly is you would think somebody would tell him to cut that out. That really doesn't go along with the image they're trying to build of him.

Some people use heroin, some people abuse alcohol, LeBron chews his nails. Nobody's perfect.

Y'know with the physicality of the NBA game, there's probably not only his sweat, but also the sweat of other men on those nails. And I bet that not everyone he touches during games has good hygiene. Like Tyrus Thomas - I bet he's too dumb to wash his hands after taking a dump. Someday Lebron'll suffer a week's worth of diarrhoea from the nail biting. Then he'll stop doing it and that will be the end of that.

I think it's good for his image, it shows he's got street hunger.

It's not a big deal, in fact it works better for him as far as sponsorships and stuff goes, because it's a unique personality trait.

Because he's a grown ass man and can bite his nails as long as he wants. Those guys are so far up his butt he could throw kittens off the empire state building, and piss on them on their way down, and they wouldn't say sh!t to him about it.

I can just imagine 2LeTTeRs walks by a cold, dark alley years from now and sees Bron, dead broke, huddling close to the garbage can bonfire with the rest of his homeless buddies. "Hey asshole, shoulda quit biting your nails!".

j/k. But seriously, that guy has more yes-men than Mr. Burns. He's good.
