- An old picture of LeBron James' mutilated looking feet goes viral.
- King James has put a lot of strain on his feet over the years.
- Fans do not hold back and claim that the Lakers star's feet look disgusting.
A picture of LeBron James‘ feet recently went viral on social media and instantly caught the attention of the basketball community. As most fans should be aware, King James is a 4x NBA champion and currently playing in Year 21 with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Since LeBron can be considered a celebrity and global personality due to his impact on the sport of basketball, any and all information related to him is consumed by his fanbase and critics alike. A picture of the Lakers star’s feet is no exception to this rule.
As one might be able to tell from the images, LeBron’s feet do not look normal, to say the least. That said, fans might want to know more about what caused this “condition” and how others felt upon taking a look at these photos.
King James’ feet have been taking an immense physical toll for more than two decades
Basketball is a sport where players put an incredible amount of pressure on their lower extremities. After all, wearing tightly worn shoes while running and constantly changing directions cannot be too good for the circulation of blood in the feet. Not to mention having one’s toes stepped on or rolling an ankle on a consistent basis.
King James has been in the league for 21 seasons right now and is still considered by many to be one of the most explosive athletes and an unstoppable force when running at the rim to score. Although he is supposed to be on the backend of his career, LeBron has continued to put an immense physical toll on his feet and likely started this process going all the way back to his middle school and high school days.
Fans show disgust towards LeBron James’ feet
Some fans could not hold back their emotions after finding the picture and did not hesitate to make their feelings clear on X. Others even went on to claim that King James’ teammates could be considered victims since they were the ones who got to see his feet up close and personal in the Lakers’ lockerroom.

Although LeBron’s feet look far from perfect when compared to a model or celebrity, it is important for fans to remember that his feet have taken more impact than their brains could likely imagine. Therefore, them not appearing aesthetic at this point in his career is the least that one should expect after taking all these factors into consideration.
