Thunder players like a good post-game pedicure

James Harden, Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant have all had manicures and pedicures at Nails by Helen, says shop owner, Tom Nguyen.

Harden likes the attention, but Kevin Durant, well, not so much, Nguyen said.

The last time Durant came in for nail treatments, the shop was very busy and Durant was barraged with requests for photos and autographs.

“I think he was overwhelmed. The crowd was a little bit too much, I think,” Nguyen said. However, Durant wasn't too shy to post on Instagram a photo of his large feet during a pedicure several months ago.

Nguyen said his nail techs give the Thunder a little extra TLC on their fingernails and toenails, but when it comes to cutting them a sweet deal, Nguyen said the players won't have it.

“I have clients that actually offer to pay for them and they turn down the offer,” he said. But they are always very friendly to fans, Nguyen said. He said he hasn't seen any of the players since his last visit by Harden.
