No men? No problem ... at least for Vanessa Bryant and La La Anthony ... who took some time away from their famous husbands last night for a basketball wives dinner date in L.A. ... and TMZ has the footage.
The two hit up Madeo in West Hollywood -- without Kobe Bryant or Carmelo Anthony -- and after the meal, they posed up for photogs who snapped away like crazy.
So, are there actual NBA implications from the dinner date? Well, Carmelo becomes a free agent after this upcoming season ... and the Bryants could be trying to woo Carmelo away from NY and sign on with the Lakers.
It's not an impossible situation -- after all, Carmelo did tell TMZ he owns a pair of purple and gold shoes.
