Sure, the Heat won an interesting matchup with the Knicks last night -- but who wants to talk about "X"s and "O"s? Did you see that masked man?
Zorro? The Dark Knight? Whatever comparisons you make, the man behind the mask scored 31-points in his first game back since suffering a broken nose. When asked about his choice of the all-black mask, LeBron stated he picked it because it went with his uniform.
In a league obsessed with fashion, both good and bad (short sleeve jerseys?) I can't imagine the league just letting this one go. Surely there will be authentic replica "King James" jerseys and black mask combo packages for sale on NBA.com in the near future, right? And while we're at it, we can't keep the same nickname jersey for LeBron. If you're going to dawn a black mask and drop thirty points on an opponent, let's get a little more creative.
Sound Off: What nickname best fits LeBron while wearing his black carbon-fiber mask?
