The NBA’s biggest star complains about the sleeves — can we get rid of them now?

“I don’t want the wear sleeves!”

There have been multiple players that have complained about the NBA jerseys with sleeves. LeBron James has talked about it before but last night, after a 19-point performance and loss against the Spurs, spoke up against it again.

“I’m not making excuses, but I’m not a big fan of the jerseys. Every time I shoot it feels like it’s just pulling right up underneath my arm. I already don’t have much room for error on my jump shot. It’s definitely not a good thing.”

When will the NBA and Adidas listen? The gimmick is terrible and unnecessary. But they continue to roll them out, thinking that it’s accepted by fans.

Until they do so, players will continue to complain about it. They’ll find an excuse to blame it. Athletes are creatures of habit and disrupting their feel when wearing a jersey is a big no-no. Shame on you, NBA and Adidas.

LeBron James May Have To Ditch Black Mask Due to NBA Crackdown

LeBron James May Have To Ditch Black Mask Due to NBA Crackdown

This is what I was thinking would happen and now it has. LeBron was growing too strong and powerful with the black mask. Back to the clear one!

The Big Lead

NBA: New York Knicks at Miami Heat

LeBron may have to save the black mask for exclusive key parties and outfoxing Mexican officials. The NBA has asked LeBron to switch to a clear mask before tonight’s game against Orlando. LeBron is appealing the decision, presumably on behalf of Heat fans who bought incredibly topical t-shirts. But, lest fans panic, ESPN reports he may find a way to “personalize” the clear one.

This is the NBA’s biggest fashion crackdown since the league banned playing in tights before the 2007 season. The league continues its battle against basketball’s drift toward Venetian Carnival.

LeBron James and the mask is going to be a very odd fashion statement

Scary.

The same.

Last night LeBron James wore a mask for the first time since breaking his nose. Unlike the one that Richard Hamilton wore, this one was all black like the Kobe Bryant design.

But look at this one that James is wearing. It’s like some kind of carbon fiber material and it looks really menacing. In fact, it looks downright frightening. A lot different than the mask he wore in Cleveland.

I remember when Dwyane Wade wore a band-aid and it became a fashion statement, even though his wound had already healed. With James and Wade on the same team, is there a chance that they find a way to get creative and make this mask full of design? That’s where it could end up being. The biggest star on the planet has a chance to influence people in a way like never before.

Of course the commissioner can just say no to all of this and it’s OK. But knowing James, he’ll likely seriously consider something like that.

Maybe kids will buy masks to wear when playing pick up ball. Who knows?

LeBron James should use Google.com

I’m pretty sure that going on Google would get you the answer. In fact, you can buy one right off the WWE site.

Or since you are rich and powerful, one of your rich and powerful friends could help you out. I’m pretty sure placing a call to Vince McMahon would be no problem. Maybe John Cena will help you out.

Appreciating LeBron James a little bit more

Amazing.

This GIF made by Drew Sheppard shows every single shot made by LeBron James in Game 7 of the NBA Finals.

Look at all the different spots James can score from the floor. He could be very well the most versatile player of all time with that ability right there. It’s fascinating with technology these days that we can see a graphic like this and just be amazed at the kind of talent he has become.

Having been pushed to a Game 7 and coming out on top, James finally rose to the challenge that I needed to see him in. This game solidified him in my eyes as the megastar that we’ve expected him to become.

Wiping the slate clean: Accepting and appreciating LeBron James and the Heat’s NBA title run

Enjoy the accolades, LeBron James. You've earned it.

Enjoy the accolades, LeBron James. You’ve earned it.

I remember my birthday back in 2010. I remember it very well. It wasn’t because of a party because I didn’t have one. I didn’t go out, but I stayed home that day. But that day stood out to me because it was also the same day as “The Decision.” That day made me dislike LeBron James.

I wasn’t going to deny that he was a talented player. But the way he left Cleveland, the way he was so immature about so many things and then the way he handled the decision, made me think that the spotlight was too big and he wasn’t ready to handle it.

I took joy in seeing the Heat lose their first year together. I cringed last season when they won the title. But now, after a thrilling third appearance in the Finals and a second straight title, I’ve finally let it all go.
