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?
