LeBron James Debuts “Batman” Mask

After breaking his nose against the Thunder a week ago, LeBron James has returned to the court wearing a black carbon-fiber mask tonight against the visiting Knicks. The mask’s color is the same as the BANE allusion ‘Bron made on IG, but as the TNT crew showed at halftime, it’s more Batman than BANE.

Still, even wearing the “uncomfortable” mask, LeBron had 15 points on 7-for-9 shooting from the field in the first half. Two of his points came off this stellar continuation bucket (he missed the free throw) after Carmelo Anthony tried to wrap him up.

    Microfibre?? Lol. You guys realize that microfibre is a type of cloth, right? The mask is CARBON fibre.

    It’s actually a good look for him. Maybe he can get a sparta-like mask next time, complete with mohawk, to help hide the receding hairline?

    Thanks for fixing it Dime.
    I don’t know why more players don’t wear a carbon fiber mask. The material is super light and very strong. I used to do some work on cars and a carbon fibre hood can be lifted with one finger.

    Definitely better than the common clear plastic ones.
