LeBron James, wore a mask and was awesome

LebronJames tore up the Knicks while wearing a black mask that made him look a bit like the Caped Crusader.

If Dwight Howard is Superman, then LeBron James is Batman.

At least that’s what Miami Heat teammate Chris Bosh said after James dominated the New York Knicks to the tune of 31 points on Thursday night while donning a menacing black mask to protect his broken nose.

“I think he played like Batman out there,” center Chris Bosh said. “I think it really helped him out. He played great.”

If Batman did play basketball, one has to imagine it would be a lot like James, with plenty of aggression and power. James certainly looked the part with his black, carbon-fiber mask, which he said was a last-second choice.

“It went with the uniform,” James said of his reason for going with the dark design to match the classic black uniforms the Heat wore for Thursday’s game. “I knew we were wearing throwback uniforms. I was able to get a carbon fiber one, which is actually lighter than the one I had been wearing in practice. It came through at the last minute, so I went with it.”
