As soon as the Heat won Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Spurs last night, everyone watching the game immediately thought one thing: Will LeBron James wear his trademark headband in Game 7?
You see, LeBron was playing like crap last night prior to losing his headband at the beginning of the fourth quarter. But once it came off? LBJ was lights out. It was literally like he was a different player out on the court. So a lot of people thought that he might leave the headband off for Game 7. But according to King James, he'll be back to normal tomorrow night.
"I'll probably start off with it," he said earlier this afternoon. "A little superstitious. If it gets knocked off, then me and him will have a discussion if he will return."
Worried, Heat fans? Er, don't be. Even though LeBron was a beast without his headband, his teammate Shane Battier made a good point today.
"The power is not in the headband, good people," he said. "The power is in LeBron James."
True indeed. But if LeBron does start off struggling with the headband on, don't be surprised if he ditches it at halftime.
