Hope you enjoyed the shot of LeBron James dunking on the Knicks while wearing a Batman mask, because the NBA will have no more of it. It's not because the league feels sorry for the Knicks; the league is only keeping its tradition of asking players to wear clear masks. As good as James looks, the NBA also asked him to switch to a clear mask—an order he'll comply with.
James actually had a clear mask before he played on Thursday but opted to wear the black one because of its fit and how it matches with the Heat uniforms. The NBA also requested Kyrie Irving and Kobe Bryant switch from black to clear masks.
Perhaps the NBA would've let James slide had he went full Bane. Who knows?
