Recent GQ cover guy LeBron James wasn’t going to wear just any old black mask to protect his broken nose. Nope, he made his return to the court wearing in stylish fashion by donning a carbon fiber, Kevlar, limited edition face protector for the Heat’s Thursday night game against the Knicks in Miami. James finished with 31 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists as the Heat won 108-82 against the hapless Knicks.

Looks like a movie poster with the red hue saturating the photo.

Since the competition between the two teams was so light, Chris Bosh had time to clown around before tipoff. He stole ‘Bron’s mask and uploaded the above pic to his Instagram with the caption “I’m BATMAN!!!!!!!! #lebronsmask #darkknightrises #wheresalfred.”

The Knicks are currently on a four-game losing streak and nothing about their future says bright days are ahead anytime soon.

And, since we’re here, Jimmy Fallon continues hitting 1.000 as the new Tonight Show host. In the skit below, he and LeBron play and sing about “Wastepaper Basketball” in a tune most of you rap fans will be familiar with.

Have a Friday y’all.
