LeBron James Is Batman (Pics)

We’ve all seen NBA players wear those creepy-looking face masks before. Guys suffer facial fractures all the time in basketball, and if they want to keep playing instead of sitting out for several weeks they have to suck it up and look like a weirdo.

Such is the case with LeBron James right now. Last week Serge Ibaka broke the King’s nose and, after missing Miami’s game against Chicago earlier in the week, LeBron decided to bite the bullet and don the mask last night against the Knicks.

Here’s the thing, though. Most guys wear clear masks. LeBron, however, is rocking a black mask, and it’s just about the creepiest thing anyone has ever seen:

Obviously, the internet wasn’t just going to let this go without chiming in. In addition to the obvious comparisons to Batman, Darth Vader, and Hannibal Lecter, there were also these:

Of course, the goofy mask didn’t affect LeBron’s performance. He just score a game-high 31 points, and the Heat ripped the Knicks, 108-81.
