LeBron James name has been popping up a few times here lately, between his upcoming role in Space Jam 2 to his talk about of the Mount Rushmore of basketball… but the other day when the NBA told the superstar player that he couldn’t wear the carbon fiber black face mask during a game, Marvel Comics took notice.
The image, drawn by Greg Land, hit the internet shortly after. NBA might want to think about this… nice marketing deal to go with the new Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie and we know the NBA owners are always trying to find new ways to make money.

With the clear mask approved by the NBA, James was able to score a career and franchise high 61 points against the Bobcats (see below).
