Since breaking his nose in last Thursday night game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, LeBron James has been wearing a protective face mask. Considering how weird-looking the mask are, LeBron had joked about having a special mask made for him. He was clearly joking, but these are his exact words:

''I've been talking to Marvel Comics for the last couple of days, and DC Comics, to try to come up with one of the greatest masks of all time... so we'll see what happens.''

Who knew Marvel Comics would actually take him up on the offer the night after he scored a career high 61 points!!! The Captain America inspired mask does look cool and you have to think this is also a great marketing scheme to promote Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Regardless, it looks really cool (and I'm jealous).
