LeBron James will be sporting his signature headband when the Miami Heat take floor against the San Antonio Spurs in Game 7 of the NBA finals Thursday night.The headband came off in the fourth quarter of Tuesday's Game 6 as he blocked a shot by Spurs forward Tim Duncan. It remained off as James proceeded to lead one of the most compelling comebacks in NBA Finals history. He scored 16 of his game-high 32 points in the fourth quarter alone and the Heat eventually avoided elimination by winning, 103-100.Naturally, this led to a flurry of speculation as to whether James would opt to go with or without the head gear in Game 7. James answered that question on Wednesday when speaking with the media.“I’ll probably start off with it, man. A little superstitious. If it gets knocked off, then me and him will have a discussion if he will return.”So, there you have it. James will indeed by donning the headband for the chance to bring home the championship.His reasoning for wearing it seems sounds, too. James said he didn't perform so well the last time he decided not to wear one.“My rookie year preseason. I started the preseason off not playing — I think we were in Detroit in my rookie year. I didn’t play too well. I didn’t like it.”May the power of the 'band be with you.Via For the Win
