NBA Prefers LeBron James Wears Clear Mask vs Magic

The NBA might be trying to ruin all the fun that was had on Twitter last night.

According to B/R’s Ethan Skolnick, the league prefers that LeBron James wear a clear mask on March 1st vs the Orlando Magic:

It turns out the league’s rule about this has to do with opponents being able to see players’ eyes:

“The reason the league prefers the ‘clear’ is so that opponents can see a player’s eyes. They have set rules about goggles, which came into play with (Dwyane) Wade in New York in 2011.”

It’s pretty ironic that LeBron’s teammate is the one who essentially got this rule going. I for one hope that the league changes it’s position on this because I would love to see more memes like the one below.
