Yep. It’s come to this, folks. LeBron James’ mouthpiece is making national headlines! This mess kicked off after folks spotted it during game 2 of the Heat/Knicks first-round playoff series Monday night.

Fans noticed that LBJ was rocking a mouthpiece with the Roman numerals “XVI” written across it. And, they quickly realized that those Roman numerals translate to 16, which is the number of postseason games that Bron-Bron and the Heat will have to win over the course of the next two months in order to be crowned NBA champions.

This is what he had to say about it…”You pay attention,” James told reporters after the game. “It’s just inspirational. I know this is the biggest part of the season, the second part of the season, so it’s just an inspiration for me.”

What do you think…hot mess or inspiration?
