LeBron James' headband will be in the starting lineup for Game 7 of the NBA Finals, probably.
"I'll probably start off with it, man, " James said of his most discussed accessory ahead of Game 7, via CBS Sports. "A little superstitious. If it gets knocked off, then me and him will have a discussion if he will return."
Based on the way James closed out Game 6 earlier this week, the San Antonio Spurs might want to take care not to knock it off. After losing the headband during a dunk with nine minutes remaining in regulation and the Miami Heat trailing by five points, James scored 10 points and assisted two other baskets over the remainder of the fourth quarter and in overtime.
WATCH: James Dominates Game 6 After Losing Headband
After his team avoided elimination with a 103-100 overtime win in Game 6, James downplayed the significance of the headband in his late surge.
"I guess the headband was the least of my worries at that point," James told reporters after the game, via The Associated Press.
Despite James' take on the relative insignificance of the headband, it was hardly the least talked about item during Game 6 and ahead of Game 7.

Of course, there are many who think that the headband talk is nonsense and that James can dominate regardless of the visibility of his hairline -- or anything else.
