This just in … LeBron James will wear his headband Thursday night. Repeating … LeBron James will wear his headband Thursday night.

It became a certified sensation when it came off at a crucial moment in Game 6 of the NBA Finals and his Miami Heat rallied to beat the San Antonio Spurs.

The headband quickly stormed social media and became a parody Twitter account — 107 parody Twitter accounts, to be precise. But don’t think that James is going to go without it in Game 7.

“I’m a little superstitious,” he told reporters Wednesday afternoon (via Ethan J. Skolnick of the Miami Herald). “If it gets knocked off, me and him will have a little discussion.”

Great. Now he’s going to talk to it.
