LeBron has a little fun after Pacers win

2/15/2012

LeBron James joined NBA TV's "Fan Night" show following another lopsided win over the Indiana Pacers. With a set of headphones strangely pinning a towel over his head, LeBron fielded some questions about the Heat's performance on the back-to-back-to-back, their suffocating defense, Linsanity ... blah, blah, blah.

After a few minutes dancing around a most pressing issue, host Ernie Johnson finally cut to the chase (seen at the 4:18 mark) and asked LeBron the question on everyone's mind:

Are you thinking about shaving your head -- or as smooth-noggin'd Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal have dubbed it 'coming home'?

LeBron, who was obviously having some fun getting in on the joke, ripped the towel off his head, proudly pulling the veil to show his hairline in all its receding glory. He then gave his response to whether he was thinking about succumbing to the bald look like Shaq and Charles eventually did.

"Absolutely not," LeBron laughed. "'Come on home' is for Shaq, it's for Kenny, it's for Charles ... those three bald-headed stooges in studio."

Laughs all around.

"We're saving that for the three stooges. They're mad because you got more hair than them too, Ernie so don't get involved in that," LeBron joked.

"You know what, LeBron, I have a feeling I'll be coming home before you do," Johnson said.

LeBron just about lost it after that comment.
