Miami Heat forward LeBron James got an unexpected makeover during the fourth quarter of the NBA Finals game 6 Tuesday as his headband fell to the ground during a dunk.

James's staple headband has become something of an NBA inside joke as fans have witnessed how the player has moved it back throughout his career as he "attempts to hide a receding hairline."

But last night with 8:59 minutes left in the fourth quarter, Tim Duncan knocked the band off James's head during a dunk and he was forced to finish the game without the accessory.

Many fans and sports aficionados took to Twitter to point out how naked the player looked without his headband. Others simply dubbed the game -- the result of which forced game 7 -- the "LeBron Headband Game." Here are some of the comments:
