LeBron James’ hairline is back in the headlines.
During a game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Utah Jazz Saturday night, teammate Anthony Davis pointed out James' hairline seemed to be slipping, NBC Sports reported.
In a video from the game, Davis is seen pointing at James’ hairline trying to indicate that he should fix his headband before people notice.
However, it was all over once Twitter got ahold of the tape.

James’ hair has appeared to be thinning for at least five years, noted Larry Brown Sports. In 2011, the athlete joked on Twitter that he's had dreams of more youthful days before his hair loss, Larry Brown Sports reported.
“Had a dream my hairline was back!” James tweeted. “Woke up and went to [the] bathroom, turned on [the] light slowly. Same ol story. Damn! Lol #wishfulthinking.”
Despite making jokes about his hairline, James continues to show up with a fresh hairline every basketball season, NBC sports blogger Dane Delgado wrote.
Delgado said James should just go bald. He may be surprised by the results.
“I’m not sure what the big deal is here for LeBron. He seems to have a good enough head shape, and renderings people have done of him with the full-on Michael Jordan shaved look are pretty reasonable,” he wrote. “He’s even got connected earlobes, which is something that helps bald dudes look a little bit better.”
Some fans on Twitter acknowledged that Davis is a “real one” for helping his teammate out. Other fans noted the awkwardness of pointing when their friends have food in their teeth or their clothes are a mess.
Next time, though, maybe Davis should be a little slicker when pointing it out.
