LeBron James unveiled his sick new LeBron 12 shoes at a private Nike event yesterday.
But an even bigger story was his return — and no, I’m not talking about the one back to Cleveland.
Spectators watching in the audience, and now millions of people on Twitter, noticed something extra special about King James on this momentous occasion.
His once-receding, shameful and butt-of-every-joke hairline is gone, and his natural follicle count has finally restored itself to that of his glorious high school days!

It’s about damn time he got his hair fixed and he didn’t even have to go with Carlos Boozer’s spray-on route.
Considering he’s worth an estimated $270 million, and he was unveiling the 12th edition of his own damn shoe line, it’s only fitting he has the hairline to match his swag.
LeBron will return as a member of the Cavaliers with more confidence than ever, and it starts with that beautiful head of hair.
What do you think he’s more concerned about, his sneakers or that cut?!
This is, of course, a major blow to all of you LeBron haters out there. Now that he has a pair of rings and his hair fully in tact, what do you really have left to say about him?
All of that’s over, and the king is officially untouchable. But for one last time, let us reflect on the cloudier days when his hairline was nearly touching the back of his neck.
Check out some of our favorite memes that will be forever missed:
It’s the one thing Carmelo still had on LeBron.
Who’s he going to make fun of now, though?
The missing hairline reports can stop now.
And refs will have no choice but to respect his new game.
We truly believed that LeBron was beginning to accept his fate, though.
He was even starting a new trend, whether he knew it or not.
It’s a good thing he took care of this sooner rather than later.
Congrats, LeBron: Two things you’ll never have to deal with again.
