THE MIAMI HEAT'S LeBron James got into the Halloween spirit by wearing a custom-made mouthguard sporting fangs while playing against the Magic on Friday night.
Of course, there's now talk of the NBA handing out a ridiculous fine for such non-sanctioned behavior. That doesn't sit well with us or Bobbie Quinn, whose Philadelphia-based company, Sport Guard Inc., manufactured the custom mouthguard.
"I'm a little distressed," Quinn said yesterday. "If [the mouthpiece] is not approved because it's flashy, well . . . I understand that. But it was especially designed for LeBron. It couldn't protect him any better."
Quinn said she was approached by Mike Mancias - James' athletic trainer - who wanted a top-quality mouthpiece for the All-Star forward.
