The people behind the video game NBA 2K14 tell TMZ ... they weren't trying to be haters when they receded LeBron James' hairline on his digital avatar -- they're just keepin' it real. 

In case you haven't seen the images, 2K14 LeBron is WAYYYYY balder than 2K13 LeBron ... and conspiracy theorists are suggesting the designers are anti-LBJ fans who were just trying to troll the guy.

But we spoke with a rep for the company behind the game ... who tells us the digital art is simply imitating real life -- "We strive for current realism with all our players."

LeBron now joins the ranks of other legendary bald video characters ... including King Hippo, Dhalsim, the guy from Hitman, Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man and Kirby.

Congrats.

Why write 2014 as 2K14? I mean really? It's the same number of characters.
