LeBron bringing back pregame powder toss


Posted Oct 2, 2013 2:17 PM

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) -- LeBron James is bringing back the pregame powder.

The Miami Heat star says he's decided to resume his one-time tradition of tossing powder into the air just before the start of games. He's depicted doing exactly that on the cover of the NBA 2K14 video game that was released this week, that image almost serving as a teaser of what was to come this season.

James got away from the pregame powder salute a couple of seasons ago. He announced through social media that it was coming back to his pregame routine, and he offered a simple explanation as to why that's the case at Heat training camp Wednesday.

James says that "my fans, they wanted it back. So I'm bringing it back."
