LeBron James Bringing Back Powder Toss

It’s been a few years since we last saw the power toss, but LeBron James is bringing it back. How do we know?

Because Hashtags.

What y’all been on tonight!?! Cause this what I’m on. I remember playing Bulls vs Blazers and Double Dribble like these are the best(which they were at the time). Crazy to me that I’m on the cover of a video game man! #NBA2K14 #CoverBoy #RealestHoopGame #StriveForGreatness #PowderTossComingBackToAnArenaNearYou

That was thumbed under a picture James posted of what-one-would-assume-to-be-his copy of NBA 2K14, of which he graces the cover of in all of his powder tossing glory.

Per Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com:

“It’s just me,” James said after the Miami Heat’s practice Wednesday at the Atlantis Resort. “I love my fans and they wanted it back. They wanted me to do it, so it’s back.”

James was noticeably more relaxed during media day. With two titles notched on his belt, it seems James is taking yet another step away from the villain mentality he had in year one with the Miami Heat.

Part of that is getting back to having fun, and getting back to a shameless waste of perfectly good chalk.
