LeBron James tossed the talc chalk into the air during pre-game introductions before the Miami Heat faced the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans arena. Posted by Ben Golliver. There was a question all week hanging over LeBron James' return to Cleveland as a member of the Miami Heat: would he toss the chalk in the air prior to the game like he usually does? Former teammate Shaquille O'Neal wanted to know whether James would do it in front of so many angry fans. During the pre-game show on TNT, studio analyst Charles Barkley dared James to toss the powder. James said earlier in the week that he "probably" would and that it was his "ritual," and to no surprise, James did indeed throw up the talc prior to Thursday night's game. Here's the quick video of LeBron James tossing up the chalk in front of Cleveland Cavaliers fans. James was met with a chorus of boos from the entire Quicken Loans arena during his entry to the court and during player introductions, so it was no surprise that he was heavily booed during the chalk toss as well.
