LeBron James says he has not done away with chalk toss

Tuesday December 2nd, 2014

The Cleveland Cavaliers seem to have turned around their fortunes with a three-game winning streak following four consecutive losses, and some have pointed out that the wins have come following a new pregame regimen from LeBron James.

In the three-game streak, Cleveland.com reports LeBron has begun shooting around about an hour before tipoff, and has nixed his much ballyhooed return to the pregame chalk toss, or so it seemed.

When asked about getting rid of the pregame ritual James was surprised to hear it had been abandoned.

Perhaps there is more involved in the Cavs turnaround than just not throwing some dust in the air.
