ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — One of the most iconic moments from the early part of LeBron James‘ NBA career came each game just before tip-off, when he would walk to the scorer’s table, fill his hands with talcum powder and heave it into the air. It was a move pioneered by Michael Jordan and Kevin Garnett, who would clap talcum at the scorer’s table.
Yet LeBron added height to the practice and dedicated himself early on, and it has become something of a signature move for him. He stopped doing it in 2011, and then brought it back in 2013, though he didn’t resume it with regularity.
But over the weekend, LeBron posted a clip from NBA 2K and wrote, “I swear I can’t wait for this moment again!! #TheLand #PowderFillsTheRoom #StriveForGreatness”
