Recently, Sierra Canyon held a photoshoot for the basketball team. When Bronny was on the platform, he was caught doing the LeBron James chalk toss. This does come as a surprise because Bronny has tried to stay away from the shadow of LeBron James. He even changed his name from LeBron James Jr. to Bronny for the purpose. James himself admitted that he regrets giving Bronny his name. However, it is impossible to go unnoticed when your father is one of the greatest to play the game and such requests are bound to come up.

Coming to the chalk toss, just how long has LeBron James been doing it? The truth is that James has been doing the chalk toss ever since his rookie year in 2003. He would do the chalk toss to keep his hands dry, but it gained so much attention that it evolved into his pregame ritual over the years. Now, it is almost impossible to imagine LeBron get into the game without actually doing the chalk toss.
