Mark Boyle (Mr. Boyle if you're reading, sorry). I have no idea how it started but it was hilarious to watch and imagine the stuff Reggie was saying.

I always laugh at that commercial because of how pathetic it is.

Exactly right, Nike get him to do it, kid doesn't have one bone of personality in him. He's got more of a fraudulent persona than Kobe.

It's a lot more arrogant than free throw rituals though. Him throwing the powder is like him saying "HEY EVERYONE PAY ATTENTION TO ME", which doesn't apply to free throws.

Don't mean to stir the pot, but LeBron doesn't get called out enough for being a copycat..considering how some other people get berated constantly for mimicking another player.

I don't know about the powder, but from the way he spreads his arm out when he does it, it's pretty clear that he has a messiah complex.
