From my starting days of watching Jordan play in 1993, to KG, and now Lebron, I've found this action EXTREMELY DISRESPECTFUL.

How the hell is this cool or entertaining? You're putting debris in the orfice holes of [possibly] unwilling participants, even though they are smiling while inhaling dust particles.

Just go out there and play the game, it's not about you..

Its just his pre-game routine. KG did it before him.

KG didn't throw it into the air. He put it in his palms and ran them against each other so it actually stays on his hands. I don't know why Lebron wastes it and throws it in the air. Unless he puts some on his hands and then throws some away

Because its theatrical and gets the crowd hyped. And it clearly works.

It's the gimmick Nike had him do from day one.

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