PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas -

Heat star LeBron James is bringing back one of his pregame rituals.

LeBron confirmed on Wednesday that he will be bringing back his pregame chalk toss that stopped last season.

During his years with Cleveland and first season in Miami, LeBron would famously pump up the crowd, throw chalk into the air, and blow on his hands before tip-off.

James says that "my fans, they wanted it back. So I'm bringing it back."

LeBron and his teammates found other pregame routines to entertain the crowd last season with a series of pregame dunks that became hits on YouTube.

LeBron and the Heat will be looking for a three-peat starting on opening night Oct. 29 when they host the Chicago Bulls.
