LeBron James now shoots with teammates about an hour before the game and he has apparently stopped doing the chalk toss.

Both items — the pregame shooting and non-chalk tossing — are part of a slew of changes James made last week. They worked.

The chalk toss was one more thing that put James on a different level from his teammates. That may not be why he dumped it — there was no chalk toss prior to at least the last two games — but the result is another in which James can lead by example.
