Nike and LeBron James Debut The Six Chalk Edition for Christmas »

As LeBron James performed his pregame routine of tossing hand chalk into the air, the sellout crowd threw packets of white confetti aloft with him, creating a blizzard-like effect inside Quicken Loans Arena. The theatrical stunt was to promote James’ new Nike “Chalk” shoe, one of several variations he has worn this season. “That was unbelievable,” James said of the indoor snowstorm. “I will never forget that.” The Wizards intended to wear their blue road jerseys, which included a white holiday snowflake on the front. But James wanted to wear blue to match his new Nike “chalk” shoes and the Cavaliers sent an employee to Washington to fetch the Wizards’ white jerseys. The Nike Zoom LeBron VI Chalk Edition was on sale on X-Mas day (at Cavaliers Team Shop, and NikeStore) and it sold out almost instantly. Just like in the case of his Big Apple shoes fans wanted to get this special make up featuring a silhouette of Lebron in the “chalk pose” on tongue top and sockliner, and also spilled chalk screen-print at collar. More in-game photos after the jump…

In a generous, gift-giving mood, the Cleveland Cavaliers nearly handed a precious win to one of the NBA’s neediest teams. Down by seven points in the final minutes to woeful Washington and their home winning streak in serious jeopardy, the Cavaliers clamped down on defense, made their free throws and scored 11 straight points in the final 1:33 to beat the Wizards 93-89 Thursday night.
