It looks like we have some outer space drama coming our way! ‘Space Jam 2’ might actually be happening– with LeBron James. Naturally, people are kinda flipping out about it, and not exactly with enthusiasm.
LeBron James‘ company, SpringHill Entertainment, has partnered with Warner Bros. Entertainment, it was announced on July 22. This would be big news as it is, however, it was revealed back in June that Warner Bros. had filed a trademark for Space Jam. Do we need to spell it out for ya? Yup, signs may be pointing to LeBron starring in the very anticipated sequel to the 1996 film which, iconically, starred Michael Jordan. You may or may not be surprised to hear, fans are freaking out, and many are not happy. We’ve compiled some of the best (and by best we mean worst) fan responses to the potential casting!
So LeBron will be in Space Jam 2…I have no idea who the fuck that is, GG on making that film anywhere near as popular as #1 with MJ.

If LeBron James is gonna be in Space Jam 2, then the refs better call the same amount of fouls he called when MJ was playing the Monstars!

I bet Lebron just joins the Monstars in “Space Jam 2” because he thinks it will give him the best chance at a title.
