LeBron James Lakers

It’s going to be one of the biggest sports movies in recorded history. “Space Jam 2” starring three-time NBA champion LeBron James is set to be released in July of 2021.

At a time when we’re being reminded of Michael Jordan’s greatness during the current NBA work stoppage, King James is trying his hand in the movie business. It’s one of the reasons he decided to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers ahead of last season.

James has now taken to Instagram to tease about the movie with what looks to be the logo.

“Space Jam 2: A New Legacy.” That could not be more direct from James and Co.

One of the four producers for the sequel, James has a lot riding on this movie. The first one starring MJ and other legends of the 1990s has become a cult classic. He simply can’t afford to screw this one up.
