Brian Windhorst crushes dreams, saying, “no Space Jam 2 or Warner Bros project in works.”
Despite only crediting "LeBron sources,” many (including myself) bought the story. Many took to twitter. Many were pumped or pissed.
Both reactions had nothing to do with Space Jam 2. They had everything to do with LeBron James. He’s the most polarizing player in professional sports. That’s what happens when you call yourself “King James,” announce who you’re playing for on live TV, and take this photo:
You either have to love his game so much you forgive crap like this; or hate him with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength.
Regardless, LeBron’s Space Jam sequel doesn’t look like it’s happening, so we’ll have to create our own Tune Squad adventure. Is LeBron the villain? The hero? The basketball version of Walter White?
The choice is yours, and yours alone.
It’s past midnight. We see a boy shooting hoops in the dark. Another appears and challenges him to a game of one-on-one. The challenger absolutely punishes the other. Every shot the lesser child puts up is blocked. Every offensive possession ends with an easy layup.
If LeBron’s the punisher, play Ludacris’s “Move B——“ and click.
If LeBron’s the punished, play Lion King’s “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King” and click.
