LeBron James ‘Wishes’ He Could Make Space Jam 2

We don’t yet know if LeBron James will win as many Championships as Michael Jordan did, but we do know that he’ll never do one thing MJ managed: starring in a movie like Space Jam. Well, err, at least we thought we knew that much, until Bron went and tweeted that he’d love to make a Space Jam 2. OK then! More via CSNPhilly: ”LeBron James is constantly being compared to Michael Jordan. And if James’ dreams come true, you’ll be able to compare their acting skills on top of everything else. On Sunday, James was fielding questions from his Twitter followers, when one asked if the three-time MVP loved the movie, Space Jam. James offered this reply: ‘I love that movie. Wish I could do Space Jam 2!’ Jordan starred in the 1996 film, which grossed more $230 million internationally, according to Box Office Mojo.”

    Space Jam is a classic, movie should’ve won at least 5 Oscars.

    Hasheem Thabeet could be that tall, goofy blue Monstar from the first movie

  • Zabbah

    If it does better than the first one in the box office it’ll help somewhat on the endless debate of who was greater.

  • Drig

    This new comment system looks wack lol. But as long as the comments pop up nice and fast, I’m gonna be happy :)

  • justin05

    KD already is starring in Space Jam 2 lol. Hasn’t Lebron seen the trailer for thunderstruck?

  • nbk

    i’m just excited about the comment system. i realize there will be hiccups, hope everyone is patient. —- and Space Jam 2? they asked me to be in it as a real life monstar.

  • Yesse

    They already did, it’s called Thunderstruck.

  • shutup

    The article says 19 comments but actually only has 5, like NBK said some hiccups but I’m sure it will all iron itself out.

    I loved space jam when it came out I swear I watched it 1000 times which was a pain in theass when you had to rewind it in your VCR every single time!! LOL

  • ShooterMcGavin

    I don’t remember MJ having a huge inferiority complex like BronBron. Jordan didn’t go around constantly trying to “be like Magic” or “be like Bird”. He wanted to be himself, to make himself an icon. I wish Lebron would leave Michael alone already, and just do King James.

  • nbk

    by saying he wants to be in Space Jam 2 he is constantly trying to be like Michael Jordan? really? — And ”
    I wish Lebron would leave Michael alone already” – does he bother him or something? are you MJ’s friend?

  • ShooterMcGavin

    Wow, somebody’s butt appears to be hurting. As if Lebron hasn’t been saying from day one that he’ll be better than Mike. As if Lebron didn’t wear the number 23 when he came into the league. As if BronBron didn’t (erroneously) claim that he’ll win one more title than MJ. As if Lebron (and his butt-hurt fans) didn’t spend the summer claiming his 2012 was better than Mike’s 1992. Space Jam 2 fantasies are only the newest development in Lebron’s pathetic pattern of Jordan-envy.

  • corn

    Space Jam 3 for LBJ… Space Jam 2 is for Kobe

  • Geahhh

    Filming starts 2013

  • nbk

    first of all, LOL at you thinking everything a guy does throughout his career somehow revolves around MIchael Jordan….now, onto the ignorant nature of your words, he hasn’t said once he’d be better than Jordan. — in fact, when he changed his number from 23 to 6, he said he picked 23 when he was a kid to honor his favorite player all-time, but then he realized that Jordan is the GOAT, and nobody should be allowed to wear his number (which doesn’t sound like something, someone who is saying they will be better would say) – and nobody said this year for LeBron was better than Jordan’s 1992 year. Nobody respectable that is. And you, considering, the incredibly ignorant comment i am replying too, aren’t very respectable either.

    Lebron would walk over to the monstars when he realises his team isnt good enough

  • bike

    LeBron should forget Space Jam and do something unique. Like star in an adult French flick and call it LeJohn.

  • bigA

    What do you know about inferiority complexes? Isn’t the inability to lose part of an inferiority complex. I guess I should get some of that complex to thirst for blood on the court even more.

  • Jerome

    Everyone wants to be like Mike. It’s like Mr. Toads wild ride that way.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    if LeBron wanted to be “like Mike” he’d play “like Kobe”

  • The Seed

    Lebron in Space Jam 2 would be a totally disrespectful to MJ. MJ shot in Space Jam, Lebron could NOT have any shooting scenes. The moonstars could trade for Bron, because the first half didn’t go Lebron’s way. Then Lebron would ask for more help and give the money back to chairty to disguise he is a traitor. Lebron is more like a Kazaam star. I could see Lebron with a genie outfit on, stating he does not like the pressure of wearing the suit all the time, so he needs to trade it for a wizard suit with wizard friends. Or Lebron could star as Benedict Arnold who was an American general who served the cause of the
    American Revolution until he decided to shift his allegiance to the Heat. Lebron could redo the I am taking my talents to the British.

    When Lebron answers 15-20 questions on twitter for fans, it is a national story. Do people now realize why Nike wants to sell his shoes for 300 dollars? Well maybe its because he receives the most marketing for some of the most trivial things positive or negative (Mostly negative) I have seen in the history of sports marketing? This should be a non-story. Dude was just answering fan questions. Space Jam… lebron should just make a different movie so stupid people can stop thinking he’s trying to be jordan.

  • JustMyThoughts

    Media wil take anything and run with it smh always having to critique his every move and tweet someone also asked where his hairline went he jokingly said “I don’t know, but if you find it let me know, we’ll go pick it up.” that would have made a better story than this thats for sure

  • jjbfresh

    He should start in “like mike 2″

  • Cameron
