LeBron James dips his toes into the NFT game as he dishes out a couple free NFTs based on his movie, Space Jam: A New Legacy.
After rumors of Space Jam 2 potentially going into production for nearly a decade, LeBron James took it upon himself to bless the basketball community with another movie based around the sport. The movie will find the Lakers superstar team up with the Looney Tunes to help save his son from Al G-Rhythm as he battles it out with the Goon Squad.
In preparation for the release of this movie, LeBron James and the Space Jam: A New Legacy crew has decided to do a massive NFT drop. NFTs took over during the beginning of this year as many were investing thousands of dollars into the non-fungible token business to hopefully have them be worth more down the line.
NBA TopShot was one of the first to do pack drops quite frequently as the NFTs would feature in-game moments from NBA superstars. Moments such as LeBron James dunks went for over $300,000 while other cards featuring guys like Lamelo Ball were also placed in a similar category.

All of these tokens will be classified into 5 tiers which range from common to legendary. The three tiers in between as uncommon, rare, and epic. For comparison, there will be 3000 commons available while only 10 legendarys will be available.
