The prospect of LeBron James releasing the sequel for Michael Jordan’s highly popular Space Jam has Anthony Davis very excited.
The 4-time champion is well and truly in the GOAT debate with MJ, now that he’s won with 3 different teams. LeBron means to the NBA today what Jordan was in the 90s – the transcendent star of the league. People who don’t even watch basketball know LeBron today.
Jordan, who was the most marketed athlete in the world at his peak, achieved even more stardom with the 1996 release of Space Jam. Teaming up with the Looney Tunes squad to take on the ‘Monstars’ brought him into every American household.

On his appearance on Da Windy City podcast, Davis sounded really excited about the Space Jam sequel.
“He deserves it. It’s something that he always wanted since there’s been talks of a new Space Jam and he finally got it. To even be in the discussion with MJ, who is Bron’s favorite player, to follow in his footsteps and have his version of Space Jam is pretty dope.”
LeBron has previously featured in a cameo role on the movie ‘Trainwreck’. The Lakers star had a really humorous part in the movie, acting as himself. If that was any indication, Space Jam 2 is going to be a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
