While a rematch with the Warriors looms large for the Cavaliers should both teams advance to the NBA Finals, it’s now been confirmed that LeBron James will have additional adversaries to contend with in the form of Nerdlucks. James will follow his appearance in Train Wreck, with a return to the big screen in Space Jam 2.
THE ORIGINAL SPACE JAM
The original Space Jam, released in November of 1996, starred Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan at the height of his popularity. Critically panned (it has a 36% rating on Rotten Tomatoes), it did nicely at the box office bringing in $230 million in worldwide ticket receipts and finishing just outside the top ten of the highest grossing films for the year.
Aside from Jordan, Space Jam had lesser parts for fellow NBAers Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Muggsy Bogues, Larry Johnson, Larry Bird, Vlade Divac, Cedric Ceballos, Shawn Bradley and Danny Ainge. No word on which ballers might join King James in the sequel, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see his besties Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul make cameos.
