<i>Space Jam 2</i>: What Could Have Been
Huffington Post - 9 months
The sports world and the entertainment world combined to reach peak Twitter panic last week when Warner Brothers announced a partnership with LeBron James, who will be starring in Space Jam 2. The film is still in the early stages of development and won't be in theaters for a few more years, giving LeBron plenty of time to lose a couple more NBA Finals before filming starts.
Right now the plot is unknown, but we can assume it involves LeBron subtweeting fellow Looney Tunes members and questioning their effort, leading to a divided locker room that will only be saved by "LeBron's Secret Stuff" -- which turns out to be a liquefied version of Mario Chalmers.
What most people don't know, however, is that LeBron wasn't Warner Brothers first choice for the lead of their big budget sequel. In fact, he was pretty far down the list of NBA stars that were envisioned for the role.
