Reboot of the Day: Space Jam 2 with LeBron James was Kinda, but Not Really, Announced

LeBron James might be starring in a new Space Jam?
- -



Deadspin reported July 22 that Warner Bros. Studios and LeBron James had established some sort of partnership to develop possible movies and TV shows.

SpringHill Entertainment, the company James co-founded with Maverick Carter, already produces television shows and web content, and James has expressed his desire to branch out into the entertainment world. (His largely praised role in Trainwreck is just a start.) "To be able to partner with Warner Bros. will allow me to do some things I've always dreamed of," James said in a statement.



To them, and everyone else, that seems like a pretty clear indicator of a sequel to Space Jam

You want more proof? Fine.

Deadspin also pointed out that Warner Bros. filed a new trademark for 'Space Jam' last month.



Coincidence?

Whew, we are just in an orgy of 1990s renaissance here and it sure feels sticky. Between Xena Warrior Princess, a little Netflix thing called Fuller House, and some show called X Files or something, the entertainment industry just really wants you to feel the dread of mortality by showing how much everyone has aged.

That doesn't really apply to the cartoons in Space Jam or a rebooting with LeBron James but...



Already dreading the 2000s nostalgia train that will leave the station in about five years or so.

James and Gatorade were unable to negotiate a sponsorship early in the Miami Heat player's career, leading him to sign with their competitor Powerade. That makes the trolling all the sweeter! Meanwhile, the rest of the internet went in on James and his cramp:

Paul Ryan's senior poll from a yearbook at Joseph A. Craig High School in Janesville, Wisconsin shows a brown-nosing prom king who wasn't even considered the "Ryan" with the most potential -- Most Likely To Succeed went to Adam Ryan. It's okay Paul, this guy once struck out on Most Likely To Succeed and Most Athletic. Sure, it was 8th grade, but it counts.

Obligatory of the Day

Just hours after winning the NBA Championship (following the most ridiculous final three minutes of an NBA Finals game ever), LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh hit up an afterparty with LMFAO. Note LeBron is sporting a shirt with a pic of himself.

Despite the late-night celebration, LeBron is up and at 'em this morning, and it looks like reality is just beginning to sink in. Posted just now by @KingJames himself, with 32K+ retweets: "OMFG I think it just hit me, I'm a CHAMPION!! I AM a CHAMPION!!"

According to the Palm Beach Post's Heat Zone, James is the one who organized the photo and made it happen.

Earlier today, Dwyane Wade also tweeted a photo of himself in a hoodie along with the hashtag #trayvonmartin.
