The meme world is already full with Michael Jordan from The Last Dance living his “I took it personally” moments. And now, LeBron James added to the series when he described the storyline of his Space Jam flick.

Describing Chapter 1 of his movie, the 36-YO legend expressed, “Basically, what happened was, an evil algorithm took my son, I took that personally.”

Interestingly, the way King James narrated this, sitting on a sofa, opening his palms, and showing some character, matched perfectly to how MJ said the same in his documentary. Take a close look –

He recently admitted, “I think I’m gonna play for the Tune Squad this summer, instead.” Well, this is where Richard Jefferson’s comment, “I heard the bugs call LeBron, the wash king. I think Bron took that personally,” reinstates that Bron would rather fight the goon army than anyone else.

Plus, it would also allow LeBron some rest that he missed because of a crunched off-season.
