Space Jam 2: A New Legacy might not have lived up to the expectations that the one with Michael Jordan’s did. However, LeBron James still managed to break box office records and proved to his haters that he was no less. The concept of putting Looney toons next to a player as great as Michael Jordan must have sounded bizarre at first but we all know what a big hit it eventually became.

For many years there was talk about making a sequel and that too with Michael Jordan but never came to fruition. Instead, his rival and the man who is compared to MJ every step of the way, LeBron James took it upon himself to star with Bugs Bunny and the rest of the gang. However, this one was very different from the concept that MJ starred in.

It is about a father, who is LeBron, and his son’s relationship. And understanding each other until they get stuck in a world of cartoons and then Bron has to play basketball along with the Looney Toons. It also has appearances from other NBA players and included cartoons from other realms in the audience during the games.

Ceyair Wright was never a LeBron James supporter until he joined the Lakers and until they met

Bron’s haters eventually starting piling up after he joined the Cleveland Cavaliers. However, Wright’s reason for not supporting LeBron was different. In conversation with Cedric Joe, who plays Dom James, LeBron’s younger son, Wright said, “LeBron had been somebody that growing up being like, ‘Dang! This dude is always in the finals. I hope he loses.”

“And then eventually, he came to the Lakers. And I was like, ‘I hope he brings us a championship. Then I met him and I was like, ‘Wow! This dude is actually an amazing person… He’s super down to earth to be one of the world’s biggest celebrities.”

A football of USC himself, Ceyair revealed that Bron even taught him a lot of stuff. “He taught me a lot of things. Especially with me being an athlete. The number one thing he would preach a lot was taking care of your body, like sleeping and eating right.”

Practice what you preach is something Bron doesn’t need to be taught. He is one of the fittest players in the NBA despite being 36 years old and is passing on his wisdom to the next generation athlete. LeBron has never left the opportunity to help out others, and his co-star saw it too.
