The film, a sequel to Michael Jordan’s 1996 film “Space Jam,” is set to be released on July 16.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, James also talked about the plot of the film.
“It’s one of the biggest games, if not the biggest game, I’ve ever played in,” James said to EW. “The Goon Squad is probably the best team ever assembled in basketball history.”
“In my younger days, part of my thinking was ‘Space Jam’ was so good, how can I top this?'” he said. “There’s always going to be conversations about LeBron trying to do everything Michael [did]. But I’ve gotten older, and you know who you are. You know what you stand for.”
According to James, the plot involves himself and his onscreen son attempting to escape a virtual reality by winning a basketball game.MORE NEWS: Pedestrian Killed After Being Hit By 2 Cars In South LA; 3 Witnesses That Tried To Help Him Sought For Questioning
