Tomorrow Lebron James and the Los Angeles Lakers will kick off their first round of playoff games in the NBA bubble against the Portland Trail Blazers. These days James is doing so much more than playing basketball. One of his passion projects is the Lebron James Family Foundation. This is located in Akron, Ohio, James’ hometown. This program does wonders for over 1,400 kids in the area with programs and mentors to help them succeed in school. It also provides four-year college scholarships to eligible students and runs the I Promise School.
The reason we are talking about this is because of one of his other projects, Space Jam: A New Legacy. This film is directed by Malcolm D. Lee and produced by Ryan Coogler, James, Duncan Henderson, and Maverick Carter. It stars James, Don Cheadle, and Sonequa Martin-Green. Currently, it’s set to release in July of 2021. Today via the foundation Twitter account, Carter gave everyone a look at James in a new Tune Squad jersey. You can check it out below!

I like the powder blue color with the navy Toon Squad text. I hate the off-centered, over-sized logo that takes up a large area on the jersey and shorts. A smaller version f the iconic Looney Tunes concentric circles would have been better. With that said I can’t wait to see what this new version has in store for us.
Space Jam: A New Legacy is a sequel to the 1996, Space Jam starring Michael Jordan. In this film, Jordan attempts to spark his Baseball career. But that gets put on hold when the Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes need help to win a basketball game against the Monstars. If they lose, they will be turned into theme park attractions at their new place called Moron Mountain. It’s a fun film that also includes an appearance or two from Bill Murray.
