Miami Heat fans caught a specific scene in LeBron James’ Space Jam trailer
Amongst all the scenes in the two-and-a-half minute trailer, Miami Heat fans’ eyebrows rose at a particular instance.
Of course, that is James dunking a basketball with the assist from character Lola Bunny, which paid homage to his infamous slam off a no-look pass from Dwyane Wade in a 2010 game against the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Heat’s official Twitter account caught onto that, and James responded with wink and shrug emojis.
In the film, James has to win a basketball game against an artificial intelligence algorithm Al-G Rhythm, played by actor Don Cheadle, to escape virtual reality with his on-screen son.
LeBron recruits the Looney Tunes to face off against Al-G Rhythms Goon Squad, featuring the likenesses of Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Klay Thompson and Diana Taurasi.
With the trailer dropping, that meant the usual LeBron James-Michael Jordan debate reemerged. This time, it will focus on which Space Jam film is better.
As is the case, everyone has their own opinion, and you can make yours once watching the film this summer.
