Footage leaked of LeBron James and NBA pals on ‘Space Jam 2’ set

Production has begun in earnest on “Space Jam 2,” and footage and photos have leaked of LeBron James and the fellow NBA stars who are taking part in the hotly anticipated film getting to work.

TMZ Sports, perhaps unsurprisingly, is the media outlet behind the leaked details from production on “Space Jam 2.” In the images and video, James is seen on the court with new Los Angeles Lakers teammate Anthony Davis, Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green and the Portland Trail Blazers’ Damian Lillard, among others.

Interestingly, Klay Thompson — who suffered a torn ACL during the Warriors’ Game 6 elimination loss to the Toronto Raptors in the NBA Finals and is expected to undergo surgery this week — is shown getting in on the action in a limited capacity given he’s on crutches.

There has been no shortage of fanfare and buzz in recent days and weeks about “Space Jam 2,” as chatter has increased — some good, some bad — with production ramping up all over the Los Angeles area.

It will be quite a while until the project is fully realized, however, as the film’s tentative premiere date is slated for wide release on July 16, 2021.
