LeBron James should stick in his first job and forget about the idea of leaving the court.
There is no chance for James to change his career from being an “activist athlete” to becoming an actor; this is after the review from his latest movie “Space Balls” resulted into a very hilarious and brutal one.
Critics were calling his movie absolute “garbage” and worst it’s underperforming from the box office to the point that it fell quickly before everyone recognizes it.
According to Breitbart report:
The left-wing China stooge LeBron James’ Space Jam: A New Legacy underperformed big-time with a projected $32 million opening in nearly 4,000 theaters.
For context, more than a quarter-century ago (26 years to be exact), Michael Jordan’s original Space Jam opened to $27.5 million in 1996 in only 2,650 theaters.
In 1996, Jordan’s Space Jam went on to a $90.4 million domestic gross. Next week, LeBron’s sequel will probably die a hard death and have troubling creeping to a $60 or $70 million gross.
How big of a disaster is that? Well, before promotion costs, this sucker cost $150 million to produce.
Aside from being popular as the “King LeBron” inside the court, a new name will be added to his legacy as the “King” of box office flops.
Soon, LeBron will be known as the “King” of box office flops.
And speaking of flops, the critics couldn’t hate this movie more if they tried.
The critics couldn’t hate this movie more if they tried, here’s a report from Western Journal:
Entertainment Weekly’s take was damning. Though reviewer Mary Sollosi noted that it “kind of works” as a testament to James’ pop-culture influence, as a piece of actual cinema, it’s a failure.
“Here’s the thing about basketball: It is extremely watchable,” Sollosi, an assistant features editor wrote. “Here’s the thing about Space Jam: A New Legacy: It’s not. You will be amazed by how little the basketball game resembles an actual sport, and how hard it is to sit through.”
An “abomination,” the New York Post put it.

The entertainment site the AV Club was not kind at all to the man sometimes known as “King James” (even if other big-name NBA stars disagree.)
As the sequel to 1996 “Space Jam,” which starred Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan, the new movie was supposed to be one more way for LeBron to chase Jordan’s legacy.
It didn’t work out so well.
“The star of a new Space Jam has big Air Jordans to fill, but only when it comes to star power; as an actor, His Airness was as flat and rigid as a backboard,” AV Club reviewer A.A. Dowd wrote.
This only means that wherever LeBron goes either in Hollywood or inside the basketball court he will always carry the same impact, carrying both into the bottom of the sewer in record-time.
