The King has fallen.
On Thursday night, LeBron James was eliminated in the first round of the NBA Playoffs for the first time in his career as the Phoenix Suns went into Hollywood and destroyed the Los Angeles Lakers by a score of 113-100.
One would think that James, during his post-game presser, would vow to do whatever it takes to get better and prepare for the 2021-22 season and maybe even the Olympics, but that was not the case at all.
In fact, James told reporters that his offseason priority is to focus on rebooting the film originally made by Michael Jordan rather than playing in the Olympics.
That’s right, folks, LeBron James just that his No. 1 priority this offseason is making Space Jam 2.
LeBron James said in his post-game media address that his off-season priority is Space Jam 2 "instead of the Olympics."
Time away from the game naturally makes the most sense for James, 36, after the Lakers' faced the shortest offseason in league history.
