“Space Jam: A New Legacy” performed well at the box office and on HBO Max over the weekend. At the end of the day the only thing the higher-ups care about is money, not producing watchable content.
That being said, far-left
racist radical LeBron James’ new film was widely panned as a horrible sequel to the Michael Jordan-led effort.
Why did the long-awaited follow-up to Michael Jordan’s 1996 hybrid animated/live-action sports comedy, Space Jam 2 open to such relatively poor reviews? Space Jam: A New Legacy released simultaneously on HBO Max and theaters with NBA legend LeBron James teaming up with the Looney Tunes, this time to take on Al-G Rhythm (Don Cheadle) and his villainous coded basketball players in the virtual ServerVerse.
Space Jam: A New Legacy: is projected to gross a significant amount of money at the box office, but the actual critic and audience consensus of the movie has been poor. While ESPN has unsurprisingly given Space Jam 2 a glorious review, most reputable movie critics and outlets have agreed the movie is a major disappointment. So far, the sequel holds a rotten 32 percent critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a 3.7/10 rating on IMDb. Alternatively, Space Jam holds slightly better ratings on Rotten Tomatoes at 44 percent, though was given an exemplary 3.5/4 stars by legendary film critic Roger Ebert.
Most of the poor reviews have been quick to point out Space Jam: A New Legacy’s lack of fun humor and earnest light-heartedness, overt promotion of Warner Bros. property, disappointment with celebrity and NBA roles, and the long two-hour runtime compared to Space Jam’s 87 minutes. Aside from a few outliers, these reviews back up why Space Jam: A New Legacy was a disappointment after all of the movie’s hype and a quarter-century wait.
James is very politically active (despite not knowing what he’s talking about), having campaigned for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and supporting Joe Biden over President Trump in 2020. LeBron may even consider a run for office one day, himself.
FYI: I heard today from someone close to LeBron who said he HAS seriously considered running for President of the United States some day. "It's a plan of his but not yet a goal," the source said.

Or, one could look at the fact that the report came from Skip Bayless, someone given to hyperbole and attention grabbing statements, and not take it seriously at all. Though, one imagines James would have the popularity and financial backing to make a better run at the presidency than half the current Democratic field, should he decide to do so.
If you have ever listened to James speak, you’ll quickly deduce that he isn’t a very smart guy. Of course, the Los Angeles Lakers star has earned more money beyond his wildest dreams playing a child’s game, yet still has bad things to say about his country on a relatively regular basis.
