I remember when Space Jam 2 was just a rumor, but as the years passed we started seeing this turn into a real thing. Lebron James will be the main character in the sequel, but fans also wanted to know who will be a part of the supporting cast?
Now we received news that along with the “King”, Space Jam 2 will have NBA stars Damian Lillard, Klay Thompson, Chris Paul, and Anthony Davis. WNBA stars include Diana Taurasi, Nneka Ogwumike, and Chiney Ogwumike according to Shams Charania on Twitter.
Sources: Space Jam 2, starring LeBron James, is expected to feature key roles for Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis and Klay Thompson and WNBA stars Diana Taurasi and Nneka Ogwumike. Several more NBA and WNBA players, including Chiney Ogwumike, are expected to play roles in film.

The movie will be directed by Terence Nance and Ryan Coogler who also created the Black Panther movie. Maybe Space Jam 2 will be dope after all. Will you be checking this one out when it finally hits theaters on July 16th, 2021?
