However, a sequel to this sports comedy wouldn't be the first rumor of something like this happening. Just last February, fans went crazy when Deadline reported that a sequel was in fact in the works and LeBron James was set to take Jordan's spot.
It seems now that the likelihood of a sequel is becoming more realistic as Warner Bros. has released a statement that they are partnering with LeBron James for a "unprecedented agreement spanning all areas of content creation," and "the deal will see James' creative footprint touch all areas of the Studio, with plans for projects in television, film and original digital content." Sounds pretty legit to us, don't you think?
Fans were quick to comment on the announcement and took to Twitter to express how they felt about LeBron potentially taking over for Michael Jordan.
