LeBron James destroys Granny in new Space Jam trailer
The second trailer for Space Jam: A New Legacy has surfaced, and it features a hilarious clip of Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James chastising Granny for having a martini at halftime of the big game.
The very end of the trailer features Daffy Duck saying “We need a boost” and LeBron responding with “C’mon man, Granny’s out here having a martini at halftime.” Granny hilariously responds with “haters gonna hate.”

The film features all the old Loony Tunes pals from the original Space Jam, which starred Michael Jordan and was released back in 1996. This time, the Lakers superstar takes center stage as the lead actor.
The premise of the film involves LeBron’s son being taken, with “King James” then having to win an epic basketball game to ensure both his family’s and the Tunes’ survival.
This latest trailer features some pretty interesting details. The first is Turner personality and Emmy Award-winning host Ernie Johnson, who apparently will serve as the play-by-play guy for the big game. Secondly, attentive music folks might recognize rapper Lil Uzi Vert’s voice on the track in the background.
James has been promoting the film for weeks now, wearing the film’s merchandise on Lakers road trips and posting tweets alluding to the premise of the film. Phoenix Suns forward Jae Crowder even trolled James for said tweet after Phoenix beat the Lakers in the first round of the playoffs.
LeBron can look forward to the release of the film on July 13, but he will undoubtedly be putting in on-court work in the hopes of delivering the Lakers another championship next season.
