While there have been a lot of negative reviews about LeBron James' Space Jam: A New Legacy movie, the Los Angeles Lakers star found one big supporter in his former nemesis and teammate Lance Stephenson.
Stephenson did not only appreciate the message that the film sends, but he also said the Lakers forward did a “good job” in acting considering how hard it is for a basketball player to transition to such a role.
“I think he [LeBron] did a good job. [There's] very good messages in the movie. I had a good time, my kids definitely had a good time. I think he did a good job. It's tough for a basketball player to act, but for him to show his personality and get out there and be an actor, playing right. I mean I give it up to him: that's not easy,” Stephenson explained on the Posted Up with Chris Haynes podcast.
He also noted how hard it is to do so many takes just to fulfill one scene.
LeBron James will certainly appreciate the message from Lance Stephenson, especially the fact that his kids like it. After all, it was made for kids anyway and the purpose of the film is purely to entertain.
It's also a nice support amid the slew of haters criticizing the film. For what it's worth, the Lakers leader recently sent a message to his haters after Space Jam: A New Legacy exceeded sales expectations in its opening weekend, even beating Black Widow.
Hi Haters! 😁 https://t.co/ayPGnBZGQU
