Lakers star LeBron James’ ‘Space Jam 2’ stats compared to Michael Jordan’s

Lakers, LeBron James, Michael Jordan, Space Jam

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James has just released his “Space Jam: A New Legacy” film, and sure enough, tons of content have already been created about it–including comparisons to Michael Jordan’s first “Space Jam.”

One of the more interesting questions about the films is who has scored more between LeBron and MJ in their movies. Fortunately, Stat Muse gave fans exactly the answer to that.

Apparently, for those who missed the first “Space Jam” or just didn’t bother to count points, Jordan actually scored 44 points on 22-of-22 shooting from the field. That is a 200 percent true shooting rate!

As for LeBron, he went 4-of-5 (SPOILER ALERT!), though the Lakers forward did have one rebound and one assist. Both MJ and LBJ also banked the game-winners in their respective flicks.

Now, this is certainly a bad look for LeBron James. After all, how can he miss a shot in a game against cartoon characters, right? MJ would never–and he didn’t.

Then again, Michael Jordan’s numbers are just absurd.

For what it’s worth, maybe the Lakers star deserves some style points and for trying to involve his teammates?

LeBron James certainly won’t mind the gap in scores, though. While his movie has had its fair share of haters, it can still be called a resounding success after its $32 million sales in its opening weekend.
