LeBron James is one of the worst people in America. He talks about topics he doesn’t understand (the United States of America), lies about the police, and gets teammates traded and coaches fired. Furthermore, he’s an awful actor. LeBron’s new Space Jam film is already in the running for the worst movie of all time. It’s so bad even film critics who share LeBron’s worldview say the movie sucks that much.
To hit LeBron where it hurts, the original director of Space Jam, Joe Pytka, also admitted he has probably never seen a film this atrocious.
Pytka said it took him five different viewings to make it through the film’s two-hour running time. Give Pytka credit, by the way. That’s dedication.
“The truth is that LeBron ain’t Michael,” Pytka adds.
Thanks, Joe. Now compare Joe Biden to Abraham Lincoln while you are at it.
“I’ve worked with three people that have this magical quality that they affect people no matter what; they see them and some light goes on,” Pytka goes on, via Stu Burguiere.
“Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson, and Madonna. All three have this quality where people connect immediately without understanding anything about them. And nobody else has that quality. LeBron is a fantastic basketball player, he’s a top-20 basketball player of all time. He is not Michael. Maybe they should call it something else. They should not call it Space Jam 2, or whatever. It should be another movie. It’s not Space Jam. Space Jam is Michael Jordan. No matter how much LeBron wants to be a great player — and he is a great player — he’s not Michael Jordan. There will never be another Michael Jordan.”
Top-20 basketball player of all time. So good.
To make the situation worse, LeBron’s boss Chairman Xi has yet to allow the movie to air in China, costing LeBron a lot of money. Without China, Space Jam 2 is likely to lose several hundred million dollars. Clay Travis noted on Twitter that WarnerBros spent $200 million to make and market Space Jam 2 but projects to earn only $60-70 million without a release in China.
That isn’t good.
2021 just hasn’t been LeBron’s year. Here’s how it looks thus far:
- Bounced in the first round of the NBA postseason
- Hurt his ankle so bad that he’ll never be the same
- Endangered the life of a heroic police officer
- Made a terrible movie
- Failed to get Space Jam 2 released in China, despite his allegiance to Xi
- Realized he’ll never be Jordan
- Lost the Face of the NBA title to Giannis Antetokounmpo.
You hate to see it.
