It's time to slam, boys and girls! Basketball superstar aka "The King" himself Lebron James just confirmed that the ball's already rolling for the Looney Tunes flick. "Man this really just hit me! I’m really shooting Space Jam 2!! This is so surreal and doesn’t even make sense to me," a part of his tweet wrote.
