LeBron James has a basketball double for Space Jam 2.

Why? Liability issues. If he gets injured playing basketball on a movie set it would be bad for him, the Lakers, the NBA and the movie production.

Nickelodeon actor Sheldon Bailey will be LeBron’s double. He has also doubled for Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard.

Are you disappointed knowing that LeBron won’t be actually playing basketball in the movie?
