Fans Are Demanding to Know If LeBron James’s Real Wife Appears in ‘Space Jam’ 2


In the original 1996 Space Jam, NBA legend Michael Jordan plays himself. Continuing this tradition, in Space Jam: A New Legacy, LeBron James also plays himself. In both films, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and the rest of the Looney Tunes all play themselves (naturally). Knowing all of that, it makes sense that so many want to know if LeBron’s real wife and kids make an appearance in the new film as well.

LeBron’s family life is a big focus of the movie, after all: In the beginning, LeBron pushes his sons, Malik and Dom, to focus on basketball and ignore other hobbies in the interest of putting in more work on the court. Though Malik is receptive, Dom would rather program basketball-themed video games. Meanwhile, we meet LeBron’s on-screen wife, Kamiyah, who encourages the NBA champion to meet Dom where he is.

So, is LeBron’s real-life wife in Space Jam 2?

Like the idea of the film’s sentient, a sinister algorithm that can turn people into toons, the marriage in Space Jam: A New Legacy is pure fiction. Kamiyah is played by Sonequa Martin-Green, who you might recognize as Sasha from The Walking Dead or Michael Burnham from Star Trek: Discovery. In real life, she’s married to her Walking Dead co-star Kenric Green, who plays Scott.

Sonequa, of course, says she based her Space Jam character on her real-life counterpart. As she tells Den of Geek:

I just appreciate that you see very clearly that these two have a very beautiful partnership. They co-parent in their family really beautifully and successfully. I love that the success of the family couldn’t happen without Kamiyah. And it’s something that you don’t really see too much of in the original film, right? This family dynamic and the family itself being the root of the story is something new to this iteration. I just loved it. I was so moved by it and I really do believe that it’s paying homage to the real James family and Savannah, Queen James herself.

That Savannah is Savannah Brinson James, LeBron’s real-life wife of eight years, though they’ve known each other for a lot longer. Savannah and LeBron were high school sweethearts before he went on to NBA fame. The couple has three kids: LeBron James, Jr. (called Bronny), 16, Bryce Maximus James, 14, and Zhuri, 7.

So, are those really LeBron’s kids in Space Jam 2?

Again, they’re professional actors: Khris Davis of Atlanta plays Malik, Cedric Joe of Modern Family plays Dom and a newcomer, Harper Leigh Alexander, plays daughter Xosha. But they did try for lookalikes.

“Yes, we cast actors that kind of looked like my family,” LeBron revealed on the Smartless podcast. “My boys are 16 and 14. They only care about how cool that the person that’s playing them in the movie looks. ‘Dad, does he look like me? Is he wearing my hair style? Is he dressing the right way? I don’t want somebody playing me and not being me.’”

So there you have it. How Bronny, Bruce and Zhuri would do in algorithmically created cartoon basketball games where the rules are “loony” remains to be seen.
