Giannis has no interest in teaming up with Lebron James. The 2018-2019 MVP candidate reportedly walked away from a role in James’ Space Jam sequel.
According to ESPN.com’s Malika Andrews, the Greek Freak was asked to participate in the film—but he declined.
“I don’t like being Hollywood,” Antetokounmpo told Andrews. “I don’t like all this extra drama. I am just going to try to be me.”
James has been having a hard time finding NBA stars to join the film according to Brain Windorst.
“Some of the top guys he wants to come and be with him in the movie. … ‘You put me in the movie where you’re the star, I’m gonna be the one you’re dunking on,'” Windhorst
Space Jam 2 will hit theaters on July 16th, 2021.
