Space Jam 2: LeBron James Almost Got ‘Game of Thrones’ Armor

Space Jam 2 LeBron James Almost Got 'Game of Thrones' Armo

Space Jam: A New Legacy came full of references and easter eggs, and one of them almost brought Game of Thrones into focus, involving LeBron James.

The American basketball star almost wore an armor worthy of the greatest warriors of Westeros, in the best Sandor Clegane the Hound style. There is a photo of him in the suit to prove that the idea existed.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, costume designer Melissa Bruning produced a Game of Thrones suit of armor for LeBron James, who even did promotional photos with it on.

Unfortunately, the scenes where he would wear the costume were cut from the film, something Bruning herself was very sorry for, as the armor was very well crafted and really looks like it came out of the series.

Several references to Warner and HBO films appear in Space Jam: A New Legacy. This involves movie classics such as The Matrix and others, even DC heroes such as Batman.

Some dragons can also be seen, proving that Game of Thrones has not been totally forgotten.
