LeBron “King” James replaces Michael Jordan from 1996 for this go-around, as King and the Looney Tunes characters – including Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Lola Bunny and more – have to suit up again to play basketball against another set of the challenging villains … this time trapped in the internet rather than outer space. The leader of the villain team is Al-G-Rhythm (Don Cheadle), who kidnaps LeBron’s fictional son Dom (Cedric Joe) as enticement.
