Klay Thompson may not be on an NBA court due to his injury, but that doesn't mean he isn't doing other basketball-related things. Klay Thompson will be part of LeBron James' Space Jam: A New Legacy, and will be starring with James and a host of other famous personalities in a movie that looks destined to be a cult classic. The original Space Jam is known all over the world: this one could follow in its footsteps.
Klay Thompson is one of the most recognizable athletes in the game: his presence in the movie only heightens the anticipation for the movie ahead of its release. LeBron James has recently put out a tweet thanking Klay Thompson as well as other athletes for participating in the movie. Klay Thompson has recently responded to the Tweet and claimed that it was an honor to be part of the movie and its legacy.
It will certainly be interesting seeing Klay Thompson as an actor. Klay Thompson is well-known for his sense of humor, and perhaps that part of his personality would be great for the screen. An opportunity to star in Space Jam seems amazing for most athletes: an opportunity to embed yourself into basketball culture itself.
Space Jam: A New Legacy is scheduled to release this summer, and there are a lot of hopes for it among fans. The new Space Jam seems like it will be a wonderful successor to the old with LeBron James as the face of the movie, as well as other prominent stars such as Damian Lillard and Klay Thompson partaking in the venture.
