Lebron James Is Going To Be A Playable Character In Fortnite

Is this cap or nah?

Initially, I thought this was just a troll, but this is coming from a well-known Fortnite leaker, so it might be accurate.

This is where I'm confused - previously, Fortnite has teamed up with the NFL and then the NBA to release team jerseys as playable skins.

The "In The Paint" Set featured 31 uniforms, including all 30 NBA teams. So technically, this skin was already in Fortnite if you changed the jersey to Lakers and number to 23 (and next year 6?). 

However, if Lebron is getting his own "Icon Skin Series," it would have to be something similar to Travis Scott or Ninja where it is indisputably Lebron. Face adjustment, last name on the jersey, shooting sleeve, the whole nine yards. 

Currently 8 individuals have their own "Icon Series Skin." These include Ninja, Marshmello, Travis Scott, Astro Jack, Loserfruit, Lachlan, Grefg, and Lazarbeam 

Lebron will be lucky number 9 IF this leaks holds true.

This got me thinking - Are we going to see a Fortnite x Space Jam 2 crossover in the near future!? Space Jam 2 is set to release on July 16th….Seems like the timing may perfectly align with the skin dropping… 

So you're telling me that Lebron can no spoilers not only beat an alien race in basketball, but can also box you like a fish in Fortnite?? Seems OP to me.
