The leaks were real: LeBron James is the latest celebrity to get a Fortnite ICON series skin. Lining up with the release of Space Jam 2, you can get cosmetics for King James, as well as alternate outfits from the movie.
Fortnite’s ICON series has brought prominent content creators and celebrities into the battle royale. From football stars Harry Kane and Neymar to big streamers like Ninja and TheGrefg, a number of top names have already dropped onto the island.
LeBron shouldn’t be a stranger to Fortnite — his son, Bronny James, is a part of FaZe Clan — and now he’s finally getting some skin in the game. King James is dropping into Fortnite with three different outfits, all featuring his signature Nike shoe, and some Space Jam spin.
