LeBron had a very difficult time recruiting NBA stars to join him in Space Jam 2.
A number of NBA stars, including Curry, reportedly turned down the opportunity to be in the film.
The Warriors star admits he and producer Ryan Coogler discussed it, but they ultimately couldn’t make it work.
Via NY Times:
“I know LeBron and Ryan Coogler are going to be doing amazing things. It’s going to be awesome,” Curry told The New York Times’ Sopan Deb. “Part of it was in terms of things that I had going on. It was just the timing, to be honest. Not being able to commit. And I know Ryan really well. We had a lot of conversations about it.”
Coogler, an Oakland native, is a huge Warriors fan, making it difficult for Steph to say no to the project.
“He’s at every playoff game,” Curry said, adding, “Obviously, that’s hard to turn down. The guy does amazing work.”
Steph and LeBron’s brand don’t mix well. There can only be one alpha dog, and Steph isn’t going to be LeBron’s second in command.
That’s more a role for Klay Thompson.
