LeBron James is one of the most eminent NBA players in the world, and his reach extends beyond the scope of basketball.
James could be coming to the popular video game Fortnite as the game’s next Icon Series skin.
Fortnite launched the Icon Series collection with popular streamer Ninja and followed suit with various popular icons.
Recording artist Travis Scott received a skin and a special event where he performed songs in-game.
Fortnite has also done skins for famous soccer players such as Neymar from Brazil; Harry Kane of England and Marco Reus of Germany joined the collection for the UEFA European Championship.

Images of James’ appearance in the game have not been discovered just yet, but the rumored date for his arrival is July 14.
That would make sense given “Space Jam: A New Legacy” releases July 16, which could be a way to promote James and the movie’s release.
Fortnite also just released a skin for the Marvel character Loki since it recently started airing on Disney+, so the rumors for James seem to be accurate.
Fortnite has not yet officially announced James’ arrival, plus additional in-game cosmetics that usually come with the skin drop.
