LeBron James has unveiled a sneak peak at the uniform he'll be wearing in the Space Jam sequel.

The basketball legend uploaded a video onto social media showing him advance towards the camera in the light blue jersey and matching shorts.
With 'Tune Squad' emblazoned on the front, the circles relating to Looney Tunes can be seen on one side.
Sadly, that's all we get to see, but it's enough to get fans across the world very excited about the movie, which is scheduled for release in America next year.
It's interesting considering earlier this year Nike revealed a new range which included uniforms for the Tune Squad and Monstars, which many assumed would be the kit worn in the movie. However, it now looks like the basketball stars will be kitted out in the more colourful jerseys LeBron has teased.

The new blue uniform certainly has divided people on social media.
One user wrote: "Oh my that jersey is fire."
Another added: "I think that teal colour too much. Maybe a black, blue or white. Right?"
A third said: "The new look is kinda loud. Not sure how I feel."
LeBron revealed earlier this year that while the coronavirus pandemic has caused many entertainment projects to be put on hold or cancelled, Space Jam: A New Legacy is still on schedule.
Filming had already started last summer with reports that the cast and crew would begin shooting in June 2019, with many speculating that the time frame would give everyone a three-month period to wrap things up before NBA training camps opened again for the 2019-2020 season - and, of course, before star LeBron would have to return to his day job playing for the Los Angeles Lakers.
Speaking at the NBA All-Star Weekend in Charlotte, LeBron told a cheering crowd: "I'm gonna be in Space Jam 2. We start filming that this summer."
No one knows for sure how similar the storyline will be to the original, released in 1996 and starring Michael Jordan, but the fact there are uniforms for the two teams we can assume there's going to be a basketball match... spoiler alert.
'The King' won't be the only LA Lakers' star in the film as he's set to be joined by Anthony Davis while fellow basketball players Damian Lillard, Klay Thompson, Chris Paul and Diana Taurasi will also star.
Don Cheadle is another confirmed for the cast but there's no word on what role he'll play in the movie, with the man who played War Machine saying: "No, I'm not playing myself. I actually can't tell you what I'm playing."
