All during his basketball career, LeBron James has been compared to Michael Jordan.

Now it might happen off the court, too.

A report from Deadline on Friday indicated that Warner Bros. is looking to develop a sequel to "Space Jam" starring the Miami Heat forward.

As you might remember, it was Jordan who starred alongside Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes gang in the original "Space Jam" back in 1996. That movie is considered a classic among people of the appropriate generation.

James' style of play is certainly different than Jordan's, so perhaps he'll defeat the opponent — be they Monstars or otherwise — with a move other than the court-long stretch play Jordan made famous in the movie.

There's also no word as to whether Larry Johnson, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Muggsy Bogues and Shawn Bradley will be reprising their roles.
