It's City Slickers meets The Hangover meets Hoop Dreams

Variety is reporting that LeBron James is about to make a very, very bad decision...a Kazaam-sized decision. He's going to star in Fantasy Basketball Camp, which sadly does not mean a camp where centaurs and ogres are centers and pointguards. No, it's a stupid sounding, generic comedy about five guys who get to live out their fantasy by attending the LeBron James Adult Basketball Camp, which sounds like a camp for people with disabilities. Although Bron-Bron has proved he has some charisma in various commercials and one mediocre "SNL" hosting gig, he's got a long way to go before he can lay claim to the Citizen Kane of shitty basketball movies:

I don't know what it says about my life that this is the second Space Jam conversation I've had this week. Anyhoodle, producer Brian Grazer is quoted as saying he feels confident that LeBron can make the same easy transition that Eminem did in 8 Mile, you know, before Eminem launched his giant movie career, going on to star in...absolutely nothing. I'm not saying that I know it will be bad, but I know this will be bad. There is no level of sophistication you can shoehorn into a story that sounds like Wild Hogs, no matter how shoehorny you are.
