While the entire world was pretty skeptical when we learned that LeBron James would be making the transition into acting - like Michael Jordan and Shaquille O'Neal before him - Trainwreck sure doesn't seem to be your average Space Jam, or Kazaam!

If you've been keeping up with the NBA Finals (what happened last night, LeBron?), then you've likely seen a trailer for the new film directed by comedic mastermind Judd Apatow, featuring 2015's leading lady Amy Schumer, Bill Hader (or as Sarah Silverman affectionately calls him, Bill Jew Hater) and one Mr. LeBron James.

Like MJ before him, LeBron seems to play a fictionalized or exaggerated version of himself - at least that's what we assume. I mean, there's no way he's that playful and intrigued about relationship woes in real life, right?

For example, in a brand new trailer, LeBron asks Amy's character how she feels about Hader's character: "Is he your Cleveland?"


While hilarious, that's just hard to believe that the real LeBron would actually say that.

However, at least from the trailers, James seems quite natural in front of a camera, and even produces more than a few laughs. And with powerhouses like Judd Apatow and Amy Schumer vetting him, he's certainly learning comedy from the pro's.

If Trainwreck does succeed like the film world is anticipating, does the basketball king have a legitimate career in front of him as an actor?

If so, it would at least be one area where he'd indisputably be better than Jordan. And to him, that probably means the world.
