    Twitter Is Joking About "Space Jam: A New Legacy" After LeBron James' Bunny Tweet

    The Goon Squad better watch out.

    The NBA playoffs are closing in fast, but that's not stopping LeBron James from tweeting his mind.

    This morning, LeBron shared the following sentiment with his followers:

    It’s all fun and games until the 🐰 got the gun! πŸ˜‘πŸ˜€πŸ˜‘πŸ˜€πŸ‘‘

    Of course, we all know the expression (right?): "Ain't no fun when the rabbit got the gun." It's another way of saying, "It isn't fun when the tables have turned." Just look at this little menace to society:

    Safe to say the people of Twitter had a field day with James' tweet. He really set himself up for it, since he'll be playing basketball alongside Bugs Bunny in Space Jam 2: A New Legacy.

    Check out some of the best tweets reacting to James:

    @KingJames ??? What tf going on in space jam 2

    I mean, if the rabbit emoji did translate to "Bugs Bunny," then the Goon Squad is in a lot of trouble.

    @KingJames Space Jam 2 just got real dark.

    Apparently he's trading in the catchphrase "What's up, Doc?" for "Say hello to my little friend."

    Maybe he's spoiling the ultimate heel turn in cinema history from a desperate Bugs Bunny. *Movie trailer voice* "How far will one bunny go..."

    While some are worried about Space Jam, others are more concerned about the Lakers star's injuries this season. Los Angeles fans want no part of the play-in games to make the playoffs at season's end.

    @KingJames Idk if this a Space Jam reference or not but you gonna play this weekend?

    You can check out the trailer for Space Jam: A New Legacy. It's set to release July 16 in theaters and on HBO Max.
