The "King" is in "Fortnite." The popular battle royale game dropped the LeBron James Icon Series skin, available for players to get their hands on and use to their liking. There might be a lot of things that LeBron can do, from his colorful basketball career as an All-Star player to being an actor for Space Jam 2's lead character, but this new one is the most bizarre.
Being a character in "Fortnite" can be considered as a massive recognition from the game and popular culture, especially as only famous people get to join the battle royale. That being said, this is a rumor that has been confirmed and is now official from Epic Games.
