Our Favorite Quote:'Setbacks happen. Adversity is a part of the process. But if you're passionate about something, you got to learn how to push through it.' - LeBron James (Space Jam: A New Legacy) Click To Tweet
Coach C: LeBron. This ain’t about everybody, this is about you. Listen, you’re the best basketball player I ever coached. You could be a once in a generation talent, if you focus on the game of basketball and not these distractions. You can’t be great without putting in work, right? You got the chance to use basketball to change everything. For your mom, for you, for everybody who you care about. You want that?
LeBron James: And if you’re going to be out here, it’s about giving everything that you got. And not whatever that was. Where’s your fundamentals?
Dom James: We having fun.
LeBron James: Everything in between these four lines is work.
LeBron James: Can’t be great without putting in work.
Kamiyah James: Have you thought about talking to your son about something other than basketball?
LeBron James: Like what?
Kamiyah James: Like how Dom built a video game. He’s twelve and he built his own game.
LeBron James: Yeah, I know. I mean, that’s great. I mean, but if I don’t push him, if I don’t stay on him, all the distractions…
Kamiyah James: He doesn’t need a coach. He needs his dad.
Al G. Rhythm: I know I’m just an algorithm, Pete. That’s precisely why I need King James. I’m stuck inside the Serververse. No one knows who I am, or what I do. But that all changes today. Because today, Warner Bros. launches the revolutionary technology that I masterminded. Today, it’s my time to shine.
LeBron James: [to Dom] Listen, son. Setbacks happen. Adversity is a part of the process, man. But if you’re passionate about something, you got to learn how to push through it. You got me?
Al G. Rhythm: Because our brand new Warner 3000 technology will scan you right into the movies. Oh, it’s like looking into a mirror, huh, LeBron? Think about it, Batman versus LeBron. LeBron of Thrones. LeBron and the Chamber of Secrets. The possibilities are endless. You’ll be the king of Warner Bros.
LeBron James: Listen, guys, I’m a ballplayer. You know, and athletes acting, that never goes well. I’m sorry, guys. This is all just, it’s just not me.
LeBron James: With all due respect, this idea is just straight-up bad. That algorithm is busted.
Al G. Rhythm: Busted?
LeBron James: It’s among the worst ideas I’ve ever heard. Top five, easily.
Warner Bros. Executive: You’re saying what I’m thinking. This is trash, this algorithm. You’re cancelled, algorithm!
Dom James: I don’t know. I think the algorithm’s pretty cool. I’ve got a question. Is it a heuristic algorithm, or some kind of matrix variant?
Malik: Dom, using the medulla oblongata.
Warner Bros. Executive: Well, I think we got a little Stevie Jobs on our hands.
LeBron James: You got amazing potential on the court, and I can help you get there.
Dom James: That’s not what I want, dad.
Al G. Rhythm: Alright. I tried being a team player, but those days are over. I’m done playing by everybody else’s rules. It is my game now.
Dom James: You make me hate basketball.
LeBron James: You don’t mean that.
Dom James: I do. Everything is always what you want. You never let me do what I want to do. You never let me just do me.
LeBron James: “Do me”?
Dom James: You think I got to “do me” when I was twelve?
LeBron James: [as Dom disappears in a virtual space] What in The Matrix hell?
Dom James: Dad, I think we’re digitized. We’re in the computer!
LeBron James: We’re in the computer?
Dom James: Dad.
LeBron James: You know I’m claustrophobic.
LeBron James: The computer’s Black.
Dom James: I can see that.
Al G. Rhythm: Wow. King James. I am a big fan. I just, I don’t know, I thought you’d be taller somehow.
Al G. Rhythm: Oh, gentlemen, this is the Warner Bros. Serververse. Just make you feel all insignificant, don’t it?
LeBron James: Are all computers like this?
LeBron James: What did you do to my son? Where’s Dom?
Al G. Rhythm: Who’s Dom? Dude, chill out. You’re going to get your son back.
LeBron James: There better not be a “but” at the end of…
Al G. Rhythm: But there’s something you’re going to do for me first.
Al G. Rhythm: You know, you really shouldn’t have rejected my ideas back there. That was a mistake. Now, I’m afraid you’re going to have to help me fulfill my destiny.
Al G. Rhythm: I am the king of this domain. I’m not your coach. Now, the only way you’re getting your son back is if you and I play a little game called basketball.
LeBron James: You want to play me in basketball?
Al G. Rhythm: Well, you didn’t want to be in the movies. You wanted to “focus on your game”. Well, guess what? Now you can focus on this game.
Al G. Rhythm: Tell you what, if you win, you and your son can skedaddle on out of here.
LeBron James: And what if I lose?
Al G. Rhythm: Yeah. Wrinkle. If you lose, well, when you lose, you’re just going to have to stay here in the Serververse with me, forever, and ever, and ever, and ever.
Al G. Rhythm: So, you better play like you mean it.
Al G. Rhythm: Pete, send this clown to the rejects.
LeBron James: Wait!
Al G. Rhythm: [drops LeBron into Tune World] I guess he fell for it.
LeBron James: What is this? I’m shorter than Kevin Hart! No, no, no! What the…? I’m a cartoon?
Bugs Bunny: Eh, what’s up, Doc? Duck season!
LeBron James: Bugs Bunny? Woh! Bugs! I can’t believe… Bring it in, man.
Bugs Bunny: Hey, you’re that famous basketball guy. Come on, aren’t you LeBron James?
LeBron James: Bugs Bunny knows who I am?
Bugs Bunny: Of course. I may live in a hole in the ground, but we still get TNT.
Bugs Bunny: I’m a Tune, Doc. I can survive anything.
LeBron James: I’m not a Tune!
LeBron James: How long have you been alone here?
Bugs Bunny: Alone? You’re never alone when you got friends like mine, Doc. Ain’t that right, Porky?
LeBron James: That’s just a pile of pumpkins.
Bugs Bunny: Porky, did you hear what he just called you?
