LeBron James's influence is unmistakable. Not only is he a four-time NBA MVP who's played in six NBA Finals and won two championships, but he's also one of the best pitchmen in sports and very active with his charity work. He even had a supporting role as himself in one of the biggest comedies of 2015, Trainwreck. You'd think that kind of real-world influence would be enough for him, but you would also be wrong. Now he's slipping into the cartoon world as well, playing himself in an episode of Cartoon Network's Teen Titans Go!
The episode is called "The Cruel Giggling Ghoul," and among other things, it will see the cartoon James fooling around as a mascot. According to Entertainment Weekly, fellow NBA stars Paul George, Kyrie Irving, and Damian Lillard will also get the cartoon treatment, voicing characters in an episode of We Bare Bears in an episode called "Charlie Ball." Both episodes are part of Turner's All-Star Jam, which happens every year in conjunction with the NBA All-Star game. They'll air on Cartoon Network on Thursday, February 11, with Teen Titans Go! at 6 p.m. and We Bare Bears at 7 p.m.
