Shiina: “Exclusive: LeBron James Gets His Own Skin.” Nanoboy33: Are you sure about this or is this a joke? I would love that. Shiina: “I have 100% confirmation that this is true”
Information about the appearance of a basketball player first appeared in early May 2021. At the end of the same month, Fortnite hosted a crossover with the basketball league. In Battle Royale, a special mode was available, but the LeBron James skin did not appear in the game.
Apparently, the LeBron James skin will be added along with a separate event, similar to the footballer Neymar. The Paris Saint-Germain striker appeared in Battle Royale in Spring 2021 with a line of special missions and a range of cosmetic items.
