USA Basketball Men's National Team Training CampIt's not a sure thing yet, but after weeks of speculation, NBA star LeBron James has finally confirmed the rumors: he wants to make a sequel to "Space Jam."

In an interview with Today that aired on Friday, James discussed his recent partnership with Warner Bros., the studio behind the 1996 Looney Tunes/basketball mashup flick. While the athlete (and current "Trainwreck" star) said that he hopes to pursue other projects in the entertainment industry once his NBA career is over, one property in particular has piqued a lot of interest -- and James didn't shy away from fueling the fire.

"We're definitely missing Bugs and Daffy and Tasmanian Devil and and every last one of them," James said when asked about the possibility of making "Space Jam 2," "so hopefully we can do some great things."

It seems like a no-brainer for Warner Bros. -- which reportedly recently renewed some important "Space Jam" trademarks, in a move ramping up the sequel speculation -- and James's commitment to the idea should help fast-track the concept. Now, the ball is in the studio's court; here's hoping they take a shot.
