It's official! LeBron James is coming to Fortnite as the next figure to be represented in the Icon Series line of Fortnite cosmetic items. We have everything you need to know about King James and his appearance below.

LATEST - Leaker Offers First Look At LeBron

ShiinaBR, the notable Fortnite data miner and leaker, has just shared a brand-new look at LeBron James' Fortnite appearance. It looks pretty legit and Shiina is known for providing accurate information.

As you can see below, it looks like LeBron is going to have three different appearances to choose from. We can imagine there will be a challenge to unlock the central one.


The appearance of this leak makes us think we're going to see something more official from Epic Games very soon. They don't let leaks linger for long.

First LeBron James Fortnite Teaser Appears In-Game

The teases have officially begun. Despite the announcement being spoiled quite some time ago, that hasn't stopped the hype around the arrival of LeBron James in Fortnite.

Recently, the first in-game teases began in the exact location that @HYPEX predicted.


LeBron Teaser Location Leaked

Thanks to @HYPEX on Twitter, we now know when and where the LeBron James Fortnite skin will be teased.


They've taken a screenshot of a wall while standing in the basketball court (well, duh) West of Believer Beach. The tease is set to go live at some point over the next week prior to the skin likely releasing on the 14th July.


LeBron James Cranking Nineties? More Likely Than You Think

We know, we know. It sounds crazy, but there's a lot of strange stuff that happens in Fortnite.

Shiina, a notable Fortnite leaker and data miner, has stated with "100% confirmation" that LeBron James is going to be the next Icon Series skin to be added to Fortnite's ever-growing roster of collaborative cosmetics. You can check out their tweet below:

Not sure who LeBron James is? Here's a quick rundown via the internet's dictionary: Wikipedia.

" LeBron Raymone James Sr. (born December 30, 1984) is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association (NBA). Widely considered one of the best NBA players in history, James is frequently compared to Michael Jordan in debates over the greatest basketball player ever."

Asides from the late Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan, he's probably the most famous face in Basketball. He's also going to be in Space Jam 2 if that's your thing.

He's Going To Be Joining All The Fortnite Greats

As an Icon Series skin, LeBron James' Fortnite appearance is going to be joining a line-up worthy of his reputation (at least in the strange Fortnite ecosystem). Below, we've got a list of everyone else who's featured in Epic Games' Icon Series so far...

  • Ninja (Streamer)
  • Loserfruit (Streamer)
  • Lachlan (Streamer)
  • Marshmello (DJ)
  • Major Lazer (Artist Representation of Electronic Trio)
  • Travis Scott (Rapper)
  • Astro Jack (Travis Scott's Astroworld Character)
  • TheGrefg (Streamer)

THE LIKENESS IS THERE - If there's one thing Epic Games does well, it's capture a person's likeness

There's definitely worse company to be in. Both Harry Kane and Marco Reus have also featured in Fortnite. So, although he isn't the first sportsperson to be featured in-game, he is allegedly the first to feature in Fortnite's Icon Series.
