LeBron James is the latest famous face to receive Fortnite‘s Icon treatment.

The Los Angeles Lakers trailblazer, and forthcoming Space Jam: A New Legacy star, will reside inside the game with a collection of skins beginning Wednesday, July 14, two days before the aforementioned film’s premiere.

Within the Fortnite package, Epic Games will sell two different King James skins: one modeled after a regular LeBron with a number of signature outfits, including a classic game day look from 2018, and another taking after the all-star player’s Space Jam role with a Tune Squad-embossed jersey and a casual “Taco Tuesday” get-up. Each ensemble includes a matching iteration of James’ go-to sneaker, the Nike LeBron 19.

In a statement, Epic Games said that the new skins “blend the best of LeBron’s on-court and pregame persona.”

Additionally, the skins arrive equipped with the King’s Back Bling and can be purchased in a bundle that includes the Wingspan Glider, Lion Pickaxe and a new taunt, dubbed “The Silencer,” nodding to one of James’ signature game-time celebrations.

James’ Fortnite induction marks the game’s latest crossover with a sports icon. In April, Epic Games unveiled a fresh set of skins for soccer superstar Neymar Jr., after announcing a partnership with 23 global clubs to bring soccer to the platform in January.

Elsewhere in the battle royale game, Thanos has returned to Fortnite after three years.
