There’s not much of a story when Mark Wahlberg hits the gym for a quick arm workout, or Lebron James gets in a leg-strengthening circuit at the Cleveland Cavaliers training facility, but when the two icons in their respective fields get together for a workout, well that’s something that deserves a closer look.

So when the reigning NBA champ, posted the above pic on his Instagram page, people quickly began speculating as to why the pair were hitting the iron together. The consensus seems to be that the dynamic duo may be starring in the upcoming movie, Space Jam 2.

For those old enough to remember, the original Space Jam featured a pretty good basketball player in his own right who went by the name of Michael Jordan. The 1996 sports comedy was a huge hit, as Jordan was at the height of his basketball stardom when the film was released. And now, after winning his 3rd NBA championship and bringing the long-awaited trophy to the city of Cleveland, James too finds himself at the pinnacle of his career.

Does that make James a lock for the Space Jam sequel? Nothing is 100% certain, but given the hoopsters enthusiasm about working with Wahlberg, we’d say the project looks like a slam dunk!
