LeBron James is back in Fortnite but who else would we like to see?
LeBron James is back in Fortnite for fans who want to pick up the future NBA Hall of Famer. While his stint in the video game realm didn’t go as planned with Space Jam 2, James is a huge, multi-platform star and his images do help sell quite a bit of items.
He won’t be the only major sports star in Fortnite, as NFL star Patrick Mahomes has been hinted at as well in recent leaks from data miners. Mahomes is one of the more popular players in the league and his creativity as a passer has made him must-see TV.
Yet, who else should pop up on Fortnite over the coming months? We have a list of at least five athletes we’d like to see join the game, and we tried to only pick one from some of the bigger sports. This isn’t everyone we’d like to see, not even close, just the first five that came to mind.
Five athletes we’d like to see in Fortnite
Few female pro sports stars have the pedigree and accolades of Kayla Harrison. She’s won Olympic Gold, and multiple world championships in MMA and would not only appeal to a unique group of Fortnite players but may also see her platform rise because of it.
The Japanese two-way sensation that is Shohei Ohtani is a can’t miss player and his abilities as both a pitcher and hitter are becoming legendary. His appeal to not only Japanese fans but fans of Major League Baseball would be the big selling point.
While not officially, I view Josh Allen as an in-game rival of Patrick Mahomes. They are among the very best at their positions and are having historically good games against one another’s teams. It would make sense Allen would come in after Mahomes.
Fans who aren’t into hockey may not know who PK Subban is, but if you’re interested in aggressive, smart, and cunning athletes, few are as such as the defensemen who’s taken the league by storm over the last few years.
In two years’ time, Luka Doncic may not only be the best player in the NBA but the most popular. It would make all the sense in the world to attach yourself to him now.
