Tips and Strategies for LeBron James in MultiVersus

As a Bruiser, LeBron excels at dealing damage, and his basketball helps him do this up close and far away. When playing this baller, you always want to ensure you have a basketball. This allows you to control the battlefield by placing a projectile hitbox and powering up your moves. LeBron's Check and Buckets! are great for controlling the space and forcing your foes to approach how you want.

By throwing the ball to your allies, you can also play LeBron with a support angle. This lets him either teleport with the L-Train! move and allow your partner to throw the ball themselves. LeBron has a versatile playset that forces your opponent to guess what you will do. Use this to mix up your enemies and your approach, as well as take advantage of LeBron's devastating combo game.
