“Space Jam: A New Legacy” has a shocking revelation buried inside of it — LeBron James is a Hufflepuff.

“Space Jam: A New Legacy” reveals LeBron James’ Harry Potter house

Per ComicBook.com, the new “Space Jam: A New Legacy” movie reveals which Harry Potter house LeBron James would have belonged to if he went to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

  • In the movie, James teams up with Bugs Bunny and the gang to save his son from the Warner Bros. digital universe. In that digital universe, they meet a number of Warner Bros. brands, which include the Harry Potter World theme park. While there, the sorting hat reveals LeBron’s house.
  • “Hufflepuff? I knew it!” LeBron says in the new film, according to ComicBook.com.

What does being a Hufflepuff mean?

So what does it mean if you’re a Hufflepuff? Well, per Dictionary.com, it means you’re pretty nice, overall.

  • “Hufflepuff is known for having members that are patient, fair, hard-working, and sometimes blandly nice,” according to Dictionary.com.

But let’s move to a more reliable source. Head over to the Harry Potter Wiki and you’ll find a more interesting definition of the Hufflepuff group.

  • “Students belonging to this house were known to be hard-working, friendly, loyal, honest and rather impartial,” according to the Harry Potter Wiki. “It may be that due to their values, Hufflepuffs are not as competitive as the other houses, and are more modest about their accomplishments. Hufflepuff is the most inclusive among the four houses; valuing hard work, dedication, patience, loyalty, and fair play rather than a particular aptitude in its students.”

Is LeBron James a Hufflepuff?

LeBron definitely works hard. But there are a few of these traits you could question, considering that he wasn’t too patient with his NBA career (deciding to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers to win titles with the Miami Heat), nor has he been overwhelmingly loyal and dedicated by switching from the Cavs to the Heat, back to the Cavs and then, finally, to the Los Angeles Lakers.

But, he has been married to his high school sweetheart. So that says something, too.
