Some Fortnite leakers have confirmed that a Lebron James skin might be the next Icon Series skin.
Back in May of 2021 Fortnite and NBA had a collaborating where we got community battles. There were some challenges and an NBA-themed creative hub designed for Fortnite players to enjoy and complete challenges.
We also got the NBA skins in the item shop with almost all of the NBA team selectable costumes. There were also some NBA player locker bundles introduced in the Fortnite item shop including Donovan Mitchell, Trae Young, and Justin Jefferson.
Now some recent leaks have confirmed that one of the biggest names in Basketball, Lebron James is becoming part of the Fortnite world.
Fortnite Lebron James Icon Series:
Just recently Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR announced on his Twitter account about Lebron James Icon series skin. The tweet reads,
“EXCLUSIVE: LEBRON JAMES WILL BE THE NEXT ICON SERIES SKIN”
Another Fortnite leaker HYPEX shared some additional information about the Lebron James skin. According to this leak, the Lebron James skin turns more gold as you complete quests. Players will also be able to earn the King’s Bling backbling by completing quests. After all of the quests are complete a goodness slider will be unlocked that can be used to adjust the gold level of the skin. HYPEX’s tweet reads,
“LeBron James skin is coming next update!
– Earn rewards by completing King’s Bling quests
– Items become more gold as you complete quests!
Unlock a custom goldness slider when all quests are complete!”
A few days ago some people spotted an artist supposedly commissioned by Fortnite, drawing this mural on a wall in Chicago. The mural depicts a set of wings and a crown. This mural seemed to point to the King’s Bling backbling which is part of the Lebron James skin.
As usual, take all of this with a grain of salt as Epic is yet to make any formal statement regarding this matter.
