The best way to play him is aggressively but he can be a tricky character to master thanks to his unusual playstyle. Players will be asked to be aggressive as him due to his unique ball mechanic.

(Side Special) he can surprise opponents if you coordinate it with a teammate. Imagine an unsuspecting foe midair outside the ring with LeBron suddenly teleporting behind them to dunk them to the abyss below.

His unique moveset means that you have to keep a special eye on LeBron as whether he has the basketball or not is a deciding factor on what he does. Due to how he recovers his ball, you’re better playing him as an aggressive character who fights face-to-face with the toughest foes.

Make sure to equip the Make It Rain, Dog! perk as his ball projectile has increased speed. This makes it easier to hit opponents when LeBron throws the ball their way. Best be careful when engaging opponents head on as compared to other bruisers, LeBron doesn’t have that much defensive options with a playstyle that almost leans to purely dealing damage.
