While not exactly a fictional character like most of the MultiVersus fighters, LeBron James is still a force to be reckoned with in the hands of someone who has mastered his combos and special moves.

The game allows for incredibly high levels of play for those familiar with all the mechanics and variations in how fighters can be used. Getting there is difficult, but it's worth trying for your favourite fighters. So, learn more about LeBron James and how to utilise him.

LeBron James combos

LeBron James’ neutral-special is a great combo starter in MultiVersus. After throwing his basketball, he can leap toward his opponent to regain the ball, then follow up with a neutral-air or forward-air. Afterwards, he can try to continue with another aerial or a grounded side-normal combo.

In addition, the basketball versions of both up-air and up-special are solid kill moves off the top of the screen. As a result, LeBron can try to get his opponents in the air with down-air or grounded up-normal, then juggle them with up-airs.

Perk Effect
For Three! LeBron and allies that hit enemies with a basketball will cause the ball to explode.
Hot Hands If you complete a no-look pass to an ally, the basketball is ignited. Dunking an ignited ball damages all enemies.
Keep Possession When LeBron or an ally receives a pass, they gain grey health.

As far as general perks go, LeBron thrives with Utility perks. I Dodge You Dodge We Dodge gives him a 10% cooldown refund whenever he dodges an attack.

This helps to ensure that he never has to go long without a basketball. Once he learns how to train perks  LeBron James could replace this perk with Coffeezilla.

Meanwhile, the Gravity Manipulation perk increases his fall speed by 10%, helping him return to the stage quicker after he’s launched in the air. Finally, the Offense perk Make It Rain, Dog! grants a 20% speed buff to his projectiles, making his basketball throws even quicker.
