“Space Jam,” a movie that exists, came out nearly 20 years ago, and fans are still eager for a sequel to the classic combination of ’90s basketball and “Looney Tunes” action. Though nothing has been confirmed, it seems like every other month there’s tantalising talk of a follow-up, and now Michael Jordan has revealed who he would want to take his spot on the Tune Squad.
During a Q&A session with a bunch of kids at what appears to be a summer camp, the NBA legend was asked the all-important question. Jordan thought for quite a while as kids in the audience shouted out suggestions, but eventually revealed his final decision: Blake Griffin.
Though almost all the talk of a theoretical “Space Jam” sequel casts Lebron James as the star, the power forward for the Los Angeles Clippers would be a solid choice to ball with Bugs and the gang. In an interview last fall, Griffin said he would “love to be involved in any capacity” when asked about a possible sequel.
While Jordan’s input is fun, our advice is not to believe anything you hear about “Space Jam 2” actually happening until you’re sitting down in a movie theatre. We’ve been burned before.
