Space Jam 2 with LeBron James is rumoured to be in the works 20 years after the original involving Michael Jordan took the big screen world by storm. But YouTuber Ryan Higa, with the help of Brooklyn Nets point guard Jeremy Lin, jumped past that and created his own anime version of the famous movie, titled 'Space Jam 3'.
There is no surprise appearance from MJ unfortunately, it may just have been outside of their budget. But Lin plays the role well and the Nets can now boast an actor, of sorts, on their roster.
Unlike Jordan and his victory over the Monstars, Lin and his team of anime characters suffer a funny, unfortunate ending. Click here to watch the video. There is also a great behind the scenes clip, click here to see it.
After rediscovering his best form as a sixth man with the Charlotte Hornets, Lin has a chance to be the leader of the Brooklyn Nets as he prepares to play for his fourth franchise in four years. He returns to the city where he made his name, New York, and will have a chance to show his former franchise up close and personal why they were wrong to let him go.
The Nets are in a tough spot as they continue to suffer from a series of poor trades that saw them sacrifice numerous draft picks. However, general manager Sean Marks has done well in the offseason to assemble a team for Kenny Atkinson that the franchise feels can be more competitive than last season.
