Space Jam 2 is rumoured to be heading to the big screen 20 years after the original, and it is believed LeBron James will be the leader of the new generation of NBA players. Michael Jordan was the undeniable star in 1996 and his stature helped the original film take off; making $230.4 million at the box office and enshrining itself into popular culture.
There has never been much doubt that LeBron would play the MJ role if a sequel ever occurred, however, the man himself tipped another player to take the limelight, and it's not who anybody would have expected.
A video is doing the rounds from Jordan's 'Flight School' summer camp where a youngster asked the G.O.A.T who he would pick to replace him in the second addition. After one of the children hilariously shouted 'Kwame Brown', the six-time champion gave his answer. Scroll down to see the video.
He said he'd like to see L.A. Clippers star Blake Griffin take up the position. Now, Griffin is certainly a big name within the NBA world, but he doesn't have the superstar pull of James and is unlikely to be given the opportunity. Although, he could play one of the supporting roles.
The cast in the '90s included Charles Barkley, Larry Bird, Muggsy Bogues, Patrick Ewing, Shawn Bradley and Larry Johnson, so a second film would certainly have some big names. Maybe Jordan could even make a cameo appearance, it's something we'd all like to see. Details of a potential scarce are scarce but the excitement is still there.
Griffin missed the majority of last season due to a series of injuries and will be hoping he can propel himself back into the public eye with a strong showing next season.
The Clippers missed his presence last season in the playoffs and he will be a valuable asset as they attempt to live with the Warriors.
