Much has been made about the Space Jam sequel which has been discussed recently. The movie will star LeBron James and we don’t know very much more about the film. That hasn’t stopped people from speculating and commenting on the production anyway.

90s nostalgia is extremely hot right now and every corner of entertainment is looking to cash in on that popularity. It only makes sense that Warner Brothers would want to take one of the classic pieces of 90s pop culture and update it with the greatest player on the planet.

Michael Jordan himself recently commented on the sequel to his hit 1994 film. He said that he would rather see Blake Griffin star in a follow-up picture. That makes sense for a variety of reasons because his slam dunks are already CGI quality in real life.

Also to be noted, the Los Angeles Clippers star is a member of His Airness’ Jordan Brand division at Nike. Leave it to the greatest player of all time to try and maximize the earning potential from all sides in making the movie.

Other former players that were in the original Space Jam are getting in on the act. Muggsy Bogues, a Charlotte Hornets fan-favorite, was asked his thoughts on the casting.

He replied: “I heard Michael say he would like to see Blake Griffin star as him, but I would’ve thought Kobe [Bryant] would kind of fit that mold more. And you gotta have Stephen [Curry] in some kind of way. It’s going to be hard to create that type of cast again.”

Some pretty strong opinions from former NBA-ers to be sure. You can’t really go wrong with a living legend like Bryant or the two-time MVP. But, LeBron is in, no matter what former cast members believe should be done.
