In this age of sequels and trilogies and endless branding and rebranding, it feels inevitable that Space Jam, arguably the greatest film to never win an Oscar, will get a follow-up one of these days.

Some intrepid attendee at some basketball camp Michael Jordan happened to be at decided to ask His Airness who he would choose to star in a potential sequel.

For what it’s worth, endless rumors and a few substantial signs are pointing toward LeBron James eventually doing the next one. But MJ thought differently.

Watch the video. No spoilers.

If you didn’t watch the video and just scrolled down here, congrats. He picked Blake Griffin.


Not really. It should be noted that Blake Griffin is a Jordan athlete. LeBron knowingly operates in Jordan’s shadow. He may very well one day make the movie.

The real MVP is the kid who yelled “KWAME BROWN!”

Kwame Brown.
