Michael Jordan would pick Blake Griffin, not LeBron James, for ‘Space Jam 2’

LeBron James Space Jam

Rumors have been flying for months — years, even — that a second “Space Jam” movie is in the works. The first, which featured Michael Jordan and some never-before-seen technology, was a huge box office success. Jordan hasn’t said a whole lot about the possibility of a sequel, but you might be surprised to hear which current NBA player he thinks should star in it.

We’ll give you a hint: it’s not LeBron James.

Speaking to some kids at a basketball camp recently, Jordan was asked who he would choose for the main role in “Space Jam 2.” He said Blake Griffin.

We don’t know if there will ever be another “Space Jam” film (here’s the latest info on a possible sequel), but we’re fairly confident Blake Griffin won’t be the star of it. Heck, the director of the first movie doesn’t seem to think anyone in today’s NBA is a big enough star for the film to be a hit, and we all know LeBron attracts more fans than Griffin.

Was that M.J.’s way of throwing shade at LeBron? We’ll probably never know.
