New, comments

Earlier today, Nike released a video on YouTube. The video is a dunk contest between Blake Griffin and Marvin the Martian from Looney Tunes fame. Is this a sign that Blake might be in the next Space Jam movie?

Anyone younger than 10 might not know what Space Jam is. They might think it's a new dunk. Or a new drink. But it is one of the greatest sports movies of all time. Okay, maybe not one of the greatest, or even really good, but it has the greatest basketball player of all time, Michael Jordan, along with one of the greatest cartoon casts of all time, the Looney Tunes.

Recently, a sequel was announced, and the star of the new movie will be LeBron James. In the first movie, there were cameos by NBA players like Muggsy Bogues, Shawn Bradley, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, and Larry Johnson. In the movie, the Monstars stole those players NBA abillities, and used them against Michael Jordan and the Looney Tunes.

Does this Jordan add mean that Griffin will be in the new movie? Will it just be a cameo like the other NBA stars in the first movie? Or, will Griffin play more of a supporting cast role alongside LeBron James. We should find out in the near future.
