Space Jam was perhaps one of the most unforgettable movies of the 1990s. For many it’s a childhood classic. How could it not be? Michael Jordan was an icon, especially to children, and the Looney Tunes were beloved by kids everywhere. Watching Michael Jordan renew his love for basketball via his outrageous gambling addiction (remember that he bet his life on the outcome of the game, ADDICT!) while clowning around with the Looney Tunes was a joy for all. The movie is a unique classic, so it’s almost inconceivable to imagine a Space Jam sequel. Enter LeBron James.

During a late-night Twitter session, LeBron James expressed his love for the film and even his desire to star in a Space Jam sequel! I can see it now: LeBron James reveals he has been kidnapped and imprisoned by his jealous, evil twin brother LeBaron, who made a deal with the Monstars. LeBaron has been playing for the Heat and impersonating LeBron ever since he hit free agency. The real LeBron escapes and returns to lead the Cleveland Cavaliers, but the team’s roster is stocked with Looney Tunes because it was the only way owner Dan Gilbert could think of to get people to attend games. Eventually LeBron has to lead the Looney Tune laden Cavs to a title over the Heat, because all the Western Conference teams were frozen in ice or sent to space or something, don’t over-think it. Also, all the Heat players have been warped into basketball monsters by LeBaron’s Monstar allies. As you probably could have guessed, Chris Bosh is now literally a basketball playing velociraptor. Dwayne Wade meanwhile just doesn’t give a shit, and one of the Heat’s monster players eats Eric Spoelstra four minutes into the first quarter of the game.
The title? Space Jam 2: Crisis LeBaron
Yeah, I’d watch that.
