In Honor Of Michael Jordan’s 50th Birthday: How The Winning Dunk From ‘Space Jam’ Encapsulates His Career
Today marks the 50th birthday of Michael Jordan, the greatest basketball player of all time. Everyone is sharing their favorite MJ plays and memories, but one aspect of Jordan’s career is woefully under-appreciated on this day: how Space Jam, specifically Jordan’s game-winning dunk from the big game, is the perfect microcosm of his days in the NBA.
I loved Space Jam. Absolutely loved it. I was also six-years-old and thought Michael Jordan had a knack for baseball. It was a shitty movie. The low point of several NBA legends. The low point of the Looney Tunes. The low point of sport cinema. So obviously, LeBron James wishes he could make a sequel, starring himself. Read more after the jump.
NBA drama-queens Dwight Howard and Carmelo Anthony are in the news again. They’re starring in a major Chinese motion picture, titled Amazing, slated for release this summer, in China. And fortunately for us, a trailer has surfaced. Take a look:
If you’re a fan of efficient basketball, Space Jam might be the movie for you.
A funny parody has emerged of how LeBron would have reacted if he played Michael Jordan’s part in Space Jam.
You might be aware that the original website for the move Space Jam, in glorious 1996 Internet form, began making the internet rounds today. Geekosystem wrote about it already, but there was one part of this site I enjoyed so much, I couldn’t resist sharing it myself.
