CUE THE FLASHBACKS!
Anyone who was a kid or a young teen in 1996 remembers Space Jam, the live-action movie mixed with cartoons that united NBA superstars with Bill Murray and the Looney Tunes. It was insane and weird and hilarious at the time, and has since become sort of a cult favorite of 90's kids.
Part of the allure of Space Jam is that they got some of the best NBA players ever to not only star in a kids movie together, but to act opposite cartoons. Michael Jordan was the biggest superstar athlete on the planet and there he was, at the height of his fame in the mid-90's, playing basketball with Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck.
So needless to say, Jordan's 'Tune Squad' uni is going to be a major score for some millennial who practiced those moves on the hoop on their bedroom door.
If you haven't seen this cinematic gem, I highly recommend it. Bill Murray can make any movie worth watching, including this one. How else would we all know to this day that Bill Murray doesn't play defense?
