Video: Michael Jordan Reveals Who He Wants to Be in Space Jam 2… and it’s Not LeBron James

With a sequel of the basketball-oriented 1996 hit film “Space Jam” in the works – most likely featuring LeBron James – Michael Jordan was asked this week who he’d like to be the new movie’s star.

MJ of course starred in the original film, which grossed over $230 million worldwide and became a major hit with audiences.

However, while speaking to a group of kids at what appears to be a basketball camp, the six-time NBA champion refused to endorse James as his successor in the film.

 

Nope, instead the 53-year-old picked Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers:

 

 

Griffin is of course a Jordan-sponsored player, meaning it makes perfect business sense for Jordan to pick the 27-year-old.

However, its difficult to see past James actually getting the part when the film is officially announced due to his star power.

Having won the NBA championship last season with the Cleveland Cavaliers certainly won’t hurt his credentials either…
