With the exception of Star Wars, The Godfather and Toy Story, sequels almost always ruin whatever movie franchise it is associated with. For some reason though, we always beg for another one. This is, again, true for the Space Jam franchise. I know Space Jam 2 is going to be terrible, but I am ready to be hurt again. I want to see my favorite movie get ruined.
There may be a slight problem though. Much like LeBron in real life, nobody wants to play with him in his movie either. As of right now, the only confirmed NBA player is LeBron James. Michael Jordan, on the other hand, had no problem getting other stars to join him on the big screen. Larry Johnson, Shawn Bradley, Patrick Ewing, Muggsy Bogues and Charles Barkley all had credited roles in the 1996 film.
Even Bill Murray got a major role.
Rest assured, LeBron will eventually get another baller to be in his movie. However, the question of who? remains. Now, you can profit off the uncertainty, because of the wonderful place that the internet is. Here are the current odds from Bovada:
Here are some things that are for sure: JR Smith will be in the movie in some capacity. I don’t think he will have a credited role, but LeBron’s disciple will appear somewhere. Giannis will NOT be in the movie. He has already come out and said that he wants nothing to do with Hollywood.
My projections for who will be in Space Jam 2:
I wouldn’t think KD would be in the movie if it wasn’t for the absolute disaster of a movie that Thunderstuck was. If you don’t know what I am talking about, just Google it for a good laugh. Also, I am 99% sure Shaq will force his way into the movie somehow.
