Mockumentary Looks Back on ‘Space Jam’
Basketball legend Michael Jordan’s acting career was mostly limited to Space Jam, a movie that starred the hall-of-famer, Bill Murray, Wayne Knight and a whole host of Looney Tunes characters playing in a basketball game for the fate of the Looney Tunes themselves. The big game was the crux of the film, and featured the appropriately named Tune Squad up against the Monstars, who had stolen the basketball talent of Jordan’s contemporaries Patrick Ewing, Larry Johnson, Charles Barkley, Muggsy Bogues and Shawn Bradley.
To commemorate the “historic” basketball game in Space Jam, Yahoo! Screen has posted a pitch-perfect parody of ESPN’s 30 for 30 mini-documentary series, with appearances from CBS Sports commentator Doug Bradley, NBA Historian Pete Lovell, Fox Sports commentator Larry Burnett, former Lakers player Kurt Rambis and more. The five-minute clip very seriously examines the circumstances leading up to the game, the game itself and Jordan’s winning half-court dunk.
