Summary: Space Jam is a basketball movie starring Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny, created by and produced by Warner bros. The movie also has former NBA stars such as Charles Barkley, Larry Bird, Patrick Ewing, Larry Johnson, and Mugsy Bouges. The Nerdlucks, who are enemies with the Looney Tunes, challenged them to a basketball game. In order to win, the Nerdlucks steal the talents of Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Larry Johnson, and Mugsy Bouges. Clearly intimidated, the Looney Tunes needed some star power of their own. Bugs Bunny, the leader of the Looney Tunes, decided to go out and get someone to help them beat the Nerdlucks. The best option was to go for Michael Jordan, who at the time was retired from basketball. His baseball career was clearly not going as planned, and Bugs thought it would be a good idea to get Michael back on the basketball scene, and hopefully help them beat the monstars.
