After LeBron‘s performance in Trainwreck received favorable reviews in tinsel town, news came in today that Warner Brothers signed a deal with no.23’s Springhill Entertainment company to produce original television, film, and digital content. This immediately sparked Space Jam 2 rumors, and given Warner Brothers’ moves surrounding the Space Jam franchise a month ago, the rumors might as well be true. But who would make up the roster for the dreaded return of the Monstars? If you remember from the first film, the squad had a few longtime All-Stars such as Larry Johnson and Charles Barkley that were built to defeated Jordan and the Tunes Squad. So naturally we filled out the fictional Monstars squad with some NBA stars in the league (and out) that could potentially take down LeBron and his Looney Tune teammates in a purported battle for control over the universe. Check out the list below.
It will be devastating to see Nate Rob go through the pain of having his leaping ability taken from him in the movie, but his Monstar surrogate should make for as entertaining a show as any. Of course, having his out of this world jumping ability taken from him is something more dramatic than anything Mugsy went through in the original Space Jam, but the added drama will only raise the stakes. Also props to whoever Photoshopped Nate as a Monstar already.
