It's safe to say that there will never be another basketball game quite like the contest between Michael Jordan's Tune Squad and the Monstars. Nearly 20 years after that intergalactic confrontation, the climactic "Space Jam" clash is getting the treatment it deserves: a fake ESPN "30 For 30" documentary.
With the help of some former NBA players, coaches, analysts and journalists, Yahoo! Screen chronicled the events leading up to the game and the high stakes battle itself.
"If you saw it in a movie you wouldn't believe it," sportscaster Larry Burnett said. "And it'd be a pretty bad movie too."
Kurt Rambis, Greg Anthony, Doug Gottlieb, Mark Madsen -- just to name a few of those featured -- discuss everything, from Jordan's accomplishments at the time of the film to the initial shock when everyone realized mankind was not alone in the universe.
"Jordan had beaten Magic and Bird, but this was a whole different beast," Gottlieb said. "We're talking about three 12-footers and two guys with spikes coming out of their heads."
Needless to say, there was plenty of talk about the questionable officiating.
