space jam

It’s a big moment when you bust out of your teen years and into your 20s. No more mom and dad telling you what to do.

For the movie Space Jam, that time has come.

Turning 20 today, the Bugs Bunny/Michael Jordan vehicle has fans of all ages thinking back to that magical day in 1996 when they saw Space Jam for the first time. Step back with us, won’t you?

Minnesota Timberwolves’ Zach LaVine won the NBA All-Star Sprite Slam Dunk competition on Saturday night in New York, and he won over the crowd with a throwback to the 1996 movie “Space Jam.”

In his first attempt, he appeared on the court wearing Michael Jordan’s #23 Tune Squad jersey from the film while the Quad City DJs performed the theme song.

“I’m still on cloud nine. I feel like I’m dreaming,” he said. “Seeing all the dunk contests and people hoisting the trophy, I just saw myself do it and lived it, so it’s a dream come true. I’m glad my family is here to witness it and go through it.”

LaVine, who got 2 perfect scores, is the second youngest winner in the competition’s history next to Kobe Bryant.
