It sounds like Michael Jordan isn't necessarily on board with LeBron James starring in the Space Jam sequel. In a video taken at Jordan's camp, he picks another player for the lead role when asked who he thinks should fill his shoes.

"Who would I choose? I would probably pick Blake Griffin," Jordan says.

Griffin is of course sponsored by Jordan Brand, which no doubt influenced MJ's answer. That being said, he's not nearly a superstar on the level of LeBron James–and he's definitely not on the level that Jordan was when the first movie came out.

Hollywood Reporter broke the news in May that James was to star in the new Space Jam film.
