Shaw ’13: Space Jam 2013: NBA to the rescue
A few weeks ago, I delivered an in-depth analysis of the timeless classic, “Space Jam.” The modern epic in which Michael Jordan and the Looney Tune bunch take on the bad guys in some classic five-on-five action made me wonder: Who in today’s NBA would represent us in a doomsday/basketball scenario? Seeing as I’m completely unqualified to write about baseball, let’s roll with it.
The framework for this team will be nine players — a solid playoff rotation — who can actually play together. Unlike an All-Star team, these won’t be five ball-dominant, no-defense chuckers. And just like in the ’92 Olympics, Isaiah Thomas will have nothing to do with this team.
