Like many his age, Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas was a fan of the basketball flick Space Jam. Starring Michael Jordan at the height of his powers, the 1996 cartoon featured cameos from Patrick Ewing, Charles Barkley, Larry Johnson, Shawn Bradley and the diminutive Muggsy Bogues.
For months now a sequel is rumored to be in the works, with Lebron James and Blake Griffin strongly linked to the project. Not wanting to miss his chance, the 5-9 Thomas wants in on the role of the 5-3 Bogues. Thomas said as much in a recent Twitter post.
With 5-5 Earl Boykins out of the league, Thomas’ only competition might be 5-9 former slam dunk champ Nate Robinson. Here’s hoping the Monstars don’t get to them during the season.
