You all know the story; Michael Jordan, after retiring from the NBA (for the first time) gets sucked down a golf hole and roped into defending Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes from a group of evil aliens that for some reason listen to Danny DeVito. Anyways, Mike and his cartoon buddies fell behind early, but came back and won on a buzzer-beater, preventing poor MJ from becoming a slave on Moron Mountain.

In the breakdown, Coach Nick talks about the Tune Squad’s slow start, and how some help from a potentially banned substance at halftime helped Newman and the gang pull off the greatest comeback in a game where aliens stole powers from actual NBA players. (It’s not a huge sample size.)

So, here’s the breakdown of the Space Jam game, which is still one of the most popular basketball movies of all time.
