LeBron James Should Star in a “My Little Pony” Movie
Rumors came out last week that a sequel to Space Jam is in the works that would star LeBron James. Whether there is any truth to that, the 1996 classic should be left alone in its beloved glory. There are far too many classics that Hollywood has tried to revive that have failed many hearts. And if Space Jam 2 happened, the Michael Jordan comparisons will not stop and there’s enough of that.
LeBron James, like a lot of great NBA players should still get the chance to walk the red carpet, but not with Bugs and Lola Bunny but with Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash. LeBron James should star in a My Little Pony movie. It could be called “My Little Brony”, which is a terrible pun and is stepping in the world of “Bronies” the adult male fandom of My Little Pony. “The Untitled My Little Pony starring LeBron James Project” should work for now.
LeBron would fit more comfortably in the land of Equestria than Tune Land. Bugs Bunny, arguably the greatest cartoon character of all time set the standards for other cartoon characters much like Michael Jordan did with NBA players today. Bugs was much more raw and daring that he required some censorship later on in his career which made a great 1-2 punch with Michael’s game. LeBron pre-Decision and even now in his championship days, has been known as a friendly and nice guy. You can always see him playing ball with the kids during pre-game shootaround or at a rented mansion for his dozen sponsorship commercials. Bugs and Michael are far too above the fun and games of video bombing, they’re out there pulling the real pranks like throwing dynamite sticks at Elmer Fudd or managing the Charlotte Bobcats.
LeBron James and Twilight Sparkle are more of a perfect match. LeBron is all about friendship whether it be with his teammates, his kids or his fans. He cares for others and cares what others think of him. He went through a rough patch with the media after The Decision but now he’s overcome that and won everyone back including Cleveland. LeBron’s a student of friendship and obviously still has a lot to learn which Twilight Sparkle can assist.
LeBron and the ponies would dominate the court against Nightmare Moon. The best chance at winning is sharing the basketball, which is what LeBron and the ponies would be all about. Imagine if LeBron James decided to team with Amare Stoudemire in New York back in 2011, some thought that was the best choice at that time but you can obviously see now that would have been a disaster. LeBron going to Tune Land would give him the unnecessary pressure that will prevent him from being his natural self. LeBron, go to Ponyville where you can make not 1, not 2, not… wait actually just make 1 movie and make it My Little Pony. No need for a sequel unless the Bronies demand it.
The Final Seconds
The Final Seconds gets its first exclusive interview!
Can Kevin Durant break Kobe’s 81-point game?
If there is any being out there, other than the ghost of Wilt Chamberlain that can beat Kobe Bryant’s 81-point record of most points scored in a game, that being has a name, and his name’s Kevin Durant.
Two main factors have to fall into place. Russell Westbrook has to start passing the ball, and not just getting 8-10 assists, but really passing the ball. As great of a shooter Westbrook is, there’s an even greater one on his team.
The second biggest factor, Kendrick Perkins also has to start passing the ball. He has to start passing the ball to Kevin Durant, not to the other team, not to the refs and not to the fans.
Stop looking at your shooting percentage and just start chucking the ball. Give the fans what they want. Go for the kill Durant!
I suggest we bring old school dunkers to the dunk contest!

Paul George Dunks > Blake Griffin Dunks
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for the poster dunks and players getting humiliated as they fall on their own hardwood floor. They’ve just become more rare especially with Blake Griffin. Players are now ducking to avoid going viral. When players do give him a challenge, it’s the sweetest thing. But unfortunately there are only a few who will truly go for the block. That’s why most big men bully him on the floor with an elbow. Blake Griffin is a freak of nature when it comes to air time so I have higher standards for him.
Otherwise, I’d rather watch Paul George dunk. He’ll give you a good poster dunk if it’s the Eastern Conference Finals against the Miami Heat on “Birdman”. But I like what he’s doing on the open floor. Windmill, 360, double clutch, reverse, he’s got it all. It’s not bad sportsmanship. It’s entertainment. It’s basketball. It’s a young Vince Carter and Kobe Bryant. Even if you’re Evan Turner and your team is sticking it to the Lakers in the final seconds and you double-clutch reverse slam rather than hold the ball, that’s entertainment. That’s going viral. You don’t have to apologize next time Evan.
Paul George has given us those dunks multiple times this year and no one is mad. Everyone tweets about it and immediately searches for a video before the other team gets to inbound the ball. It’s the same as a Blake Griffin poster if not better. So while Blake Griffin continues to search for his next victim let’s all enjoy Paul George and his creativity he has given to us fans.
About 2 years ago I wrote and directed a television pilot for my senior thesis and you can finally watch it on YouTube! Thanks to everyone who worked, acted and supported this silly idea I had. If you like Puppets I think you’ll like this.
