Richaun Holmes takes a shot at NBA fans from earlier generations criticizing LeBron James’s ‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’
LeBron James’s new movie ‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’, isn’t exactly a cinematic masterpiece, and it was never meant to be that either. The movie’s main audience is children. And, when you make a movie for children, you don’t often think about character development, or any sophisticated plots or emotional storylines.
Still, like most of everything the King has done in his career, fans of older generations are quick to make the argument that Michael Jordan did it better. And yep, there are some that actually take this debate very seriously.
Watching genuine adults so seriously argue about which kid’s movie is better is frankly a bit pitiful to see. And it seems that Sacramento Kings star Richaun Holmes feels the same way.
“What’s going on man?”: Richaun Holmes can’t believe what he is seeing as adults keep a childish debate going
Whether you like it or not, the fact of the matter is, LeBron James’s iteration of Space Jam did really well with kids. Most children coming out of the theater have exclaimed their love for the movie. But, of course, some fans of His Airness just can’t bear to see the King get any credit if it’s something even remotely similar to what their idol did.
Like many of us, Richaun Holmes couldn’t stop cringing at what he was seeing. And recently, spoke out about it on Twitter.

What’s going on indeed.
We all love a well-versed goat debate from time. But maybe, just maybe, arguing on who acted better in a kid’s movie is taking it too far.
At the end of the day, it was the original Space Jam that inspired many of today’s NBA stars. And given how well it has been received so far, perhaps LeBron James’s iteration could have the same impact on the NBA’s next generation.
