Giannis passed on Space Jam 2: "I don't like being Hollywood"

Giannis-Space-Jam-2

After over 20 years it was announced the new Space Jam is coming out. However, this time we won't see Michael Jordan in action but LeBron James. James who is the biggest basketball star of today will partner up with Buggs Bunny and other characters the same way Jordan did in the first film.

Aside from Michael Jordan, the first movie featured a couple of other All-Star players whose talents were stolen by the evil Monstars. The new movie was supposed to feature a couple of other famous NBA players. However, it seems all the major ones are not interested in participating.

The latest one who came out and said he would not be participating in the shooting of the new film is the possible MVP this season, Giannis Antetokounmpo. The main reason why Giannis has no interest in this is that he wants to focus on improving his game over the summer. Giannis also said he doesn't feel like being a part of Hollywood.

Giannis believes the time he would need to spend on the set is the time he can use much better improving his game and obviously the extra publicity he would get is not of his slightest concern.

"I don't like being Hollywood. I don't like all this extra drama. I am just going to try to be me."

There were several talks about Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul potentially joining the cast this summer. However, it seems they are also reluctant in joining the cast. LeBron and the rest of the team working on the movie is trying hard to land some big names on the screen, and there will probably be more information about this topic toward the end of the season.
