We”re still waiting on Space Jam 2, but “90s nostalgia is alive and well with a basketball star of today in Space Jam 3

The short film by YouTuber Ryan Higa hit the web today, and it features Brooklyn Nets player Jeremy Lin getting transported into the world of anime characters. He soon finds himself having to shoot hoops alongside Naruto and Sailor Moon.

There”s plenty of homages to the 1996 classic here, including Michael”s Secret Stuff – but Jeremy”s Secret Stuff, it turns out, is what the NBA player uses on his oft-wild hair.

Lin”s hair is exactly part of what makes him a good fit for an anime Toon Squad – one of his “dos once got plenty of comparisons to Goran of Dragon Ball Z.

Meanwhile, the latest on Space Jam 2 is that another Lin – Justin Lin, of Star Trek Beyond and the Fast & Furious franchise – will direct and co-write the sequel with LeBron James on board.
