Local Dad Discovers Michael Jordan through Space Jam, Amazed by Arm Stretch Move
Local father of two, Tom Williams, recently had his mind blown after watching the classic movie Space Jam with his kids. Williams said he had never heard of Michael Jordan before, but after watching him on the big screen, he's now convinced that Jordan is "one of the greatest athletes of our time."
"I can't believe I never knew about this Michael Jordan guy before," Williams told reporters. "He's amazing! I mean, did you see the way he stretched his arm to make that basket? That's some serious talent right there."
Despite his newfound admiration for Jordan, Williams admits he's not much of a sports fan and has never been interested in basketball.
"I'm more of a golf guy myself," Williams said. "But after watching Space Jam, I think I might become a basketball fan too. Who wouldn't want to watch Michael Jordan in action?"
Williams looked confused when asked about Jordan's long and storied career in the NBA.
"He's a basketball player?" Williams said, surprised. "I had no idea. I just thought he was an actor. And that arm stretch thing he did in the movie, do you think he can do that in real life?"
Despite his lack of knowledge about Jordan's career, Williams remains enthusiastic about his new favorite athlete and plans to watch more basketball games in the future.
"I'm excited to see what else Michael can do on the court," Williams said. "Maybe he'll even show us that arm stretch move in real life."
Only time will tell if Williams' newfound enthusiasm for basketball and his belief in Jordan's arm stretch capabilities will stick or if he'll move on to the next big thing after Space Jam.
