Watch Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan and Comedians Read 'Space Jam'

Members of the Clippers and comedians performed a live reading of the ‘Space Jam’ script in LA.

The 1996 "film" Space Jam, starring Michael Jordan and the Looney Tunes, was a seminal piece of pop culture for millenials like myself. As I've grown up, I've learned to accept Space Jam for what it is: a very campy cartoon that was a propaganda piece for Jordan. It still has a ton of entertainment value, but I realize I liked that movie a little bit too much when I was a kid.

But this past March, comedians Sean O'Connor and Jensen Karp organized a Live Read of Space Jam at the UCB Theater in Los Angeles with a Mon-Star cast of comedians and surprise guests: Seth Green, Nick Kroll, Paul Scheer, Ben Schwartz, Jerrod Carmichael, Danielle Fishel (of Boy Meets World) and Los Angeles Clippers stars DeAndre Jordan (as Swackhammer and Charles Barkley) and Blake Griffin (as Michael Jordan). Funny or Die was there with a film crew, and they compiled a "best-of" video that captured all of funniest moments.

The NBA players performed just as well in this setting as they do on the court at the Staples Center. DeAndre Jordan especially wowed the crowd with his spot-on Barkley impression, and Seth Green's interesting choice to play Bugs Bunny as an R. Kelly impersonator (I think) also made for some hilarious line reads.
