If you don't have any idea how big Michael Jordan was back in the late 80's and 90's, you must be young, because he was huge. And when he retired from basketball to play baseball in 1993, it was an even bigger deal. The greatest basketball player on the planet, stepping away to play a completely different sport.

Who knew that the whole reason he left was to set up the film Space Jam. Okay, that's not really what happened, but it beats the conspiracies that Jordan was secretly suspended by the NBA for gambling issues and they needed an excuse for him to not be a Chicago Bull for 2 years.

Well, if you're looking for a true blast from the the past, just CLICK HERE. The original Space Jam website is still up and running. Nothing like bringing flashbacks to the Internet of the 90s and using Webcrawler to find things.
