NFL Draft QB Talk

Covering the impact of the coronavirus on the world of sport

At 35, Chris Paul showed on Wednesday why he was one of the best playmakers to ever play the game by helping the Suns to a 117-113 overtime victory over Utah Jazz, the best team in the Western Conference What made the performance even more impressive, however, was the low-key tribute to “Space Jam” on the sidelines

While hydrating near the team bench, the show saw Paul drinking from a plastic bottle surrounded by a piece of paper with “Chris’ Secret Stuff” written on it This is a reference at the original “Space Jam”, in which Michael Jordan and his team of Looney Tunes characters were in the locker room devastated by the halftime deficit they had to face against the Monstars, only for Bugs Bunny to pull out a labeled bottle “Michael’s Secret Stuff” and give almost everyone – except the Wayne Knight character – a sip to reinvigorate them for a second half comeback

In the film, it is later revealed that Bugs only slapped this label on a regular water bottle, proving that the Tune Squad had the knack for beating the Monstars in them throughout. Just like in the movie, Paul’s bottle wasn’t filled with anything special beyond a typical sports drink, but unlike “Space Jam,” the God Point probably didn’t need to. to be motivated to be better He just did it thoroughly

Paul then scored 16 points in the fourth quarter to a stat line that resulted in 29 points and nine assists, including the last two free throws that froze the game in overtime.

It would be nice if this was an accidental reference to a movie that many associate with their childhood, but what is more likely is that it is a slight nod to marketing eye on the upcoming sequel to “Space Jam” with Paul’s Banana Boat pal James Lebron At least his mini-commercial happened in a win
