We have a good and big squad.”Franck [Ribery] and Arjen [Robben] have been training, so I have to leave one, two at home anyway.

Bill Murray wants some credit for setting up Michael Jordan’s game-winning shot in ‘Space Jam’

first_imgMichael Jordan always had Scottie Pippen by his side as the Bulls captured six NBA championships in the 1990s, but don’t forget about the other wingman who helped Jordan secure one of the biggest wins of his career.Yes, it’s time to give Bill Murray some damn credit. In an interview on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Murray, a huge supporter of Chicago’s pro sports teams, was asked about “The Last Dance.” Murray said “of course” he’s been watching ESPN’s documentary series on the 1997-98 Bulls, and he even spotted himself in some of the archival footage because he starred alongside Jordan in the 1996 film “Space Jam.”And speaking of “Space Jam,” Murray wanted to remind everyone the Tune Squad’s victory over the Monstars wouldn’t have been possible without his clutch play.MORE: MJ’s six championship Bulls teams, ranked”People forget that I got the assist on the game-winning basket,” Murray told Kimmel. “So easily forgotten. … I stole the ball. I made the pass. I got nothing. I wasn’t even interviewed after. But that was a lot of fun making that.”Let’s check the tape here.Murray may have gotten a steal in the box score, but Daffy Duck caused the turnover. Murray did tell him what to do before the play, though, so fair enough.There is no question about the assist. Murray dished the ball to Jordan, who beat the buzzer and avoided a life of servitude on Moron Mountain.Aside from the lack of recognition for his efforts, Murray enjoyed his experience on the “Space Jam” set, especially when the actors had a little free time.”We would just go play golf for an hour, play three or four holes of golf with Larry Bird and Michael and myself,” Murray said. “That was a lot of fun.” Not a bad way to make a living.You can watch Murray’s full interview with Kimmel below.last_img read more
