Back in 1996, the world was set on fire by the theatrical classic that was Space Jam. Okay, so maybe it wasn’t that big of a deal, but to a 9-year old me it was the greatest thing ever.

There were some great cameos in the movie, from Charles Barkley to Bill Murray to Larry Bird and even Shawn Bradley. Remember that scene where Jim Rome bashes Jordan and his baseball skills for all of 43 seconds?

Well it turns out Rome is still getting royalties for his emotionally charged performance.


Okay so he’s not exactly getting paid big bucks, but hey $6.38 is enough to make a quick Starbucks run. Don’t blow it all in one place Jim!
