The director of the original Space Jam movie, starring Michael Jordan, says Space Jam 2, starring LeBron James, is "boring."
Joe Pytka told TMZ that "Space Jam: A New legacy" was so boring, he couldn't sit through the entire movie.
Pytka pointed out that when the original Space Jam was made in 1996, Michael Jordan was the biggest star in the world. He added that LeBron can't carry Jordan's water bottle.
"The truth is that LeBron ain't Michael," Pytka said.
Space Jam: A New Legacy topped last weekend's box office with a respectable $31.1 million in ticket sales.
Black Widow landed at the No. 2 spot with $25.8 million.
LeBron dunked on his "haters" after the box office receipts were announced on Monday.
"Hi Haters," he tweeted.
