Marques Johnson has an idea for a White Men Can’t Jump spinoff, which he jokingly pitched while a recent guest on The Rich Eisen Show.
The retired five-time NBA All-Star turned Milwaukee Bucks’ analyst was asked where he thought his character, Raymond, from the 1992 sports-comedy classic is today.
“Somebody was trying to get the sequel going, but it hasn’t gone anywhere,” said an earnest Johnson, before joking, “They should clip that thing and make it about Raymond. I can give some narration and be old school Raymond, and we can get a young Raymond for some flashbacks. We can get it cracking.”
