[h2]Space Jam lawsuit[/h2]
Due to contractual obligations from acting in the 1996 movie Space Jam, several players were supposed to or not allowed to be featured in NBA Hangtime. Among the six more prominently featured players in the film, those not appearing in NBA Hangtime were Michael Jordan, Muggsy Bogues, and Charles Barkley; Patrick Ewing, Larry Johnson and Shawn Bradley, on the other hand, do appear in the game.
In an unrelated note, Shaquille O'Neal was left out of NBA Hangtime because of his contractual obligations to the movie Kazaam.
