While we enjoy the 1996 live-action/animated film Space Jam as much as anybody, neither Michael Jordan nor the Looney Tunes gang could make this basketball any cooler. The Hong Kong lifestyle brand GrowthRing & Supply presents this basketball in celebration of the 60th anniversary of NASA as well as the aerospace organization’s collaboration with the independent watchmaker Anicorn (which seems like a confusing array of collaborations, but we won’t stop them). The basketball – as well as a line of hooded sweatshirts – build on the success of the special edition Anicorn x NASA 60th Anniversary wristwatch.
An NBA-regulation ball in terms of both size and weight, the Space Jam NASA Basketball sets itself apart with an exclusive microfiber composite leather cover of bright, spacesuit white. This color dramatically offsets a brilliant red stamp of the iconic NASA logo above a dark black “Anicorn Oddjects Space Jam” stamp. The basketball also features a black stamp that displays the GPS coordinates of NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.
