Besides, who are we to doubt anything the basketball/Airplane legend does?

Well, who are we to judge the bond between an apparently Ewok-saluting man who gave us some of our favorite ’90s albums and a man who gave us some fine basketball highlights? Let’s hope this goes viral as the parties involve intended.
