The Atlanta Hawks are on the road Tuesday night facing the Chicago Bulls, the team his airness Michael Jordan put on the map with six championships in the 1990s. With their hometown set to embrace snowpocalypse 2.0, they begin a three-game road trip that ends after the NBA All-Star break.
The game against the Bulls didn’t start so well, however. They fell behind by as many as 25 in the first half, eventually going into halftime facing a 58-39 deficit.
What was the approach in the locker room at the half? What adjustments could they possibly make to cut into the 19-point Chicago lead and make a run at winning the game?
Well, it’s not known what Coach Budenholzer may have said to them during halftime, but the Atlanta Hawks official team twitter had an amazingly witty idea:
Raid Michael’s Secret Stuff!
You heard that right. They took it all the way back to Bugs Bunny’s brilliant halftime idea in the Warner Bros. film Space Jam.

Considering that the idea came from a cartoon bunny and was, in essence, a placebo (being faucet water with no inherent magical powers), it is doubtful that utilizing Michael’s Secret Stuff! will actually work.
