NickSports To Premiere "Like Mike" On Friday 16th June 2017

Nicktoons USA's NickSports TV programming block will premiere the popular comedy movie Like Mike, Lil' Bow Wow and Jonathan Lipnicki, on Friday 16th June 2017 at 9:00pm ET/PT!

In Like Mike, fourteen year old, hoops-loving orphan Calvin Cambridge (Lil' Bow Wow) has a dream: to be a famous basketball player -- to mix it up among the NBA's greatest. But in a game dominated by giants with unparalleled athletic abilities, Calvin's diminutive stature and limited skills, make this a far-off fantasy. Or is it? After he laces up a mysterious pair of old sneakers inscribed with the faded initials MJ, Calvin makes the leap from playground hijinks to NBA superstardom!
