We don’t believe you @people
Love & Basketball is one of the most popular movies in the history of Hip-Hop culture. That’s a fact. It’s the 9th highest-grossing basketball film of all-time, but it’s the African-American version of Titanic, and it defined an entire generation’s idea of what real romance is. So, one can imagine the frenzy someone sent the internet in when they tweeted a fake flyer for the sequel to the 2000 film, written by Gina Prince-Bythewood.
Unfortunately, Prince-Bythewood took to Twitter today confirm that Love & Basketball 2 is NOT happening. Turn that frown upside down, we know.
Wow! For the record, there is NO sequel to Love and Basketball happening. Cute picture of Omar and Sanaa though.

Bythewood prevented the internet from breaking, which it would’ve had cult Love & Basketball fans gotten wind of the fact that there would be a sequel dropping on VALENTINE’S DAY of 2015 (of all days), but she certainly broke the hearts of quite a few. Still, we push onward.
