When the Monstars showed up at the gym they start picking on Michael and making him into a shape of a basketball. After Tweety got hurt by the Monstars, Michael decides to play basketball with the Looney Tunes. Later at the basketball game the Monstars start playing rough to get their hands on the ball so they can win. During halftime the Monstars boss Mr. Swackhammer showed up for pep talk then they discovered Stan after he snuck into the Monstars locker room. At the second of the game the Looney Tunes start playing well and the Monstars commanding lead is smaller. When Swackhammer calls for a time out he is very grumpy with the Monstars for not stealing Michael's talent. Michael decides to raise the stakes with Swackhammer after a deal Swackhammer forces the Monstars to play dirty and crush the Looney Tunes. Michael realizes that they need a fifth player first he chooses Stan but the Monstars piled on Stan. Then Bill Murray shows up as a fifth player when Michael makes the final shot he is grabbed by two Monstars trying stop Michael. The Tune Squad won the game and the Monstars lost Swackhammer was furious and berates them for losing the game.
