Michael Jordan: LaVar Ball couldn't beat me one-on-one 'if I was one-legged'

"I don't think he could beat me if I was one-legged", Jordan says to a round of applause, only after mentioning that the comment doesn't even deserve a response. Beating him on one leg might be a bit of a stretch, but late-career Jordan made his living from the elbows, so provided he was able to get some one-legged fadeaways off, I wouldn't even count a gimpy Jordan out.

LaVar Ball, father of Lonzo Ball #2 of the Los Angeles Lakers, jokes with fans at halftime of a 2017 Summer League game between the Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers at the Thomas & Mack Center on July 7, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"I would just back [Jordan] in and lift him off the ground and call a foul every time he fouls me when I do a jump hook to the right or the left", Ball told USA Today Sports as to how he'd beat Jordan. ". I need to go back and Google this guy, because maybe I missed the Ball era when he was dominating, winning championships everywhere". "And he can only make so many shots outside before I make every bucket under the rim". LaVar Ball had a college career at Washington State and Cal-State Los Angeles in 1987-1988, where he averaged 2.2 points per game to Cal-State Los Angeles. That same season, Jordan averaged an NBA-leading 35.0 points for the Chicago Bulls.

"Look at everybody, man".

Just last week, days before he told a female referee "to stay in her lane" and months after he told a female reporter to "stay in yo lane", LaVar refused to heed his own advice, spitting more drivel about how he and his teenage son LaMelo would beat Jordan and LeBron James in a game of two-on-two. That's what I'm talking about. "But I would assume, or I would say, if I had to sit down and talk to him right now ... Now we're both. looking like we can't play".
