LaVar Ball got burned by Michael Jordan who said that LaVar couldn’t beat him even if he was one-legged.
In March, Ball told Josh Peter of USA Today that he would beat Jordan in a one-on-one game.
“Back in my heyday, I would kill Michael Jordan one-on-one,” Ball said. “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. He cannot stop me one-on-one. He better make every shot ’cause he can’t go around me. He’s not fast enough. And he can only make so many shots outside before I make every bucket under the rim.”
On Monday, his Airness was asked about Ball’s comments during a Q & A at his basketball camp in Santa Barbara, California.

“You got to understand the source. I think he played college, maybe?” Jordan said. “He averaged 2.2 points a game. Really? It doesn’t deserve a response, but I’ma give it to you because you asked the question. I don’t think he could beat me if I was one-legged.”
Ouch. Looks like LaVar might have to call the fire department or go to the hospital because he just got burned. By the way, what makes Ball think that he could beat MJ in a game of basketball? His Airness is the greatest basketball player of all-time and LaVar was never that good of a player, as evidenced by his stats of 2.2 points, 2.3 rebounds and shot 40.4 percent from the field in 26 games for Washington State, according to Tim Daniels of Bleacher Report. Meanwhile, MJ won six NBA championships and was a five-time MVP.
Seems like this matchup is just a little unfair, doesn’t it?
