Jordan: Lavar Ball Couldn’t Win ‘if I was one-legged’

on

Michael Jordan is quite sure he’d beat LaVar Ball in a game of one-on-one … even “if I was one-legged.”

Months after Ball made headlines by saying he “would kill” Jordan “back in my heyday,” the Hall of Famer finally discussed Ball’s comments.

“You got to understand the source. I think he played college, maybe?” Jordan told campers at his Flight School basketball camp Monday. “He averaged 2.2 points a game. Really?

“It doesn’t deserve a response, but I’m [going to] give it to you because you asked the question. I don’t think he could beat me if I was one-legged.”

Ball, the father of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, fired the first shot in March.

“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. “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.”

Ball responded to Jordan’s assertion Tuesday as mere “entertainment.”
