LaVar Ball just doesn’t know when to stop talking. As once again, the father of Lonzo and the rest of the Ball boys is all about self-promotion and he just won’t shut up. Now he’s set his aim on Michael Jordan and is claiming he could have taken “His Airness” in one-on-one back in his “heyday.”
Ball said the following:
Back in my heyday, I would kill Michael Jordan one-on-one.
“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.”
I’m sorry, but I could not be shaking my head any more emphatically right now.
If you recall, last week LaVar went on Colin Cowherd’s show were he ripped Charles Barkley for criticizing his kids, and his parenting.

Whether or not he knows it, the patriarch of the Ball family is putting a target squarely on the backs of his three sons. For example, NBA teams interested in drafting UCLA star and eldest son Lonzo, know they’ll have to deal with LaVar’s mouth as well. That’s a wildly unattractive prospect for any franchise.
LaVar, just stop talking. Please, stop. No more.
When Jordan hears Lavar Ball says he’ll beat him 1-one-1…
