Months ago, the outspoken LaVar Ball said he could beat Michael Jordan in a game of 1-on-1. Jordan stayed quiet on the comments until Monday when he was asked about it in a Q&A session.
“You’ve got to understand the source,” Jordan said. “He played, I think, college, maybe? He averaged 2.2 points per game. Really? It doesn’t dignify an answer, 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.”

Now, Ball has responded on his Big Baller Brand Twitter account to challenge the GOAT on PPV.
Michael, you vs Lavar | 1 v 1 | you with 1 leg, Lavar with 1 arm. Has to be on Pay-Per-View. Let's make it happen. YOU WON'T. pic.twitter.com/F5jw4Fu1l5

LaVar Ball told USA Today in March, “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.”

Ball even showed up on Jimmy Kimmel during the NBA Finals to talk more trash, “You know it’s real, too. He’s too small. He’s too little. If you’re weighing 210 pounds, we’re playing one-on-one — you know I’m undefeated one-on-one, I don’t never lose one-on-one — if he played me, he would cry.”

We are pretty confident this PPV is not going to happen. But if it does, we are all sure the one-legged GOAT will take care of business.
