Back in March, when basketball dad LaVar Ball was still establishing himself as a first class troll, he claimed he could beat Michael Jordan in one in 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,’’ Ball, who's 48-years-old to MJ's 54 said. “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.’’LaVar doubled down on those claims in June, telling Jimmy Kimmel he'd make Jordan "cry" if they ever faced off.
Michael Jordan didn't respond at the time, as he was probably playing golf and actually making money off of his shoe brand.

But MJ did respond yesterday, during a Q+A session at a Santa Barbara, CA event.
You got to understand the source. I think he played college, maybe? 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," Jordan said. "I don't think he could beat me if I was one-legged."One-legged Michael Jordan vs. LaVar Ball, who you got?
