Now that LaMelo Ball is a member of the Charlotte Hornets, some basketball fans actually have hope that the 1-on-1 game between his outspoken father LaVar and six-time NBA champion Michael Jordan might actually come to fruition.
Ball, who was drafted No. 3 overall by Jordan’s Hornets, said during his introductory news conference Friday at the Spectrum Center that he “doesn’t think it’s going to happen.”
“And I think we know how it would turn out, to be honest,” Ball said with a smile.
When asked to elaborate further: ”Well, I mean it is my pops and my boss, so I’m on both sides now.”
It was back in 2017 when LaVar Ball made waves by speaking on Michael Jordan.
“Back in my heyday, I would kill Michael Jordan one-on-one,” Ball told Josh Peter of USA Today in March 2017.
Jordan was made aware of Ball’s comments and offered this burn:
“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’mma give it to you because you asked the question,” Jordan said, via Ryne Nelson of Slam Online. “I don’t think he could beat me if I was one-legged.”
