LaVar Ball is willing to put someone else’s money where his mouth is.
If you remember, Ball once infamously said he could beat Michael Jordan in a game of one-on-one. It must not have bothered Jordan too much because the Charlotte Hornets, which Jordan owns, just drafted Ball’s son, LaMelo.
Anyway, LaVar Ball told TMZ Sports a game against Jordan could still happen — for $200 million.
“Realistically, neither one of us is gonna do this,” Ball said. “We over 50!”
Ball, who once predicted all three of his sons would play in the NBA, is most likely wrong again. Jordan would almost definitely play. If he didn’t, it wouldn’t be because of a silly thing like age.
It more likely would be because everyone knows Ball was never anywhere close to Jordan’s league. Not now. Not ever. Not for $200 million.
Of the two of them, only one actually is a big baller. The other just calls himself one.
