Lonzo Ball joins father LaVar in saying he could beat Michael Jordan one-on-one

It seems like a lifetime ago when we had not yet heard of LaVar Ball, but it was only in March that he landed on many people’s radars. Among his initial pronouncements that month was that in his “heyday,” he would “kill Michael Jordan one-on-one,” and, since then, Ball has hardly backed off that boast.

Now Ball has been joined by his son Lonzo, who is set to become a very high pick in the NBA draft later this month (and whose stellar freshman season at UCLA is what brought attention to his outspoken father in the first place). In an appearance Monday on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Lonzo Ball claimed that he, too, could take Jordan one-on-one.

Of course, that’s a bit easier to believe, particularly as Kimmel framed that question to the 19-year-old in terms of squaring of against the 54-year-old Jordan at their current ages. “He’ll beat anybody 50 years old,” LaVar Ball said of his son, in what must qualify as one of his least outlandish remarks.
