LaVar Ball says it’ll take $200 million to play Michael Jordan 1-on-1

LaVar Ball says he won’t play Charlotte Hornets owner and NBA Hall of Famer Michael Jordan one-on-one unless $200 million is put up by someone.

Ball, who thinks he can beat Jordan in a game of one-on-one, spoke to football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe about the game everyone wants to see.

Those who thought LaVar Ball was going to be quiet after Michael Jordan and the Hornets drafted LaMelo Ball clearly don’t know who LaVar is. He is a marketing genius who always tries to keep his family’s name in the news no matter what it takes.

Obviously, Jordan would destroy LaVar in a one-on-one game. However, a lot of NBA fans would probably watch the matchup just to see MJ shut LaVar up for good.

Hate him or love him, LaVar is a great dad. He has two sons in the NBA and both were top three picks. The Los Angeles Lakers drafted Lonzo Ball with the second overall pick in the 2017 draft, while LaMelo was the third pick in the 2020 draft.

After drafting LaMelo, Jordan and the Hornets signed Gordon Hayward in unrestricted free agency. Charlotte’s core is now made up of LaMelo, Hayward, Devonte’ Graham, Malik Monk, Miles Bridges and PJ Washington.

The Hornets missed the playoffs in 2019-20, but Jordan is hoping his team can get back to the postseason in 2020-21 with LaMelo and Hayward in the fold.
