Any man who says he can take the great Michael Jordan in a game of one-on-one basketball must have confidence in himself.

“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 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.”

It’s worth noting that Ball played basketball for Washington State during the 1987-88 season and averaged 2.2 points, 2.3 rebounds a game before transferring to Cal-State Los Angeles in search of more playing time. Jordan, meanwhile, averaged 35 points and 5.5 rebounds for the Chicago Bulls that same season and is widely regarded as the greatest player in basketball history.

“Now in a game of five-on-five, (Jordan) might do some damage, but I’m going to do some damage too,’’ Ball added.

LaVar Ball is a man who we all know has no shortage of confidence in himself or any of his three sons.

There's no doubting that all LaVar's sons are very talented in the game of basketball but as for LaVar... He averaged 2 ppg and 2 rpg during his years playing college basketball. This makes his statement saying he could take Michael Jordan in a game of basketball completely ludicrous.

What makes it even more ludicrous is this newly-surfaced footage of LaVar playing basketball.

Here's LaVar taking part in a game of pickup basketball at a Neighborhood Center. (Ball is wearing No. 8 on the red team.)

So sit back, have a watch and enjoy!
