Jor­dan airs views on Ball’s brag­ging

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

Michael Jor­dan fi­nally is­sued his re­sponse to LaVar Ball’s bravado.

“I don’t think he could beat me if I was one-legged,” Jor­dan said.

Ball, the out­spo­ken fa­ther of Los An­ge­les Lak­ers rookie Lonzo Ball, pre­vi­ously said he would beat Jor­dan in a game of 1-on-1 back in his prime. Jor­dan, a six-time NBA cham­pion and con­sid­ered one of the great­est play­ers of all time, had held his tongue on a re­sponse — at least for a while.

“You’ve got to un­der­stand the source,” Jor­dan said when asked about Ball. “He played, I think, col­lege ... maybe? He av­er­aged 2.2 points per game. Re­ally?”

Ball played one sea­son at Wash­ing­ton State.
