Michael Jordan fires back at LaVar Ball with epic slam


Michael Jordan fires back at LaVar Ball with epic slam

Michael Jordan is still the GOAT of trash talk.

The best basketball player ever — and quite possibly the best athlete ever — actually responded to LaVar Ball this week.

The extremely outspoken Ball said back in March he believes he could beat MJ in a 1-on-1 basketball game if both were still in their prime.

Jordan finally fired back and as predicted, his response is gold:

"You got to understand the source. I think he played college, maybe? He averaged 2.2 points a game. Really? It doesn't deserve a response, but I'ma give it to you because you asked the question. I don't think he could beat me if I was one-legged."

Dang. That's ice-cold (and also probably true). 

Here's Ball's comments to USA TODAY back in March:

“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. 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."

We should totally simulate this game, just to see how many points MJ would win by.
