LaVar Ball Has Crazy Odds to Beat Michael Jordan in Basketball


The 2020 NBA Draft occurred last week, and the Charlotte Hornets selected LaMelo Ball at third overall. As you would expect, this re-ignited the former narrative of Michael Jordan and LaVar Ball playing a game of one-on-one.

In hilarious fashion, Bovada Sportsbook has betting odds up, and Ball has better odds to win than you would think.

Back in 2017, at the height of Ball’s insanity, he went on First Take and argued that he would be Jordan in one-on-one. This was the moment where the infamous line “I’m undefeated, never lost” was born.

Jordan caught wind of this and had a hilarious line of his own. He said that Ball “couldn’t beat me if I was one-legged.” No stranger to trash talk, MJ also said this of Ball:

“You got to understand the source. I think he played college, maybe? … He averaged 2.2 points a game. Really?”

Michael Jordan is the majority owner of the Hornets and clearly has a say with their operations. This is why this story began to heat back up, following the selection of LaMelo Ball. “Tell MJ: Here we come! Tell MJ we’re coming,” said LaVar. We legitimately could see this go down at some point this season.
