LaVar Ball's Wiki: Could Ball Really Beat Michael Jordan?

And then there's the topic of Ball's three sons, UCLA scoring machine Lonzo and high schoolers LiAngelo and LaMelo, both UCLA commits.

Lonzo Ball, a star freshman that has led UCLA to its best regular season in almost a decade, is a rumored top five pick in the upcoming NBA Draft.

Ball told USA Today that it will take a billion dollars (that is billion with a b) to get his trio of hooping sons - Lonzo, LiAngelo and LaMelo.

"That's our number, a billion, straight out of the gate", he said. "Give us $100 million over 10 years".

"To get my boys a little $100,000 vehicle, that's nothing, " LaVar said. Now, I understand milking the product for whatever you can squeeze out of whoever is willing to pay, but this seems a bit outrageous. He transferred there from Washington State, where he barely saw the floor, averaging 2.2 points per game in 1987-88. And the third? Well, if you missed what LaVar Ball had to say about another certain National Basketball Association legend recently, one who answers to His Airness, here's the quote for your bewilderment, annoyance, and amusement at once.

"I'm too old and fat to play basketball, but I'll challenge Mr. Ball to a one-on-one", Barkley said. ". I need to go back and Google this guy, because maybe I missed the Ball era when he was dominating, winning championships everywhere".

One setback for the Ball family would be that earliest a company could commit would be in three years, due to the fact NCAA athletes cannot have endorsement deals. He'll head to UCLA after he graduates, following the footsteps of his older brother - who has made it clear he's headed to the National Basketball Association after his one season at Westwood. When officers arrived, they found a pile of the Ball family's belongings sitting in the center of the home, which is where the burglars likely left them when they realized police were on their way.

LaVar is a 49-year-old basketball dad, who stands at six-foot-six and weighs 270 pounds.

One person who hasn't fallen for it and gives me faith that not everyone is the same in elite sport is Paris Saint-Germain soccer player Marco Verratti.

"He can not stop me one-on-one".

Right. He's talking about Michael Jordan there, and not the actor. He's not fast enough.

Charles Barkley, never one to back down from confrontation, made his feelings toward LaVar known during an interview onMike & Mike.

Beyond all his loud talk, what he really does best is get people to talk about his sons. "AAnd he can only make so many shots outside before I make every bucket under the rim".
