LaVar Ball is the best known athlete parent in sports today. He’s known for making idiotic statements, most notably that he could beat Michael Jordan in one-one.
Well, LaVar’s got a dad, too, and his pops doesn’t mind saying ridiculous crap either. TMZ caught up with the original Big Baller and asked him about LaVar’s claim he could take down MJ. In true Ball family form, grandpa backed up his son’s delusion:
Yes. When he was younger and he was 6’6”, 270, I would’ve put him against anybody.”
The Ball family, talking ish well into the golden years. Look out for the Big Baller therapeutic walking shoes for $600. They’re gonna be fire.
