The polarizing father-son duo of LaVar and Lonzo Ball made an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Monday night, and you'll never believe this: LaVar had controversial things to say. As usual, Lonzo was his calm, collected self, while his father spouted off the hottest of takes that once again included a claim that he could beat the greatest basketball player to walk the Earth. "He too small, he too little," LaVar said, doubling down on a previous claim that he could take Michael Jordan in a game of 1-on-1. "If you weighing 210 pounds, we playing 1-on-1 -- you know I'm undefeated playing 1-on-1? I don't lose 1-on-1 ... If he [Michael Jordan] played me 1-on-1 he'd cry." And in case MJ was watching in anger from one of his mansions late on Monday, LaVar made sure to note that public interest in a 1-on-1 game with he and The Goat would be non-existent. "Who would want to watch two 50-year-olds play now?" he added. Answer: Literally everyone in America. When asked if Lonzo could take MJ 1-on-1 now, he followed suit with his father's boast. "Right now? Yes." he said.
