Not backing down from his quest to prove his superiority to Michael Jordan on the basketball court, LaVar Ball insists he would dominate the NBA legend in a game of one-on-one.

Per ESPN.com's Jeff Goodman, Ball said he would beat Jordan by a score of "13-2, he got two—and only reason I give him two is 'cause he's Jordan. He's too little, too little to guard me."

Ball's comment about Jordan's size is unusual. Ball was listed at 6'6" during his college days at Washington State, per Sports Reference. Jordan is listed at 6'6" and 216 pounds by NBA.com.

The outspoken father of 2017 NBA draft prospect Lonzo Ball told USA Today's Josh Peter in March he "would kill" Jordan in a game of one-on-one during his heyday: "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."

In May, Ball told FS1's Undisputed (via CBS Sports' Chris Barnewall) that Jordan couldn't sell $495 sneakers like Lonzo and Big Baller Brand are doing "because he ain't Lonzo Ball."
