Charlotte Hornets first-round draft pick LaMelo Ball commented on who would win in a game of one-on-one between Michael Jordan, the owner of his new team, and LaVar Ball, his father.

“I don’t think it’s gonna happen,” Melo said. “And then, I think we know how it would turn out, to be honest. I mean it is my pops and my boss … so I’m on both sides now.”
The debate between the two has been going on for years. LaVar famously said he “could beat him with 1 hand tied behind my back with some glasses on with one eye lens out with some flips flops on in the rain.”
Jordan responded: “I don’t think he could beat me if I was one-legged.”
LaMelo is now the second Ball brother to be drafted in the top five of the NBA draft. His brother Lonzo was taken by the Los Angeles Lakers with the second overall pick of the 2017 NBA draft. He was later traded to the New Orleans Pelicans in a package deal for Anthony Davis.
The Hornets finished 10th in the Eastern Conference in 2020 with just 22 wins, albeit during a limited season due to the coronavirus pandemic.
