LaVar Ball, he's easy to hate.
Now he's easy to laugh at. A video has surfaced showing Ball in a rec-league game looking helpless against mere mortals. One can only wonder now how the brash father would have fared against greats like Michael Jordan or Charles Barkley in a one-on-one game ... at any age.
Complete coverage of the Philadelphia 76ers and their rivals in the NBA from NBC Sports Philadelphia.
If you have five free minutes today, you can witness Ball get stuffed down in the paint twice and look even more incompetent on offense.
Most would think that Ball would dominant these "rec-league scrubs." But talk is always cheap.
Ball averaged 22.2 points per game at West LA College ... community college. Ball also played at Washington State (Division I) and Cal State LA (division II).
He averaged 15.8 ppg and 8.9 rebounds per game at Cal State LA, but only mustered a mere 2.2 ppg and 2.3 rpg in 26 games for Washington State.
Apparently, Ball has talked a big game his entire life. Per Rich Cimini with ESPN, Ball was just as cocky when on the New York Jets practice team.
Ball never made it out of the two training camps he attended in 1994 and '95.
So, if the video of Ball playing against your average rec-league players does not reassure the fact he would never beat MJ in a game of one-on-one, then try watching a computer simulation of Ball vs. Jordan.
The result ... not surprising.
