A few days ago, we tried to answer a question: What would happen if LaVar Ball and Michael Jordan played 1-on-1? With the help of NBA2K, we learned that the Hall of Fame guard who may be the greatest basketball player to ever live would wipe the floor with the guy who looks incredibly uncomfortable when he plays.
This got us wondering, what would happen if we put LaVar Ball up against another NBA megastar? This time, we thought it would be fun to see how he would survive in a game of 1-on-1 against LeBron James. There’s a little bit of personal beef between the two, as LeBron got angry after Ball talked about his kids in a way that he did not like.
You can probably guess where this is going, but to clear up any doubt, James beat Ball every time they played. None of the games were especially close, and in many of them, Ball didn’t even get out of single digits.
Like the last time we did this, Ball was able to keep things close-ish during the first game, which ended 21-14. From there, the best basketball player alive thrashed the former football player every other time they played. Again, who knew?
Listen, this is not a foolproof way of deciding who is better. I’m saying this because it implies that LaVar Ball could score on LeBron James in basically any way. To give Ball some credit, I am sure he can score on LeBron if King James was tackled by all three of his sons at the same time, but other than that, it’s hard to imagine that he’d be able to get buckets on the four-time MVP.
